At Y.E.S., our team of skilled eye doctors and ophthalmologists in Jupiter can help you resolve vision problems, eye conditions, and illnesses. We offer the most advanced treatments available in our state-of-the-art eye clinic in Jupiter, including LASIK and laser eye surgery.
Why See an Ophthalmologist?
An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who has advanced his or her training to become a board-certified eye specialist. While an optometrist can provide you with the glasses or contacts you need, an ophthalmologist can perform eye surgeries and treat conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, and in performing LASIK surgery.
What is LASIK Surgery?
LASIK surgery is one of the most commonly-performed eye surgeries, in use since the 1980’s, with newer, better methods developed since that time. The procedure involves reshaping the cornea, the clear portion at the front of the eye. When the cornea is misshapen, it leads to faulty vision and the need to wear glasses or contacts. At Y.E.S., we ensure our patients get some of the best LASIK surgery Jupiter, FL has to offer, with the most advanced system: a bladeless laser technology known to produce a better outcome and faster healing.
What is the LASIK Procedure?
LASIK is a customized procedure that reshapes the cornea for vision correction. The procedure involves the use of a state-of-the-art laser system to reshape the cornea, guided by information from digital eye mapping. It treats nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Imagine not needing to worry about glasses or contacts, and having 20/20 vision, or better. Our Jupiter LASIK surgery consistently achieves these results.
What Does LASIK Feel Like? Is it Painful?
LASIK surgery does not involve pain. At Y.E.S., we used an advanced surgical tool known as a microkeratome or femtosecond laser to create a circular incision in the cornea. The incision is then folded back for access to the tissue of the cornea for reshaping and vision correction. The entire procedure requires very little time, with immediate results in improved vision. Your eyes will be numbed with anesthetic drops prior to the procedure. While it will feel odd to have your eye worked on, there is little, if any, discomfort in the procedure. Your cornea will be reshaped by our specialized laser, guided by a 3D image of your eye for fully customized, accurate results.
Results of LASIK
The results of LASIK can be life-changing. Imagine never wearing glasses or contacts again, with 20/20 vision. The majority of patients achieve a dramatic improvement in vision with LASIK. The procedure is fast and painless, requires little attention to recovery (although you will be using prescription eye drops and will have to be careful with your eyes), and you will finally be able to read, drive, watch TV, movies, and interact with others without the barrier of glasses or contacts.
All About Cataracts
When the lens within the eye structure gets older, or has been traumatized, it begins to become cloudy. As the condition advances, the cloudy lens affects vision, with colors looking dull and vision blurred. Whole sections of your vision may be clouded. This is a dangerous situation from the perspective of eye health, as if the lens is not removed, it will harden and become thicker, leading to inflammation and the potential for blindness. If you notice your vision is becoming cloudy and less crisp, it is important that you have your condition evaluated by our skilled cataract surgeon in Jupiter.
What is Laser Cataract Surgery?
Cataract surgery has advanced in recent years. At Y.E.S., we offer a state-of-the-art laser system for this procedure, called the LenSx Laser. It is a newer, better method for cataract surgery, producing superior results with less risk of swelling or inflammation. No two patients are alike, and every person has a unique eye structure and cataract problems. The surgery involves a digital mapping of the eye prior to the procedure for better accuracy in lens replacement. The damaged lens is broken up with the laser, and then gently extracted, after which a synthetic lens is placed within the capsule that held the original lens. The procedure is complete. Only one eye is treated in a surgery, with four weeks between.
What Does Cataract Surgery Feel Like? Is it Painful?
Cataract surgery in Jupiter, FL at Y.E.S. is performed with cutting-edge technology and involves no pain or discomfort. Your eye will be numbed with anesthetic drops, and relaxing medication administered. You will be lying on the treatment table for the procedure. Your head will be secured to restrict movement, and the procedure will begin. While you won’t feel any pain, and may not even remember much about the procedure, it is not painful. The laser system emits a strange sound, and it may appear that lights are flashing. Once the new lens is inserted and the incision gently closed, your surgery is complete.
What Results Can I Expect?
If a traditional interocular lens is used, while you will have extremely clear vision, you may still need glasses. If you choose to have state-of-the-art, multi-focus lenses, you will no longer need glasses or contacts. Our patients are thrilled with the results of cataract surgery, free from cloudy, blurred vision, with the world bright and full of color once again.
