Three Ways Surgery Can Improve Vision in Maryland

Submitted by Elman Retina Group on November 27, 2017

Here at Elman Retina Group, Dr. Elman will evaluate and treat your retinal problems working in consultation and in partnership with your referring doctor. If you have vision problems, it’s crucial you get help correcting them as soon as possible. That way, you can return to a life you love as quickly as possible.

Still not certain if eye surgery is really the best call for you? Here are three ways it can help.

  1. Eye Surgery Can Sharpen Eyesight: Many different conditions can make eyesight dim, blurry, foggy or dark. Eye surgery can replace a number of eye structures, such as the lens, to restore clear eyesight.
  2. Eye Surgery Can Reduce Intraocular Pressure: Intraocular pressure is serious, and can result in impingement of the optic nerve and eventually blindness, as is the case with glaucoma. Draining extra fluid or putting in a shunt for ongoing drainage is possible with surgery.
  3. Eye Surgery Can Correct Dry Eyes: Eyes whose drainage channels do not work effectively may cause dry, red, itchy eyes all the time. Surgery can block those channels to allow you to hold on to your tears.

Naturally, this is but a short list of the ways that surgery can improve vision, but these are some of the most important services our ophthalmologist here at Elman Retina Group can help you.
