Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in the world. They typically come on after age 45 and progress slowly. You likely won’t notice any vision changes until you have problems passing a driving test or watching television. We look for early signs of cataracts during eye exams and can give you back your vision through cataract surgery. Many of our patients see 20/20 after surgery and no longer have to rely on glasses.

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.
Since laser vision correction involves the cornea, the health and integrity of the cornea is critical for safe and predictable outcomes. Previously, doctors only had scans such as...Read More

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...Read More
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...Read More
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...Read More
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...Read More
