CATARACT SURGERY

Arbor surgeons utilize the latest technology in laser refractive cataract surgery, and microincision phacoemulsification technology to remove cataracts.  These surgical innovations allow you to quickly return to a normal lifestyle.  New advanced technology lenses, including astigmatism-correcting toric and multi-focal, provide greater freedom from glasses following cataract surgery.

LenSx® LASER REFRACTIVE CATARACT SURGERY

1.DL and LenSx_0_0.jpgCataract surgery is one of the most frequently performed procedures in the world today.  Thanks to advances in technology, there are now many options to choose from when considering cataract surgery.  One of these options is Laser Refractive Cataract Surgery using the new LenSx® Laser. At Arbor Centers for EyeCare, we are proud to be one of the first practices in the nation to    provide this advanced, state-of-the-art technology.  

LenSx® Laser technology uses high-resolution scans of your eye to implement a customized cataract procedure tailored toward your unique vision needs.  Once the surgeon plans the operation, the laser uses its blade-free technology to create incisions, reduce astigmatism, and divide the cataract into segments.  The surgeon then removes the cataract segments ultrasonically and inserts a synthetic lens to correct and improve your vision.  Discuss with your doctor what options are best for treating your cataracts.

GLAUCOMA

Glaucoma is a vision-threatening condition without signs or symptoms.  We understand that a diagnosis of glaucoma can be concerning for anyone.  Arbor’s glaucoma specialists excel in the early diagnosis, and superior medical and surgical treatments of this condition.  Our doctors educate patients about their individualized treatment plan including potential need for eye drop usage, laser therapy or surgery, allowing each patient to continue to live life as fully as possible.

A team of Arbor doctors is one of the first in Chicago and Illinois to offer a unique surgery to our patients for the treatment of glaucoma in combination with cataract surgery.  The iStent® (http://www.glaukos.com/istent) is a micro-implant, placed in the eye during cataract surgery to increase and improve fluid outflow and decrease eye pressure.  For many patients, fewer or no glaucoma drops will be needed following iStent® insertion.  If you have glaucoma and cataracts, please contact the office to schedule an appointment with one of our surgeons (Dr. Chris Albanis, Dr. David Lubeck, Dr. Richard Quinones, or Dr. Neha Sangal) to determine if iStent® is right for you.

CORNEAL TRANSPLANTATION

For individuals requiring surgery for diseased, damaged, or scarred corneas, Arbor Centers for EyeCare offers endothelial Descemet’s Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSEK), full-thickness, or limbal stem cell corneal transplantation.  Dr. Lubeck, our cornea specialist, has the training and expertise to recommend and perform the best procedure for each patient.

PEDIATRIC OPHTHALMOLOGY AND ADULT STRABISMUS

Various conditions can affect a child’s eyes from birth through young adulthood.  Early recognition and treatment are paramount to lifelong eye health and vision.  A doctor’s visit can be an intimidating experience for both child and parent.  Arbor’s pediatric eye care team specializes in treating children’s eye muscle imbalance, amblyopia (lazy eye), and congenital disorders in a friendly, playful environment.  We also use the latest techniques to treat adults with double vision, misaligned eyes, and eyelid spasm.

EYELID, TEAR DUCT, AND ORBITAL SURGERY
