Why See an Ophthalmologist?
An ophthalmologist is a high-trained eye specialist. To achieve board-certification requires four years of added training beyond becoming an MD. An ophthalmologist treats eye conditions, diseases, and vision problems, including glaucoma and dry eye, with treatments to prevent eye conditions from advancing, and performs LASIK and laser eye surgery. At Y.E.S., our Weston eye doctors are dedicated to helping patients throughout Weston and the surrounding communities to keep their eyes healthy and vision clear.
LASIK Surgery – What is It?
LASIK surgery is an advanced vision correction procedure performed with a laser system. If you must wear contacts or glasses to see clearly, you have the option of correcting your vision with LASIK. The word itself comes from a medical term, “laser in situ keratomileusis.” Keratomileusis is the surgical reshaping of the eye’s cornea, the transparent layer at the front of the eyeball. When this layer is misshapen, the light entering the eye cannot be focused correctly on the retina at the back of the eye structure – where visual messages travel through the optic nerve to the brain. With this fast, effective, and painless procedure, your eye shape can be corrected for sharper, more accurate vision. LASIK surgery in Weston at Y.E.S. treats nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, three of the most common eye conditions.
How Does LASIK Work?
The procedure is termed “refractive surgery,” as it is correcting how the light enters your eye by reshaping the cornea. No two people have eyes that are exactly the same. At Y.E.S. we employ an advanced digital eye-mapping system for a higher level of accuracy in LASIK. LASIK works with a state-of-the-art laser tool that in the hands of our skilled eye surgeons, accurately reshapes the cornea. LASIK has been used broadly since the 1980’s, but the technology continues to develop. At Y.E.S., we use an advanced “bladeless” laser system to perform LASIK, as it is gentler on the eye structure, for better results and faster healing.
What is LASIK Surgery Like for the Patient?
LASIK is a painless procedure. If you hope to be free of glasses or contacts, are 18 years old or more, and have had a stable prescription for at least a year and are not currently dealing with eye conditions such as glaucoma or cataracts, this vision correction procedure could be right for you.
During your LASIK surgery in Weston, you will not experience pain. Your eyes will be numbed with anesthetic eye drops prior to treatment, and relaxing medication administered. You will be in our modern surgery suite for the procedure. You will be asked to look at a light during the procedure, and may feel slight pressure, but no pain. Our eye surgeon, with the help of a digital 3D map of your eye, will reshape your cornea in about five minutes per eye.
Does LASIK get Good Results?
LASIK surgery is one of the most popular of all eye surgeries performed in America. The results, when the procedure is performed correctly, are excellent. Most patients can achieve 20/20 vision or better. Some older patients may still need to wear reading glasses, but many no longer require glasses or contacts to see clearly. The results of this advanced treatment are very rewarding. The recovery is fast, the treatment painless, and your vision is corrected almost immediately.

What are Cataracts?
Cataracts refers to the lens of the eye becoming cloudy. This comes about due to aging, although some younger people can develop cataracts as well. The lens, when healthy, is clear. Over time, the proteins that make up the delicate structure can begin to clump, and light is diffused. This condition should be treated as if left to advance, cataracts can lead to blindness.
What is Laser Cataract Surgery?
Cataract surgery is the process by which the cloudy natural lens is removed and then replaced with a synthetic lens. This is a very delicate surgical procedure, requiring high-level surgical skills, technology, and technique. At Y.E.S. in Weston, we are known as one of the premier eye clinics in Florida, offering the most advanced systems for cataract surgery in Weston, FL.
During the procedure, our eye specialist will create a small incision through which the damaged lens can be accessed. It is held in place in a tiny capsule structure behind the colored part of your eye (iris). Once the damaged lens is accessed, it is broken apart with the laser and extracted. A synthetic lens is then placed within the capsule and the incision gently closed.
What is it Like to Undergo Laser Cataract Surgery?
The surgery is not painful or difficult to experience. One eye is corrected at a time, with about a month between surgeries. Your eye will be numbed, and relaxing medication administered. Most patients remember very little of the procedure. The laser system emits sounds, and some patients recall bursts of light or other visual experiences. Once your cataract surgery in Weston is complete, you will rest for a few minutes, after which you can return home.
You will have several types of eye drops to ward off infection and speed healing. Your vision won’t be clear immediately, as your eye is still numb, but as the hours pass, it will clear up. Most of our patients are thrilled to see colors once again bright, and vision clear and unhindered by cloudy areas.
