We are now performing laser cataract surgery in Fremont at the Washington Outpatient Surgery Center. Dr. Andersen and Ray are doing this and are the only Doctors in Fremont to do this!
Traditional cataract surgery method requires your surgeon to use a hand-held blade for incisions. The goal of laser surgery is to make the most precise corneal incisions possible. The physicians at Fremont Eye Physicians use Laser Cataract Surgery to allow better accuracy for incision in the size and shape for placement of the replacement lens.
Why is my personal background important?
In order to better tailor the eye examination to your needs, our doctor may review any current vision problems, your general health, as well as discuss your hobbies and lifestyle requirements.
Why does the doctor ask me, “Which is better: one or two?”
While evaluating your prescription, the doctor will ask you to compare a series of lenses to determine which allows you to see clearer. As the differences become less noticeable, the doctor will be closer to finalizing your prescription. If you’re having a hard time choosing between the options, it means you’re almost done with this part of the exam!
Why is it necessary to know my blood pressure?
In addition to other health concerns, high blood pressure can affect the blood vessels in your eyes, which could lead to future vision problems.
Why am I asked to follow a light with my eyes?
This part of the exam helps determine how your pupils and eye muscles react and assists in gauging neurological function.
Is it necessary for the doctor to dilate my pupils?
Although pupil dilatation is not always necessary, the doctor may make this decision during your exam. If required, this painless process is like opening a door so the doctor can fully examine your retina. Dilation can assist in detecting diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and macular degeneration.
