The Eye Center – Helping You See a Better Future

Jun 06, 2019  The Eye Center Chooses the Right Technology to Fit the Patient

Columbia, S.C. — The Eye Center is working to do what’s right for their patients. They have been implementing the latest technology for several eye conditions, including cataracts, diabetic eye disease, and glaucoma.

Having the tools to help and treat their patient is paramount at The Eye Center. The Columbia SC Eye Clinic even has the tools to help treat Cataracts. Cataracts are extremely common in the elderly and being able to correct cataracts with surgery was once difficult to treat, and most patients were confined to thick glasses for the remainder of their lives.

A cataract is caused by the lens of your eye aging. Over time, the lens gets clouded, and cataract surgery is needed. The surgery removes the damaged lens and replaces it during Intraocular Lens surgery (IOLs). Over 2 million cataract lens implant surgeries take place every year, and after only 20 minutes, the procedure is complete regular vision is restored within 1 to 3 days.

Getting cataract surgery of advanced lenses can give the patient the quality of their vision back for distances and close up. Traditional lens implants provide good vision but are limited in the scope of the vision. Glasses are still often required to correct distance problems. The doctors at The Eye Center know how to take care of eyes, and Dr. Brian Huff has performed over 15,000 surgeries for cataracts.

Lens implants are made to last a lifetime, and most patients wanting to have this surgery are approved, and the lenses being used are FDA approved. The lenses used to give the patient the results they want.
