The Talk:
In the 1950s, intraocular lenses became among the most important discoveries in modern medicine. In the 1990s, lasers evolved to reduce dependence on glasses. The combination of refinements of these 2 big discoveries have changed our current approaches to eye surgery. The talk will clarify the different kinds of ailments you might get in your eyesight and how modern (and recent) technologies can treat such ailments:

  • When and how often you should get an eye exam.
  • How your eyes work for far and for near.
  • What the different options in glasses or contact lenses are.
  • Whether you are a candidate for laser vision correction or lens extraction or not.
  • More about advanced options and technologies.
