lasik® eye surgery.

Close up of a female eye, macro shot.

LASIK or Lasik (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), commonly referred to as laser eye surgery or laser vision correction, is a type of refractive surgery for the correction of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. The LASIK surgery is performed by an ophthalmologist who uses a laser or microkeratome to reshape the eye’s cornea in order to improve visual acuity. For most patients, LASIK provides a permanent alternative to eyeglasses or contact lenses.

LASIK is most similar to another surgical corrective procedure, photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), and both represent advances over radial keratotomy in the surgical treatment of refractive errors of vision. For patients with moderate to high myopia or thin corneas which cannot be treated with LASIK and PRK, the phakic intraocular lens is an alternative. As of 2011, over 11 million LASIK procedures had been performed in the United States and as of 2009 over 28 million have been performed worldwide.

low vision eye care.

Individuals who continue to have decreased vision after attempting to correct it with eyeglasses or contact lenses are considered to have “low vision”. There are many diseases that cause loss of vision. Some of the most common include:

• Macular degeneration
• Glaucoma
• Diabetic retinopathy
• Corneal Dystrophy

Some types of vision loss can be improved by the use of low vision aids such as:

• Magnifiers
• Spectacle mounted telescopes
• High intensity lighting
• Pocket size telescopes
• Electronic devices

care for children.

If your child has not had a comprehensive eye examination, the best time is now! Studies show that 86% of students start the school year without ever having had an eye examination. This statistic is shocking considering how important vision is in the classroom! The facts below may help put the importance of these examinations into perspective:

80% of learning comes through your child’s eyes. Studies indicate that 60% of “problem learners” actually suffer from undetected vision problems and, in some cases, have been misdiagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hypersensitivity disorder (ADHD). The medications used to treat these conditions can often exacerbate the eye conditions associated with them, causing visual concentration to be even more taxing.

One in four students has a visual impairment. If a child has gone through development without seeing clearly, then the likelihood of that child actually explaining to a parent or teacher that the world is “blurry” or “double” is very low. The child may not know that he or she is seeing poorly.

Amblyopia is the leading cause of vision loss in the United States, and it is generally preventable if caught at a young age. Amblyopia is the medical term for a “lazy eye”. It most frequently occurs due to a lack of use of one or both of the eyes from an uncorrected eyeglass prescription or misalignment of an eye.

School vision screenings are a great way to flag children with sight-threatening conditions, but a screening is not sensitive enough to prompt referral for all learning related visual conditions. Makar Eyecare recommends your child’s first eye examination take place between six and ten months of age.

On your first office visit we recommend you to bring the following:

• Eyeglasses and/or contact lenses
• List of current medications
• Sunglasses for afterwards
• Previous records or prescriptions
• Most current insurance cards

Makar Eyecare takes pride in providing every patient a thorough eye health and vision examination.Preliminary tests will evaluate your pupils, intraocular eye pressures, visual fields, eye muscles, color vision, stereopsis or depth perception, binocularity, curvature of the cornea and the power of your eye.

exam preparation.

Your doctor will test your natural vision and determine your best corrected visual acuity at near and far distances. Our providers take time to ask the proper questions required to ensure an accurate spectacle and contact lens prescription.

Your doctor will usually recommend to have your pupils dilated during your examination. If so, dilation eye drops may be placed in your eyes to temporarily enlarge your pupils. The purpose of dilation is to get a clear view of the optic nerve and retina in the back of your eye. This aids in early detection and treatment of eye diseases that can destroy your vision, such as cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration.

Vision Therapy.

Close up portrait of Girl reviewing eye sight closing eye with hand.Test chart in background.

Let’s face it. Our eyes are at the center of everything that we do. From the moment we wake up in
the morning, we use them to move in our space and complete daily tasks. In some cases, even
though the eyes see 20/20, their function can be limited due to less accurate eye movements
or eye teaming skills. Whether you think your eyes may be functioning poorly or you are interested
in a sport or activity that requires supreme visual function, vision therapy may be for you.

Studies are showing vision therapy’s capacity to improve reading speed and comprehension.
In addition, some of the most prestigious sport camps and training programs in the world are
incorporating vision therapy into their routine to improve their athlete’s progression. Vision therapy
for diagnosed ocular conditions has also been shown to improve acuity, depth perception, and eye alignment.

Vision therapy is a sequence of neurosensory and neuromuscular activities individually prescribed and monitored by the doctor to develop, rehabilitate and enhance visual skills and processing. The vision therapy program is based on the results of a comprehensive eye examination and takes into consideration the results of standardized tests, the needs of the patients, and the patient’s signs and symptoms. The length of the therapy program varies depending on the severity of a diagnosed condition or the preciseness required for a particular sport or activity. Activities paralleling in-office techniques are taught to the patient to be practiced at home.

Makar Eyecare performs vision therapy and the evaluations necessary to track ocular improvements. If you or someone you know is interested, schedule an appointment with Dr. Elizabeth J. Lane.
