A cataract is a clouding of the eye's lens. This condition affects millions of individuals. It is usually a slow process and causes a gradual reduction in vision. As it limits your ability to see, it causes glare and double vision and causes difficulty driving at night. Correction with a variety of intraocular lenses will restore your vision to its pre-cataract state. Dr. DeVenuto has vast experience with various state of the art intraocular lenses, including the newest Crystalens to correct near and distant vision and the toric intraocular lenses to correct astigmatism.
Dr. DeVenuto has performed thousands of cataract procedures with an excellent success rate.
Glaucoma, in most cases, is an eye disease that is caused by increased eye pressure and/or poor circulation. These problems can result in damage to the optic nerves causing gradual and complete loss of vision if left untreated. Glaucoma can be treated with medication, including drops and tablets, laser treatment and surgery. Laser treatments are performed in all our offices using various types of lasers which avoid the need of hospital visits.
