A cataract is a change in the clarity, or a "clouding" of the lens in your eye. Your crystalline lens, which is made mostly of protein and water, can become clouded enough to prevent light and images from reaching the retina. A cataract can be the reason sharp images become blurred and seeing things at night become more difficult. More than half of all Americans age 65 and older have a cataract.
Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery
This procedure, created for the treatment of eyelid conditions, the most common of which are ptosis (upper eyelid drooping) and dermatocholasis (excess eyelid skin), can be performed on an outpatient basis here in the Eye Surgery Center of St. Augustine. These procedures not only enhance a patient’s cosmetic appearance, but help restore visual function as well.
Dr. Paul Hund and Dr. Todd Thompson, both Board Certified Ophthalmologists, have extensive training and experience in the treatment of many eyelid conditions.
I'd like to thank Dr. Hund and his staff at the Eye Center of St. Augustine for a job well done! My eye lid surgery was a great success. Not only do my eyes look 10 years younger, but my vision has improved dramatically. The surgical procedure was painless and the recovery time was minimal. The courteous and professional care from Dr. Hund and his staff at The Eye Center made my eye surgery a very satisfying and rewarding experience.
The physicians at the Eye Center of St. Augustine use laser surgery as a means to treat eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears, or retinal vein occlusions, as well as a treatment for secondary cataract.
