At our office, our two top-notch ophthalmologists are Dr. Gary R. Fishman are Dr. Simon Wu. One of the main services offered by our eye doctor in the Bronx is LASIK vision correction. This type of LASIK surgery is performed so that a patient will no longer be dependent on glasses or contact lenses. It is approved for the treatment of patients who are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism. This procedure is performed through a flap in the cornea. For this reason it is important that your cornea is determined to be thick enough so that it can be correctly utilized during the surgery. Our eye doctor in the Bronx will be able to review your particular situation and let you know if you are a good candidate for LASIK vision correction.
Another surgery performed by our eye doctor in the Bronx is cataract surgery. When a patient has a cataract in their eye they have a clouding of the natural lens of the eye. Cataracts will eventually lead to blindness, in most cases, if they are left untreated. However, our ophthalmologist is able to provide you with laser cataract surgery. During the surgery a small incision will be made in your eye through which the old natural lens is removed and a new man-made lens is inserted. There are many different types of intraocular lenses that can be inserted into your eyes to provide you with excellent vision after the surgery. Cataract laser surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, while the patient only has localized anesthesia in his or her eyes. The surgery is very short, lasting only about 15 minutes per eye, with generally one eye being operated on at a time. For an appointment to see our eye doctor in the Bronx, contact us today.
