Cataracts

We diagnose cataracts and make treatment recommendations, which may involve surgery. Intraocular lens implant surgery is a delicate, yet safe, outpatient procedure that replaces a clouded lens inside the eye with a permanent lens. Using A-scan ultrasound and the IOL Master, Dr. Wilson-Umanzor ensures the cataract implant is a correct fit. ...

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty

Selective laser trabeculoplasty, or SLT, is an FDA-approved laser procedure for the treatment of open-angle glaucoma. SLT is an advanced treatment option that lowers eye pressure and increases fluid drainage. It is minimally-invasive and uses low levels of energy to selectively pinpoint the areas of the trabecular meshwork, relieving the symptoms of glaucoma. If needed, the procedure can be repeated several times without causing damage to surrounding tissue. ...

YAG Posterior Capsulotomy

YAG posterior capsulotomy is a minimally invasive procedure performed to correct the most common complication of cataract surgery called posterior capsular opacification or PCO. When this complication occurs, the patient experiences a recurrence of the visual difficulties that precipitated the original cataract surgery. ...

Trabeculectomy

Trabeculectomy, also known as glaucoma filter surgery, is a surgical procedure that removes part of the trabecular meshwork of the eye in order to increase the drainage of fluid. A trabeculectomy is one of the most common surgical procedures used to treat open-angle and chronic closed-angle glaucoma. A new drainage passage is created during the procedure by cutting a small hole in the sclera (the white part of the eye) and creating a collection pouch between the sclera and conjunctiva (the outer covering of the eye). This serves to create a system for bypassing the adrainage channels and encourages fluid drainage and reduces eye pressure. ...

Laser Peripheral Iridotomy

Laser peripheral iridotomy, also known as LPI, is a laser procedure used to lower eye pressure in patients with narrow-angle glaucoma. Narrow-angle glaucoma is a condition that occurs when the angle between the iris and the cornea in the eye is too small, resulting in a blockage of fluid in the drainage channel of the eye. Using a laser, a small hole is made in the iris to increase the angle between the iris and cornea allowing fluid to drain from the eye. ...
