Eye diseases, from glaucoma to macular degeneration and more, share one thing in common, and it’s not something good: they don’t show their effects until they have become more advanced. The same is true of cataracts, so we urge you to get a yearly comprehensive eye exam done here at the practice of Dr. Shipley & Associates. As part of it, you will be screened for cataracts. Diagnosis and treatment follow. There is no reason to not have your best possible vision.
Many cases of cataracts are detected during a routine checkup. The blurry and cloudy vision that the condition causes may not have surfaced yet. IF it does, however, you should come in at your earliest convenience for our cataracts treatment in Santa Rosa. Eyeglasses or contact lenses are the first option for addressing it, and they do an excellent job. Over the course of time, as the disease progresses, you will need us to update your prescription so that you can continue to see your best in spite of cataracts. For many patients, a point is reached at which either corrective eyewear is no longer sufficient, or the desire for a more permanent solution means taking action. Part of our cataracts treatment in Santa Rosa is to provide co-management services for surgery. Cataracts surgery, done by a qualified and experienced surgeon, has a high rate of success. It involves the removal of your natural eye lenses and replacing them with artificial ones that include vision correction for maximum improvement. Let our eye doctor examine you, assess your suitability for the procedure, and answer all of your questions so that you can make the decision on whether or not to proceed.
