Here at Glaucoma Consultants of St. Louis, we know that surgery is a serious matter, but it’s also often the best or even only solution for the treatment of eye disease so that you can have optimal vision and ocular health restored. Fortunately, the options we offer are safe, have a high rate of success, and are performed by our eye surgery specialist, so you can be confident of the best possible outcomes.
Cataracts does not cause any physical deterioration of your eyes or damage, but what it does do is rob you of your clear and sharp vision. Protein deposits grow on your eye lenses, increasing in both quantity and size over time. And while eyeglasses or contact lenses are sufficient to counteract the effects of this eye disease initially, and even for a long time after diagnosis, you will likely reach a point where you are no longer satisfied with what they can provide. You might even find that your vision has been compromised so badly from cataracts that you have no other choice than our Chesterfield eye surgery. Glaucoma, on the other hand, can harm your optic nerve, ultimately result in blindness, and can even be life-threatening. Like with cataracts, there is an alternative to our Chesterfield eye surgery, which is the application of special eye drops. Unfortunately, they don’t work well for everyone, and even if they do, they require daily use for life. With both cataracts and glaucoma procedures, the advancements that have been made over the years should have you feeling confident in your long term eye wellness and improved vision.
