At Prestera Eye Medical Group, our sole priority is the health of our patients and the quality of care that we can provide for them. There are a variety of circumstances individuals may endure in their lifetime that can lead to declining eyesight. At our practice, our trained professionals can treat patients with cataracts, glaucoma, defects within their retina, issues with their cornea, eyelid growths, and more.

Cataracts and glaucoma commonly develop as people age. In order to treat these vision-impairing conditions, patients must first be diagnosed by a trained professional. In order to be diagnosed with one of these ailments, it is extremely important for patients to keep up with routine eye exams and check-ups. With a condition such as glaucoma, symptoms are hard to identify until permanent damage has occured to your eyes and cannot be reversed. Going through regular eye exams with a trained eye doctor can increase the likelihood of the early detection of serious problems and reduce the risks of significant damage that can be caused to your eyes.

When addressing these conditions, our team utilizes a variety of treatments and advanced technologies to increase the overall success rates, the speed of recovery, and the rapidness of the procedure. For example, to enhance and restore your vision, cataracts can be remedied by removing the clouded lens and replacing it with a specialized intraocular lens. Additionally, glaucoma can usually be treated by using an innovative laser surgery that can preserve your vision and prevent further damage. Ultimately, the best way to care for your aging eyes is to routinely visit your eye doctor to monitor your vision.
