At Western Laser Eye Associates, we not only specialize in PRK, we can also take care of your general ophthalmology needs.
Refractive surgery can free you from eyeglasses and contacts, but that doesn’t mean you should stop having eye exams. Many conditions that can rob you of your sight do not have early warning signs, and can only be detected by a thorough exam. Early detection can save your vision.
Our eye care services include:
Dr. Anderson Penno has been practicing ophthalmology since 1996. An ophthalmologist is more than just an eye expert. Ophthalmologists are medical doctors who specialize in eye care. Many conditions of the eye stem from health problems elsewhere in the body, such as diabetes.
The YAG (yttrium-aluminum-garnet) laser is used in the eye clinic to treat the following:
- Yag Peripheral Iridotomy for treamtment of Narrow Angles
- Yag Capsulotomy for treatment of Secondary Cataract
Western Laser Eye Associates has a number of diagnostic instruments in the clinic that are used for detection of a large number of eye conditions as well as to assess for Custom PRK. This equipment includes:
- Pentacam Corneal Mapping
- Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT)
- Humprey Visual Field Analyzer
- Baily Lovie Contrast Sensitivity Test
- Orthoptics Testing
A complete eye exam goes further than an eye chart test and a brief look at your eyes. A full exam includes dilation to check for signs of eye disease or deterioration, and can catch conditions such as glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy before they do permanent damage.
