Surgical Co-Management

LASIK

Dr. Teigen and Dr. Hardan have extensive experience in the pre-operative evaluation and post-operative care of LASIK, PRK and I-LASIK vision correction. By far LASIK is currently the most popular vision-correcting or “refractive” surgery available, but there are other options as well. We will help you find the ideal solution to your vision problems and partner with the best surgeon to perform your procedure.

 

IMPLANTABLE CONTACT LENSES (ICLS)

Dr. Teigen and Dr. Hardan co-manage implantable contact lenses (ICLs) for severe near- or far-sightedness. These premium lenses are a surgical way to eliminate the need for glasses when LASIK and PRK are not an option. Schedule an appointment today to see if you are a good candidate for this advanced technology.

 

CATARACTS

A cataract is a clouding of the internal lens of the eye. As the lens becomes cloudier, vision becomes blurry and distorted. Decreased visual clarity, ghosting, and difficulty with glare are common symptoms of a cataract condition. Risk factors for developing cataracts are:

  • Aging
  • Diabetes
  • Medications
  • Eye trauma and surgeries
  • Smoking
  • Unprotected excessive sunlight exposure

Most people will have a slight cataract in one or both eyes by age 60. Most cataracts progress slowly over 5-15 years. As vision impairment increases, doctors become worried about the safety aspect of day to day activities, such as driving a car. An annual eye exam is recommended to measure eyesight and to evaluate overall eye health. Impressive technologies in cataract procedures allow the surgeon to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with a lens implant that is calculated to provide optimum vision.

How does EyeDentity Eyecare + Eyewear play a role in your cataract surgery?

Once we have determined that your cataract is advanced enough for surgery, our doctors will perform the initial testing that is required by your surgeon. We will then initiate a referral and set up a consultation appointment on your behalf. Once you have had you cataract surgery Dr. Teigen or Dr. Hardan will see you for all of your post-operative care. When you have completed your post-operative care, it may be necessary for you to have prescription glasses to obtain your best corrected vision. If a new prescription is deemed necessary, we offer a full optical department with knowledgeable staff to assist you with your prescription lens options.
