5 Reasons You Should Have LASIK Before Summer

April 27th, 2017

Spring is finally here, the weather is starting to warm up, and many people are starting to eagerly anticipate summer and long days spent at the pool. And if you are someone who has poor vision, there has never been a better time to consider LASIK surgery.

Imagine being free to go swimming, take a vacation, and do all the summer activities you enjoy without worrying about your glasses, contacts, or prescription sunglasses.

If you want to make this the best summer yet, you should consider having LASIK surgery before the warm weather hits. If you are still on the fence, here are five reasons you should have LASIK before summer:

  1.     Outdoor activities

If you have LASIK you will be free to enjoy all your favorite summer outdoor activities, including surfing, kayaking, sailing, and many other fun outdoor sports. LASIK will save you from the hassle of worrying about accidentally losing your glasses or having a contact fall out.

  1.     Swimming

Let’s be honest, going swimming is just less enjoyable when you wear glasses or contacts. You can’t wear your contacts underwater in the pool but if you take them out you can barely see anything! LASIK will allow you to ditch your contacts and swim with perfect vision.

  1.     Vacation

This year you can enjoy your family vacation without needing to remember to pack your contacts and glasses. And there will be no stressing about last minute trips to the store because you forgot to pack contact solution either!

  1.     Reading

Imagine yourself reading by the pool without having to find your glasses first. And you don’t have to worry about getting dry eyes or a headache from your contacts.

  1.     Ditch your prescription sunglasses

When you have LASIK surgery, you don’t have to worry about having prescription sunglasses anymore. Now you have your choice of wearing any kind of sunglasses you like.

Most people choose to have LASIK surgery because it gives you the freedom to live their life without the hassle of worrying about contacts or glasses. The majority of patients who have the surgery are overwhelming glad that they did and feel it was more than worth it. If you want to learn more about LASIK and whether it could be the right choice for you, schedule an appointment at our Newport Beach office.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Cataracts

April 18th, 2017

A cataract forms when the lens of the eye becomes clouded and begins to impair your vision. Cataracts are an age-related condition that commonly affect people over the age of 60. By the age of 80, more than half of all Americans have developed a cataract in one or both eyes.

It is important to know the warning signs of cataracts, so if there is a problem you can detect it early on. Beginning treatment early for cataracts is important for preserving the long-term health of your eyes. Here are five facts that you might not know about cataracts:

  1.     Cataracts can’t be prevented

There are certain lifestyle choices you can take to help minimize your risk of developing cataracts. You should avoid smoking, limit the amount of alcohol you drink, and live an active, healthy lifestyle. However, there is no way you can completely prevent cataracts from forming.

  1.     There are different types of cataracts

There are different types of cataracts based on how they form in the eye. The main types of cataracts are cortical, nuclear sclerotic and posterior subcapsular. Nuclear sclerotic cataracts form in the nucleus of the lens while posterior subcapsular cataracts form in the back of the lens. And cortical cataracts will form in the back of the lens and work their way to the front.

  1.     Cataracts can’t spread from one eye to the other

Cataracts are not contagious and they cannot spread from one eye to the other. You can develop cataracts in one or both eyes and this can happen simultaneously or at different times.

  1.     Cataracts affect people of all ages

While cataracts affect the elderly more often, people of all ages can develop cataracts. Roughly one in 10,000 babies is born with cataracts every year.

  1.     Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness worldwide

Cataracts affect roughly 20 million people worldwide, making this condition the leading cause of blindness. Cataracts are responsible for 51 percent of blindness in the world.
