Lasik

Maybe it’s time for LASIK

Laser vision correction can be an exciting change and lead to improvements in your quality of life. Whether you are on the go or spending time at your desk, the convenience of LASIK can make a difference in your day. And consider this: LASIK is a one-time cost, compared to the lifelong expense of replacing contact lenses and eyeglasses.

We are fortunate to have Dr. Katy Fethke at Intermountain Eye Centers. She has over 16 years of refractive surgery experience using the latest technologies in helping patients eliminate or reduce their dependence on glasses and contact lenses.  She is a board certified ophthalmologist who received her refractive surgery training during her residency program by two of the country’s refractive pioneers.

Cataracts

The science of cataracts

A cataract results when the natural lens of the eye becomes cloudy. It is usually the result of normal aging. A cataract may also be caused by certain diseases and medications such as steroids or trauma. A cataract prevents light from being clearly focused, causing blurred vision and problems with glare such as oncoming car headlights at night. However, a cataract does not form on the eye, but rather within the eye.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma and blindness

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. Some research predicts that by the year 2040 glaucoma may become the leading cause of functional blindness in the U.S. Glaucoma is actually a family of many different diseases that usually causes an increase in the pressure within the eye, damaging the optic nerve. When pressure inside the eye increases and over time the optic nerve is damaged, blind spots in peripheral areas of vision may occur and eventually begin to affect the central vision. Often called the “sneak thief” of sight, most forms of glaucoma do not produce symptoms until vision is already severely damaged and may take many years to do so. However, if caught early the disease can usually be controlled and permanent vision loss can be prevented.

Retina

Retina: Like the film in a camera

The retina is the tissue-paper-thin membrane in the back of the eye that acts like the film in a camera. The retina collects information from images projected upon it by the optical parts of the eye and sends it along the optic nerve to the brain, where it is interpreted and experienced as vision.
