Tecnis Symfony Intraocular ‘Extended Range of Vision’ lens

When you have a cataract, it means that you have a clouding of the natural lens of the eye. Today this can be easily corrected by Garden Grove eye surgery during which time the damaged lens is removed and a new man-made lens is inserted into the eye. Symfony is the first lens of its kind in the US, to be implanted during cataract surgery, that can provide a full range of high quality vision similar to the zoom lens of a camera. The Symfony lens is approved in more than 50 countries around the world, and has been widely studied with data from numerous clinical studies. Dr. Younger is the first surgeon in Orange County to use the Symfony lens and has been using the Symfony’s predecessor lens, called the Tecnis Multifocal, in Orange County since 2010.  In clinical studies, the Symfony lens provides many benefits, including: allowing patients to see objects sharply and clearly at near, intermediate and far away distances, and points in between, high quality vision and a low incidence of halo and glare, which may be perceived as rings or blurring around bright lights.

If you suffer from diabetes, you are probably aware that you may also be more likely to develop certain types of eye problems. For patients who have elevated blood sugars, they are at risk for developing diabetic retinopathy, and possibly other eye problems including glaucoma. For this reason, it is recommended that patients with diabetes come in on a regular basis for diabetic screenings and management of any eye problems he may be experiencing. Our ophthalmologist in Garden Grove CA, will be able to provide you with an accurate and thorough eye exam so that any developing or existing eye problems can be diagnosed and treated early.

Our top-notch ophthalmologist is Dr. Lincoln L. Manzi. Dr. Manzi has been in private practice in Orange County for over 30 years, and is the founding ophthalmologist of our Orange Coast Eye Center. Dr. Jared R. Younger is one of our board-certified and fellowship trained ophthalmologists. He specializes in cornea and refractive surgeries and other eye health treatments. If you have diabetes, our doctor will recommend that you come in for regularly scheduled diabetic eye exams. Depending on your eye health and your overall medical health, our doctor will let you know exactly how often you should come in to see our ophthalmologist in Garden Grove CA.

Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness for people under 65. If you have diabetes, and your blood sugars are elevated, you run an increased risk of developing diabetic retinopathy. This eye disease is actually a collection of several types of eye diseases which affect the blood vessels that surround and nourish the retina and macula. Diabetic retinopathy can lead to decreased vision acuity and even blindness. It generally gets gradually worse over the years. In the beginning the blood vessels in the eye become weakened. This can lead to blood eventually leaking into the retina from these blood vessels. This type of retinopathy is called non-proliferative retinopathy and is the most common form of the disease. If the fluid leaks into the center of your eye this can cause you to have blurry vision. If blood sugar levels are allowed to stay high diabetic retinopathy will keep getting worse. Newer and weaker blood vessels will continue to develop. These blood vessels can break open very easily causing blood to leak into the middle of your eye and hurt your vision. This bleeding can cause scar tissue to develop which will pull on the retina and cause a retinal detachment. Retinopathy can also cause macular edema. This condition can cause legal blindness. If you would like to see our ophthalmologist in Garden Grove CA for a diabetic eye exam, contact us today for an appointment.

Has your vision become blurred, and you have trouble seeing at night? Do you have trouble seeing when watching television? It so, is very possible that you may have cataracts. In any event it is very important that you come in to see our ophthalmologist to determine the cause of these vision changes. The good news is that if you do indeed have cataracts that there is laser cataract surgery which will easily solve your problem in a very short period of time. To learn more about cataract surgery, and if you will be needing it, make an appointment to visit us at our eye care practice, Orange Coast Eye Center. At our Garden Grove ophthalmology office your particular vision situation will be expertly diagnosed and treatment options will be discussed.

Cataract surgery is one of the most common and safest laser surgeries performed today. Many patients have cataracts and end up needing laser cataract surgery. Most cataracts, if left untreated, may go on to cause total blindness. However, if a cataract is treated with laser surgery, vision will be fully restored. In fact, many patients have better unaided vision than they had before the cataract occurred. When a patient has a cataract it means that there is a clouding of the natural lens of the eye. This can occur simply due to aging or having certain medical conditions. A cataract can be easily diagnosed when you come in to our Garden Grove ophthalmology office for a comprehensive eye exam. Our expert ophthalmologists are Dr. Lincoln L. Manzi and Dr. Jared R. Younger.

Cataract surgery is generally performed on one eye at a time and is done on an outpatient basis. The patient generally receives only local anesthesia and feels no pain during the procedure. Cataract surgery is a very short procedure taking about 15 minutes. During this time a laser is used to produce a tiny incision in the eye. Through this tiny incision the original lens is removed from the eye and a new man-made lens is inserted to take its place. There are absolutely no stitches or bandages needed for this incision. The man-made lens generally will provide the patient with excellent distance vision. However, today many patients are choosing to have lenses inserted which will provide them with excellent vision at a variety of distances. This may mean that they will not need to use prescription eyeglasses again. The new man-made lens will never develop cataracts or need treatment of any type. If you would like to come into our Garden Grove ophthalmology office for a comprehensive eye exam, and cataract surgery if necessary, contact us today for an appointment.
