Title: What Can Happen
to Your Eyesight and what Can You Do about it?
Speaker:Dr. Nada Jabbur (AUBMC and CMC)
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
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.
