Advanced Eye Care
Ophthalmologists at Texoma Medical Center help patients gain or retain their optimal vision health by providing comprehensive clinical services, ranging from routine eye exams to advanced surgical procedures. Services include:
A cataract is a cloudy area in the lens of the eye that affects vision. Cataracts are very common in older people. By age 80, more than half of all Americans have a cataract or have had cataract surgery, according to the National Eye Institute. A cataract can occur in one or both eyes. Common symptoms include blurry vision, double vision, seeing a halo around lights and poor night vision.
Cataract surgery involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial lens. Texoma Medical Center offers cataract surgery using advanced technology, including multi-focal lenses and toric lenses that can help eliminate astigmatism.
Glaucoma is a group of diseases that can damage the eye's optic nerve and is a leading cause of blindness in the United States, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology. The risk for glaucoma increases with age (40 years and older) and is more prevalent in individuals with a family history of glaucoma and those of African-American descent. Therefore, it is important to be screened for glaucoma with a regular eye exam.
There is no cure for glaucoma, but treatment can control the condition and prevent further loss of sight. Texoma Medical Center offers advanced care for glaucoma, including microinvasive glaucoma surgery and laser treatment.
A vitrectomy is a surgical procedure used to treat issues of the retina and vitreous, the jelly-like substance that fills the middle of the eye. The procedure can be used to treat many conditions, including retinal detachment, macular hole and diabetic eye disease.
Ophthalmologists at Texoma Medical Center offer 24-hour emergency eye surgery for eye trauma, including a ruptured globe, which occurs when the outer membrane of the eye is disrupted.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reduce or eliminate sagging or drooping eyelids. This includes ptosis, which is a drooping of the upper eyelid.
