Featured Eye Surgeries and Opthalmology Treatments
Referred to as laser eye surgery or laser vision correction, our ophthalmologist offers this type of refractive surgery that involves the precise, controlled removal of corneal tissue from the eye. This procedure is used to treat vision problems caused by refractive errors, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Typically the lens of your eye is clear, but with age cloudy areas can develop. Cataracts blur your vision and, if left untreated, can lead to vision loss. Our ophthalmologist can perform eye surgery to remove cataracts from the eye, after which an artificial lens (called an intraocular lens, or IOL) is placed.
This eye surgery involves your ophthalmologist removing pterygia — abnormal, noncancerous tissue on your eye’s conjunctive — and replacing it with a graft of tissue that’s glued into place. Our office in Tortola utilizes the latest techniques to minimize regrowth or recurrence and get you back to your normal day-to-day as soon as possible.
Pars Plana Vitrectomy
Ophthalmologists use this type of eye surgery to treat various problems with the retina or the vitreous, including detached retinas, bleeding in the vitreous, macular holes, and beyond. With this procedure, your doctor will make small cuts in the white part of your eye, entering through an area called the pars plana and using a specialized microscope to assist with surgery.
This procedure involves your eye doctor removing all or part of your damaged cornea and replacing it with healthy donor tissue. This eye surgery can effectively treat a number of conditions, including keratoconus, Fuchs dystrophy, corneal tearing, and other complications. This procedure can help restore vision, lessen discomfort, and improve the appearance of your cornea.
