Wake up to a Better Day with our Eye Surgery
Not everyone is born with 20/20 vision. Some patients may be born with poor eye sight, many experience vision impairment as they age, and others may suffer from damage or disease that can lead to impaired vision. We offer a variety of eye surgery treatments at our Austin practice to help patients with a range of needs achieve the clear, dependable vision they deserve. If you are suffering with compromised vision, please contact us today to schedule a consultation.
The cornea refracts light entering the eyes. In order for vision to be clear, the corneas must be clear and healthy. If the cornea has been damaged, scarred, or diseased, the light that enters the eye will be distorted, which is likely to cause glare and blurred vision. If this vision impairment cannot be corrected with glasses or contacts, or if the damage causes pain or discomfort, a corneal transplant may be the best option. Corneal transplants allow us to remove damaged or diseased corneal tissue, and replace it with healthy donor tissue. During a corneal transplant, a circular incision is made to remove the damaged or diseased tissue. The donor tissue is then put in place and attached with sutures. Vision is likely to be blurry for the first few weeks following corneal transplant surgery. However, once the eye has recovered and the donor tissue has been accepted, patients can experience restored vision, reduced pain, and improved aesthetics of the cornea.Learn More About Corneal Transplants
A pterygium is a non-cancerous lesion that develops on the white of the eye. This condition, which is more common in patients who spend a lot of time outdoors, is usually harmless. In many cases, the pterygium is relatively small, and does not require treatment. However, in some patients, the pterygium grows into the cornea, or grows to the point that it begins to cover the pupil. In these cases, the pterygium will interfere with vision, and will likely require surgical removal. During pterygium removal surgery, the pterygium is removed and amniotic membrane grafting is performed to replace the tissue. This is one of the latest techniques available, and benefits patients because it does not require any sutures, resulting in decreased pain and a quicker recovery.Learn More About Pterygium Removal Surgery
Intraocular lenses, or IOLs, are used to replace a clouded crystalline lens following cataract surgery. There are several types of intraocular lenses. At Broberg Eye Care we offer monofocal lenses, multifocal lenses, and toric lenses. The type of lens used will be determined by the vision needs of each patient. To learn more about IOLs and how they can improve vision following cataract surgery, please visit our intraocular lenses page.Learn More About Intraocular Lenses
