Experience Expert Care at New Vision Eye Center
The expression, “the eyes are the windows to the soul,” has been attributed to Shakespeare, Leonardo da Vinci, even the Bible. Whoever coined the phrase understood the connection that we feel when looking into another person’s eyes. And that connection is only one of the vital ways that the eyes help us experience the world around us. The eyes are used to perceive our impressions of others, express sadness through tears, sense danger, absorb information, and even appreciate beauty. To lose these important functions would be to lose a part of ourselves. That’s why maintaining good eye health is so important, and for those on the Treasure Coast of Florida, there’s no better place to do that than New Vision Eye Center in Vero Beach.
Many of us take our eyes for granted and go too long without an eye exam, which should be an annual tradition. At New Vision Eye Center, eye exams are handled by a group of talented, Board-certified doctors who share the common goal of helping their patients maintain and make improvements to their vision. At New Vision Eye Center’s state-of-the-art facility, patients receive the most advanced eye care available, including advanced laser cataract surgery, dropless custom cataract surgery, glaucoma treatment, surgical and medical retina care, laser vision correction, general ophthalmology and eyelid surgery.
While there are several threats to good eye health, the most common are cataracts and glaucoma, which can be expertly treated at New Vision Eye Center.
Inside the eye is a soft lens that refracts light rays as they enter the eye, helping us to see. This lens should be clear, but if you have a cataract, the lens has become hardened and cloudy, causing blurry vision and diminishes the perception of colors. This condition is corrected by having the lens surgically removed and replaced. And while some may find the idea of cataract surgery scary, the procedure is one of the most commonly and successfully performed operations in the United States, taking less than 15 minutes. According to the National Eye Institute, cataract removal has a 90 percent success rate in improving the vision of those afflicted with cataracts. At New Vision Eye Center offers cataract removal procedures that are customized to the patient’s needs and lifestyle. Every eye is unique. One of the gentlest, most advanced technologies available is laser, dropless cataract surgery. “My ‘new vision’ allows me to see clearly without glasses except for reading, which was my choice. I can now drive at night again, which is something I stopped doing years ago because of my cataracts,” said Neda Heeter. “I highly recommend The Cataract Institute at New Vision Eye Center.”
Glaucoma is a common eye disease faced by millions of people. A condition of the optic nerve in the eye, glaucoma occurs when the nerve becomes damaged and is related to high pressure within the eye. There are a variety of treatments. At first, the doctors treat the damage with prescription eye drops. If a patient is identified as having progressive nerve fiber loss and glaucoma damage, the doctors measure their baseline eye pressure and then try to lower it by 20 to 30 percent using the eye drops. If that treatment is unsuccessful, the next step is a two to three-minute procedure called SLT (Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty), which can control eye pressure for anywhere from three to five years. At New Vision Eye Center, the nurses, doctors and technical staff walk patients through the process and procedures in comforting way. “I have to say that being referred to New Vision Eye Center was one of the best decisions that I have had to make. From the very first visit I found them to be very professional, personable and knowledgeable in their individual area of expertise,” said Joan Martinez. “They made me feel like I was their only patient. The entire experience was amazing.”
