Treatments for Nearsightedness

At North County Laser Eye Associates, we offer a complete range of treatment options for patients that suffer from nearsightedness (myopia).

Eye Exams Can Reveal the Need for YAG Capsulotomy

Although cataracts were once a leading cause of blindness, in developed countries today, the condition can be corrected in a matter of minutes. Your surgeon will simply remove the old, clouded lens and replace it with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). Cataract surgery poses few risks, and it can have enormous benefits for your quality of life. However, in some cases, you may suffer from posterior capsule opacity (PCO) after cataract surgery.
