Treatment in Jeannette, PA, for Cataracts and Diabetic Retinopathy
Visit our office in Jeanette, PA, for prompt help with any type of eye emergency. Some of the treatments available include:
Cataracts cloud the lens of the eye to the point of decreasing vision significantly if left untreated. Cataract surgery is available to remove the clouded lens and replace it with a new acrylic lens. This restores sharper, clearer vision almost immediately.
The leading cause of blindness for adults is diabetic retinopathy. Approximately 90% of diabetics are expected to experience this condition during their lifetime. The disease causes abnormalities to occur within the blood vessels that provide nourishment to the retina. These weakened vessels may leak and lead to a decrease in vision. Early detection and treatment are critical. It is absolutely vital that every diabetic patient receives a comprehensive annual eye exam.
