Problems that can be treated by our ophthalmolotic team at Ophthalteam
Refractive problems: myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism
These refractive problems are so common that they are immediately associated with the figure of the ophthalmologist for diagnosis.
Nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism can be corrected by intraocular lenses or laser surgery so that you forget about glasses and contact lenses once and for all.
Presbyopia is also considered a refractive problem, but it has its own peculiarities as it is associated with aging. It is undoubtedly another of the problems for which the ophthalmologist is most frequently visited.
Also known as tired eyesight, this problem affects everyone from 40 to 45 years of age, since the lens loses the ability to focus on nearby objects.
Although it may appear associated with another refractive problem such as myopia or hyperopia, it can be operated to gain quality of life by dispensing with the use of glasses or contact lenses according to ophthalmology expert witness. Furthermore, replacing the lens with an intraocular lens prevents future cataract development.
Cataracts are another of the most frequent reasons for visiting the ophthalmologist associated with age.
The only possible treatment is surgery that replaces the lens with an intraocular lens, removing them forever.
Another advantage of cataract-surgery is that the lens that replaces the lens is adjusted to correct the patient’s refractive problems, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and / or astigmatism.
Prevention and routine check-ups are essential in the detection of glaucoma, since early diagnosis is vital to prevent progression to blindness.
This eye disease causes loss of vision due to increased intraocular pressure. It is degenerative and constitutes the second cause of blindness after cataracts.
The ophthalmologist diagnoses and treats diseases of the retina such as Age-Associated Macular Degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinitis pigmentosa, and retinal detachment.
Surgery solves cosmetic problems such as bags, drooping eyelids, dark circles, crow’s feet and wrinkles that make the look less luminous, but it also has a reconstructive purpose. In fact, surgery also solves problems of excess tearing and tumors that are inside and outside the eye .
