Surgery Center Q & A

When is eye surgery necessary for vision correction?

Eye surgery may be needed to correct problems that contribute to vision loss. Often surgery can be used to slow the progression of eye conditions, or to treat an underlying cause of common eye problems such as:

  • 
Glaucoma
  • Macular degeneration
  • Cataracts
  • Chronic dry eye
  • Nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), or astigmatism

Ophthalmologists like those at Rothchild Eye Institute who specialize in these surgical treatments are highly skilled at correcting vision using up-to-date techniques, helping to improve your vision and prevent long-term complications that could result in blindness.

What corrective eye surgeries are available?

Dr. Rothchild has over 30 years of experience in both medical and surgical correction of vision problems, including cataracts and astigmatism.

He and his team at Rothchild Eye Institute offer on-site surgical treatments such as:

LASIK refractive surgery

The LASIK procedure is used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Utilizing modern techniques and instruments designed by Dr. Rothchild, this procedure uses highly accurate laser technology to correct the underlying cause of your blurry vision.

Cataract surgery

Cataract surgery offers correction for cloudy or foggy vision caused by cataracts, using up-to-date techniques and premium intraocular lenses (IOLs). This procedure is a specialty of Dr. Rothchild’s, who is considered an expert in the field.

The field of vision correction is ever changing and Dr. Rothchild and his team are committed to staying up-to-date and trained in all the best and most effective methods and techniques for correcting your vision.

What cosmetic eye surgeries are available?

Rothchild Eye Institute is proud to have Cara W. Snyder, MD, an experienced and highly skilled doctor of oculoplasty, on their team. She specializes in blepharoplasty, and offers this procedure at their on-site surgery center.

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery used to remove excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. Also known as an eye lift, this procedure can help to correct the appearance of baggy or droopy eyes, a common change that happens with age.

Other eye surgeries performed by the oculoplastic specialists at Rothchild Eye Institute include repair and reconstruction of tear ducts and enhancement of the area around the eye, including brow and cheek lifts.
