Dr. Davies and his staff provide comprehensive eye care to patients of all ages. Our services include not only small-incision cataract surgery and laser vision correction but also treatments for a range of conditions such as glaucoma, the diabetic eye, dry eye and macular degeneration.
Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining your eyes’ health by detecting and preventing disease. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss. Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options.
Its important that our patients receive only the best treatment options available to correct or improve their vision quality. Below are the surgical procedures performed by Dr. Davies. We encourage you to study your options and sit down with Dr. Davies to see if you may be a candidate for one of our vision correction procedures.
Cataracts take many years to develop and do not usually cause problems in their earliest stages. Cataracts is a common condition caused by the natural aging of the eye. As the lens ages, it stiffens and clouds causing blurred images and distorted colors. It usually begins around age 50 and progresses slowly.
ECP ( Endoscopic Cyclophotocoagulation) is a procedure that reduces the amount of fluid produced in the eye which reduces the pressure inside the eye. This treatment helps patients who suffer from Glaucoma, a condition where excess fluid puts pressure on the optic nerve causing damaged vision.
Astigmatism can be corrected with refractive surgery techniques that selectively reshape portions of an irregular cornea to make it smooth and symmetrical. The result is that images focus clearly on the retina rather than being distorted due to light scattering through an irregularly shaped cornea.
Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis or LASIK is a popular laser vision procedure that is performed in two steps. In the first step, a corneal flap is created using a microkeratome or a laser. In the second step, an advanced laser reshapes the cornea. LASIK is used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
There is as yet no outright cure for age-related macular degeneration, but some treatments may delay its progression or even improve vision. Treatments for macular degeneration depend on whether the disease is in its early-stage, dry form or in the more advanced, wet form that can lead to serious vision loss.
