Sometimes, we have patients come in with minor cataract problems, which haven’t progressed enough to cause vision loss and don’t qualify for cataract surgery based on Medicare guidelines. In these instances, we typically recommend doing a refractive lens exchange. Refractive lens exchange involves replacing your natural eye lens with a multifocal implant, which corrects vision like LASIK and prevents the need for cataract surgery later on...Read More
Griffin & Reed Eye Care Vision Information
Providing crystal clear vision to Sacramento, Roseville, Folsom, & nearby areas of California
The likelihood of needing a post-LASIK enhancement varies by patient and largely depends on the severity of your prescription. Patients in the minus one to six range are less likely to need an enhancement LASIK procedure than patients who have a prescription of minus ten. We use real data from our patients in the last year to help us determine your chances of needing an additional LASIK touch up. Learn more from our eye doctors in the video above...Read More
There is a risk of infection involved in any form of surgery, even cataract surgery. Our eye surgeons decrease this risk by having our patients begin taking antibiotics prior to eye surgery, and we also have our at-risk patients start anti-inflammatory medications beforehand. We make sure your eye is in good health through a dilated eye exam before scheduling your procedure. Learn more about the potential risks of cataract surgery...Read More

One of the most common questions we hear at our Sacramento and Roseville offices is whether you can go blind from LASIK. It is possible, but extremely rare and typically happens due to cheap or poorly-maintained equipment. However, you can also go blind from wearing contacts or from an untreated eye infection. Our eye surgeons use state-of-the-art equipment and have decades of experience with LASIK and other forms of eye surgery. Learn more in...Read More
A pediatrician will typically be the first to notice a vision problem in your child during a wellness visit. Sometimes, these issues are caught during a school screening, while other times it can take years for parents to notice behaviors that indicate poor vision such as squinting. You should bring your child in for an eye exam by the time they’re five because the earlier a lazy eye or refractive error is caught, the better quality of life your child can have.
Cataracts are a leading cause of blindness in America and even men and women who have had LASIK are susceptible to this eye disease. Many of our patients stay with Griffin & Reed Eye Care for years, even decades, and our LASIK patients are used to a higher standard of vision. Dr. Reed believes in using premium multifocal lenses because these implants are the best way to restore your vision as close to 20/20 as possible. One of Dr. Reed’s patients was able to see 20/20 the...Read More
Individual LASIK patients stick out over the years. For Dr. Kim, that patient was a gentleman who came in after his house had caught on fire. Instead of being able to find his kids and get out of the house quickly, he had to waste precious time finding his glasses. Everyone got out of the house safely, but it was that moment the man decided he needed to have refractive surgery.
