Vision problems can often be corrected with eyeglasses contact lenses or even medications. However, there are certain circumstances in which those methods are ineffective. In certain cases, Niles eye surgery would be the best option and possible the only viable option to treat certain vision problems, eye diseases and conditions.
There are many different types of eye surgeries available for various vision problems, eye diseases and conditions. The surgery options depend upon the type of problem a patient is experiencing as well as the severity of it. Some eye surgeries are performed to correct vision problems as an alternative to wearing corrective lenses such as eye glasses or contact lenses. Some examples of refractive eye surgeries that are used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism are Lasik, Laser eye surgery and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). Other types of eye surgeries are performed to treat or to manage an eye disease or condition. Some examples of eye diseases and conditions in which Niles eye surgery is often performed include: cataract, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration. Cataract surgery is performed to safely remove cataracts that cloud one’s vision. Glaucoma surgery unfortunately cannot reverse vision loss but is performed to manage the condition by reducing intraocular pressure when medication isn’t sufficient. Surgery is a common treatment option for diabetic retinopathy, which is a condition that can lead to blindness in diabetic patients due to damaged blood vessels. While there is no cure for macular degeneration, which gradually and increasingly blurs one’s vision; surgery is one of the treatment options used to manage the disease.
