The Vision Professionals’ David V. Leaming, M.D. and Robert B. Guss, M.D. are eye physicians and surgeons. The Vision Professionals' combined experience provides patients with the best-quality care and personal attention. In addition to refractive surgery, The Vision Professionals offer cataract surgery, corneal surgery, and laser treatments for glaucoma, diabetes and many other eye conditions (including routine eye care).
A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. It can be compared to a window that is fogged with steam. Cataracts occur as a normal part of the aging process and are the main cause of poor vision in people over 65 years of age.
Common Symptoms Of Cataracts Include:
- Blurry or Hazy Vision
- Glare or Light Sensitivity
- Frequent Eyeglass Prescription Changes
- Double Vision in One Eye
- Poor Night Vision
- Decreased Color Perception
Other Causes Of Cataracts Include:
- Family History
- Medical Problems, Such As Diabetes
- Injury To The Eye
- Medications, Such As Steroids
- Long-Term, Unprotected Exposure To Sunlight
- Previous Eye Surgery
Cataract surgery should be considered when cataracts cause enough loss of vision to interfere with daily activities. When a cataract forms, the lens of the eye becomes thick and cloudy. Light cannot pass through it easily, and vision is blurred. Eventually, if left alone, a cataract will become so dense that finally only light and dark can be detected, and even very strong glasses will not help vision.
During cataract surgery, which is usually performed under local anesthesia as an outpatient procedure, the cloudy lens is removed from the eye. Next, the natural lens is restored by replacing it with an intraocular lens implant. The intraocular implants are permanent, require no maintenance, and produce clear, undistorted vision. Most patients see improved vision quickly after surgery.
Lasers are not used to remove cataracts. In about one-fifth of the people who have cataract surgery and receive an intraocular lens, the natural capsule that supports the intraocular lens may later become cloudy. Laser surgery is then used to open this cloudy capsule, restoring the clear vision permanently.
After cataract surgery, you may return almost immediately to all but strenuous activities. You will have to take eye drops and return for several post-op visits, as directed by the doctor.
Cataract surgery is a highly successful procedure. Improved vision is the result in over 90% of cases. Our ophthalmologists have performed thousands of cataract surgeries and offer exceptional care for those who suffer with cataracts.

iZon Customized Eyeglasses: High-Definition Vision
Have you seen the fantastic difference between high-definition TV and “conventional” TV? Would you like to have glasses that provide true high-definition, whether for day or nighttime activity, up-close and at a distance? Ophthonix has introduced iZon Customized Eyeglasses, based on new vision technology that allows your unique optical fingerprint, or “iPrint™,” to be corrected with fully customized lenses. These lenses are made as a one-of-a-kind match for your eyes.
In fact, like fingerprints, no two eyes are exactly alike — even your own two eyes differ. (That’s why retinal scanning is being developed to identify and differentiate individuals; each of us has a unique retinal signature.) But until now, many people the world over have received the exact same prescription for their eyes. Today, your unique vision correction solution is attainable: iZon Eyeglasses have literally thousands of points of correction, providing high-def vision that will make your old glasses seem like a TV from a bygone era.
The maker of iZon lenses, Ophthonix, uses wavefront technology to measure each eye, and programs an individual’s unique iPrint into its special lens material on a point-by-point basis, achieving stunning clarity and crispness of vision. Each iZon lens is thus uniquely optimized for the patient.
If you’d like to find out more about iZon lenses from Ophthonix, contact The Vision Professionals for a consultation today.
What Laser Do You Use?
The Vision Professionals use the VISX Excimer Laser System. VISX was the first system to develop the treatment and the first laser to be approved by the FDA. The Vision Professionals have found that the VISX laser is the most precise and safest system while still providing a wide array of treatments for a wider array of patients. From 1995-present, 9 out of 10 doctors choose to use the VISX Excimer Laser System over any other laser system.
Are There Any Risks?
It is important to understand the risks associated with laser vision correction before surgery. Although only a very small percentage of laser correction patients experience complications or side effects, the laser procedure, as with any surgical procedure, has limitations and risks. The risk of having a serious vision-threatening complication is less than 0.1%.
How Long Does The Surgery Take?
Most patients prefer to have both eyes done at the same time. This normally takes 15 minutes for the whole procedure. The time that the laser is on your eye depends upon your prescription, but, generally is anywhere from 10-60 seconds.
How Well Will I See After Laser Vision Correction?
Results vary with each individual. In most cases, your vision should be improved immediately after the surgery. Some patients may experience fluctuating vision during the first couple of weeks to a couple of months.
How Soon Can I Return To Work?
The Vision Professionals perform the surgery on Friday and see you for your first post-op visit on Saturday morning. Most patients return to work on Monday.
