Your golden years should be some of the best years of your life but, as we age, our eyesight often begins to deteriorate, often to the point where our quality of life is adversely affected. In fact, in the United States, the leading causes of vision impairment and blindness are primarily age related eye disease such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
While these problems aren’t always preventable, they are usually treatable, usually with simple, relatively painless outpatient procedures. Due to amazing advances in optical technology and microsurgical techniques, many eye surgeries--such as cataract removal, Lasik, multifocal intraocular lens implantation and CK--are among the most successful and low-risk medical procedures you can have.
Performed on an outpatient basis, these procedures are relatively quick and usually involve minimal discomfort. In addition, most patients report dramatic results and are able to return to their normal routines in just a couple of days.
Thanks to Dr. Charles Kirby and the Chattanooga Eye Institute, people all over the Tennessee Valley reduce or even eliminate their dependence on glasses and contacts. The Chattanooga Eye Institute is dedicated to helping you achieving your personal best vision.
It’s important to remember that people over fifty have an increased risk for certain age-related eye conditions. That’s why the first step toward maintaining or restoring good vision is prevention. Often, the first symptoms of serious eye diseases are very minor and can only be detected by a trained ophthalmologist. Have your eyes examined at least once a year or anytime you notice a sudden change in your vision or have any eye pain, dryness or discomfort. Early detection usually means the disease can be stopped, controlled or even corrected before irreparable damage is done. The longer you wait, the more your vision is at risk.
Whether you suffer from cataracts, glaucoma, near-sightedness, far-sightedness, diabetic retinopathy or most any other type of vision impairment, the Chattanooga Eye Institute can help you achieve your personal best vision.
