Dr. Nilu Maboudi initially wanted to become a pediatrician; however, she met an ophthalmologist in a chance encounter who convinced her to give ophthalmology a try. She studied it for a month and fell in love, prompting her to enter into an ophthalmology residency. Since then, she's never looked back. Watch the video to hear her talk about her journey.
Vision loss or blindness is a big fear for many of our Roseville and Sacramento patients. In fact, some of our patients who have had heart transplants or other life-threatening surgeries admit that they are more nervous to have LASIK vision correction than they were for their previous surgeries.
A patient's safety is the eye doctor's first priority in laser vision correction. Not only must the health of the eyes and the health of the patient be considered while critical standards of eligibility must be met. Eye testing with non-routine scans and devices help to inform patients of their eligibility for laser eye surgery, ensuring the safest possible choice for each patient.
AcrySof ReSTOR lens is a breakthrough in vision surgery, allowing patients who have had cataract surgery to stop wearing glasses. The AcrySof ReSTOR intraocular lens (IOL), improves vision up close, far away and at all distances in-between, so that cataract patients can once again enjoy life without the bother of corrective lenses.
If you're considering the prospect of cataract surgery, you've probably discussed your options with your eye doctor. Perhaps he or she has mentioned the 'monofocal lens' as one type of intraocular lens (IOL) that could be used. But what really is the difference between monofocal lenses and the AcrySof(R) ReSTOR(R) IOL?
If you've ever lost your glasses only to find them perched on your head, you've probably considered LASIK surgery. But the idea of having a doctor perform such a delicate procedure on a body part as precious as your eyes may be keeping you from taking advantage of this amazing technology.
We recently had the opportunity to help once again kick off the UC Davis Children's Hospital fundraiser on Entercom radio with the Rob, Arnie and Dawn show during their 29 hour straight RAD-a-thon. We are honored to have the opportunity to give back to the community with efforts such as this with the UC Davis Children's Hospital. From 7-8AM we matched all donations that came in during the Rob, Arnie and Dawn show. It was a great opportunity to answer questions some listeners had about laser vision correction and help out with a great cause.
