LASIK

LASIK is a laser vision correction eye surgery to correct conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.  These conditions cause images to be blurry and lack sharp, clear definition as a result of a malformation of the cornea, or the front of the eye.  The procedure improves visual clarity.

LASIK is performed on an outpatient basis and offers patients benefits such as reduced pain, shorter recovery time and is an alternative to glasses or contact lenses.

Are you a candidate?  If you are over the age of 18 and have healthy corneas and a stable corrective prescription you are the ideal candidate for LASIK.

It is important for you to understand the risks and rewards from LASIK.  Dr. Dan Langley will be happy to answer any questions and address any concerns you may have during a complimentary LASIK screening.


 

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of disorders that damage the optic nerve, gradually stealing sight without warning.  In the early stages of the disease, there may be no symptoms.  However, a comprehensive eye exam can detect glaucoma.  Medical experts estimate that half of the people affected by glaucoma may not even know they have the disease.  There is no cure for glaucoma, however, early detection and treatment with medication or surgery can slow or prevent futher vision loss and progression.

People at risk should have eye exams at least once a year.  Those at risk include:

  • African Americans over age 40
  • People over age 60, especially Mexican Americans
  • People with a family history of glaucoma

EyeCare Associates is one of the few medical clinics in Oklahoma that utlize the SLT which isSelective Laser Trabeculoplasty.  The SLT is a laser that helps in the drainage part of the eye.  It uses light to help the body clean up the pigment cells and debris, lowering the pressure on the eye.  The SLT is becoming the new way to treat glaucoma.  It provides a viable option to medications, which can have side effects.


 

Diabetic Eye Exams

If you are a diabetic you should see your eye care professional at least once a year for a dilated eye exam.  Having your regular doctor look at your eyes is not enough, nor is having your eyeglass prescription tested by an optician.

Only optometrists and ophthalmologists can detect the signs of retinopathy and only ophthalmologists can treat retinopathy.

We care about you and the health of your eyes.  Decisions about your eyes are too important not to be educated decisions.  Let us help you get the information you need to make an informed decision.

Annual Diabetic Eye Exams are necessary if:

  • You are between the age of 10 and 29 and have had diabetes for at least 5 years
  • You are diabetic and 30 years old or older
  • You are diabetic and have recognized changes in your vision
  • You are diabetic and pregnant or planning to become pregnant


Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is the weakening or changes in the small blood vessels, due to diabetes, that nourish the eye’s light sensitive retina.  Diabetic retinopathy can seriously affect vision.  If left untreated, it can cause blindness.  Diabetic retinopathy is estimated to be the most frequent cause of new cases of blindness among adults 20 to 60 years of age.

EyeCare Associates uses a fundus camera to detect diabetic retinopathy.  A fundus camera is a specialized low power microscope with an attached camera.  It is designed to photograph the interior surface of the eye, making it an effective tool to diagnose and treat diabetic retinopathy.  The doctors at EyeCare Associates also use a fundus camera to record and monitor the condition of the eye structure, which in turn can help diagnose the presence of disorders.

We care about you and the health of your eyes.  Decisions about your eyes are too important not to be educated decisions.  Let us help you get the information you need to make an informed decision.


 


Cataracts

A cataract is the clouding of the natural lens. The lens is the part of the eye responsible for focusing light and producing clear, sharp images.  If a patient complains of foggy vision, the doctors will test for cataracts.  They can repair cataracts by surgically replacing the natural lens with an artificial lens inside the eye.  EyeCare Associates offers patients the latest multi-focal intraocular lens implants (IOL), which are sometimes used in cataract surgery.

Multifocal Intraocular Lenses

Benefits of Multifocal Intraocular Lenses

  • The most advanced lenses in 25 years
  • Allows patients to see both up close and far away
  • Eliminates the need for glasses in most patients
  • Often your IOL surgery is covered by Medicare or your insurance provider, please contact EyeCare Associates today to find out if you qualify

 

Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a common eye disease that causes the deterioration of the macula, which, in turn, results in the development of blind spots and blurred or distorted vision.  When the macula becomes damaged, many daily activities such as driving and reading become increasingly difficult.  To learn more about the Macular Degeneration eye test, click here.

Keratoconus

A non-inflamatory distortion of the cornea, which is associated with a reduction in visual acuity which is the accuracy of the eye to focus.  Corneal scarring can occur in more advanced cases along with further reduction of visual acuity.


 

Intacs®

Intacs are two plastic segments that are inserted within the non-seeing periphery of the cornea.  Intacs reshape the curvature of the cornea from within, enhancing the natural shape of the eye to correct mild nearsightedness.  Intacs can be removed or exchanged for different sized segments, and maintain a more natural corneal shape which may provide better vision that LASIK.

Benefits of Intacs for the treatment of keratoconus:

  • An outpatient procedure that only takes about 10 minutes
  • Improved quality of vision
  • Can be removed or exchanged
  • Less invasive than a corneal transplant
  • May delay progression of keratoconus

Not everyone with keratoconus will be a candidate for the Intacs procedure.  Contact EyeCare Associates to schedule your evaluation.


 

Technology Available for Disease Diagnosis

EyeCare Associates utilizes the latest technology to diagnose diseases of the eye, including:

OCT

Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a state-of-the-art diagnostic technology that provides direct, real-time, cross sectional images of the retina.  The OCT scans an infrared red light across the retina, which generates a cross sectional image of the tissues in great detail.  The test is quick, requires no dilation, and enables the doctor to view and accurately measure structural changes in the retina. T he high-resolution images produced by OCT allow for early diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of conditions, including glaucoma, macular edema, macular hole, and age-related macular degeneration.

 

HVF

The Humphrey Visual Field (HVF) analyzer is a sophisticated instrument used to provide a computerized measure of peripheral vision.  The analyzer can detect visual field defects before they become symptomatic.  The HVF is an essential tool in the detection and management of a variety of eye and central nervous system diseases, including glaucoma, stroke, and brain tumors.


 

Dry Eye

When you blink, a film of tears spreads over the eye, making the surface of the eye smooth and clear. Without this tear film, good vision would not be possible.

Sometimes people don’t produce enough tears or the right quality of tears to keep their eyes healthy and comfortable. This condition is known as dry eye.

The tear film consists of three layers:

  • An oily layer;
  • A watery layer;
  • A layer of mucus.

 


 

Retinal Detachment

A retinal tear or a detached retina is repaired with a surgical procedure. Based on your specific condition, your ophthalmologist will discuss the type of procedure recommended and will tell you about the various risks and benefits of your treatment options.

Most retinal tears need to be treated by sealing the retina to the back wall of the eye with laser surgery or cryotherapy (a freezing treatment). Both of these procedures create a scar that helps seal the retina to the back of the eye. This prevents fluid from traveling through the tear and under the retina, which usually prevents the retina from detaching. These treatments cause little or no discomfort and may be performed in your ophthalmologist’s office.

Laser surgery (photocoagulation)
With laser surgery, your ophthalmologist uses a laser to make small burns around the retinal tear. The scarring that results seals the retina to the underlying tissue, helping to prevent a retinal detachment.

Freezing treatment (cryopexy)
Your eye surgeon uses a special freezing probe to apply intense cold and freeze the retina around the retinal tear. The result is a scar that helps secure the retina to the eye wall.
