Cataract Surgery

A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that can cause changes in vision. Cataracts block light from passing through the lens of your eye, making it harder to see clearly.

You may experience a number of symptoms with cataracts, as they affect people differently. The most common symptoms of cataracts are blurred vision, sensitivity to light, double vision, a change in your prescription, or even improved vision for a time.

Sometimes cataracts can be fixed with glasses or contacts. When this is not the case, surgery is the recommended solution to repairing a cataract. The cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens. The surgery is both safe and extremely effective at improving vision.

We perform the following types of cataract procedures at the Eye Surgery Center of Knoxville:

  • Modern Cataract Surgery
  • Astigmatism Correction (Toric Intraocular Lens Implants, Limbal Relaxing Incisions)
  • Premium Advanced Technology Intraocular Lens Implants

Glaucoma Surgery

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that can damage the eye’s optic nerve, resulting in vision loss and blindness. Glaucoma can be inherited, and usually shows up later in life. Regular eye exams are essential in early detection of Glaucoma, especially if your family has a history of eye disease.

Most types of glaucoma do not have any early-warning symptoms. There is no pain, and no vision loss. Without treatment, or if glaucoma remains undiscovered, people slowly lose their peripheral vision.

Unfortunately, glaucoma is not curable. The vision loss from glaucoma cannot be restored. Thankfully, glaucoma is treatable, especially when detected early. Eye drops are the most common early treatment for glaucoma. If needed, glaucoma surgery is also a viable treatment to prevent further vision loss.

We perform the following glaucoma procedures at our surgery center:

  • iStent
  • Endocyclophotocoagulation (ECP)
  • Kahook Dual Blade Goniotomy
  • Trabeculectomy
  • Laser Peripheral Iridotomy
  • Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty
  • MicroPulse Laser Trabeculoplasty
