Age-Related Macular Degeneration, Wet Type

This disease causes vision loss. It affects the center of your visual field. Of the two types of AMD, it is the more advanced type. It usually affects both eyes, but in some people only one eye is affected. This type of degeneration is an abnormal buildup of fluid beneath the macula. The macula is part of the light-sensitive retina tissue that sees fine details in the center of your visual field.

Glaucoma (Primary Open Angle)

This disorder damages the optic nerve at the rear of the eye, causing loss of vision. It can progress so gradually that the person doesn't notice until significant damage has occurred.

Retinal Detachment

This is a pulling away of the retina from the inner surface of your eye. It severely impairs your vision. Without proper treatment, this vision loss can become permanent.

Cataract Removal (Phacoemulsification Method)

This surgery is used to remove a cataract. During the procedure, the cloudy lens in your eye is replaced with an artificial lens that will let you see clearly. This procedure is sometimes called "no-needle, no-stitch" cataract surgery. It's quick, painless, and you can go home the same day.

Focal Laser Photocoagulation

This outpatient procedure is designed to seal leaking capillaries beneath the retina. It is used for leaks that occur outside the macula (the center of the visual field).

Glaucoma Laser Treatment: ALT

This outpatient procedure is designed to reduce excess fluid pressure in the eye caused by glaucoma. A laser is used to treat the trabecular meshwork, the area of the eye responsible for fluid drainage. The procedure is usually completed within 10 minutes.


This procedure removes the vitreous humor (the thick, jelly-like fluid in the eye's rear chamber). Vitrectomy is used to treat a variety of eye problems, most commonly when the vitreous humor has grown cloudy or has filled with blood from a hemorrhage. Vitrectomy is performed in an operating room under local or general anesthesia. It usually takes one to two hours to complete.
