  • Cataracts Lebanon

  • A cataract is a cloudy or opaque change in the normally clear lens of the eye. This lens in located behind the iris of the eye. The lens has an important function to focus light on the retina by changing its shape as the distance of the object viewed changes.

    Cataracts are typically associated with age and begin to form in our 60's, but in rare cases can occur in as young as infants. These changes usually occur slowly over a decade or longer and are found in each eye, even though one can be worse than the other. The type of cataract will determine the severity of vision loss and the rate at which it will progress. Cataracts usually cause a gradual increase in blurred vision that is constant every day, creating greater sensitivity to lights and glare at night, and reduced intensity of colors.

    What you see with Cataracts

    Cataract onset can present earlier in life due to smoking, drug abuse, poor health, diabetes, and exposure to UV radiation. Research has shown that vitamin C and E can be helpful in reducing risk, but there is no clinically established treatment to slow or prevent cataract formation.

    Cataracts are diagnosed frequently by Dr. Knecht, O.D. Once the cataract has matured enough for surgery the patient will be referred to one of our local cataract surgeons. These surgeons are Dr. Madsen, Dr. Davis, and Dr. Genstler. Each are highly skilled and experienced in cataract surgery and provide excellent results. Post operative care is then usually performed by Dr. Knecht.

  • LASIK Lebanon

  • LASIK (Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis) is a procedure that involves creating a hinged flap of corneal tissue then utilizing a laser to gently reshape the inner layers of the cornea.  This is a highly effective procedure for moderate to high amounts of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.  More patients are choosing LASIK because of the fast recovery time - usually within 24 hours- and less follow up care.  Dr. Knecht, O.D. offers both pre-operative and post-operative care.

    Before LASIK a pre-operative examination will be performed. This examination involves counseling, eye dominancy testing, review of medical and eye history, medical evaluation of the eye, refraction, and corneal thickness and curvature measurements. After this thorough evaluation it will be determined if you are a candidate for LASIK or PRK.
