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've been told you have cataracts, it may sound frightening. But statistics show cataract surgery is very safe, effective and successful. Once you...

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?

Monofocal IOLs focus on one distance only, meaning that even after your cataract surgery, you will likely need glasses to see far away or close up - perhaps even...

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.

For most of us, some type of visual issue, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, means we need corrective lenses. But the time-tested technology of LASIK, along with the fine-tuned surgical skill of highly trained ophthalmologists, like...

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. We are pleased that the matching hour was, once again, the best hour...

Floaters are small specks in your field of vision. You might see them when you look at a plain background, like a blank wall. The vitreous humor of your eye- the clear gel that fills the inside of your eye - is where floaters originate, in the form of tiny bits of gel or cells. You aren't actually seeing these bits, but are really seeing their shadows as they are cast on your eye's retina, which is light sensitive. As your eye moves, the floater moves too, because it is inside your eye.

Older people at risk for detached retina sometimes see flashes of light, an early warning...

Custom laser vision correction, using sophisticated iris tracking, is the latest advance in the field of laser vision correction. We all have unique imperfections in our eyes, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, sometimes in combination. Irregularities happen because of the way our eye bends light, and these unique imperfections are known by eye care professionals as 'wavefront abnormalities'.

With the very latest CustomVue or Wavefront treatments, Sacramento LASIK eye care professionals can...

As we age, changes occur in our vision that may lead to a number of conditions, such as cataracts and presbyopia.

A cataract is an opaque or cloudy area that forms within the eye's lens, making vision difficult. Cataracts occur with aging or trauma. The treatment for cataracts is to remove the lens and implant an artificial lens, called an intraocular lens (IOL).

Presbyopia is an age-related vision impairment. As the tiny muscles controlling the crystalline lens become weaker, the lens cannot be shaped to accommodate changes in distance. Vision becomes blurry for near objects and the individual...

If you're considering LASIK surgery, you'll meet with an experienced ophthalmologist to check your vision and review your medical history. The ophthalmologist will discuss traditional and custom LASIK options.

The requirements for LASIK are:

  • Over 18
  • Good overall health
  • Good vision health
  • Vision errors within the FDA's approved range
  • Stable eyesight for 18-24 months

Before your LASIK procedure begins, you will receive a thorough eye examination, in which the amount of refractive error and...
