Bausch + Lomb provides surgeons with the tools and technology to perform all the latest techniques for the treatment of cataracts and vitreoretinal conditions.
Vitreoretinal surgery is the treatment of disorders related to the retina, vitreous and macula. Ophthalmic surgeons use specialized techniques, instruments and solutions to treat conditions that include retinal detachment, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and uveitis. Retinal and vitreous problems can cause severe loss of vision or even blindness. In some cases, surgery may be beneficial and - if done at the right time - might prevent severe loss of vision.
Developing a cataract doesn't mean a permanent loss of vision quality, or having to give up the things you love. Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed surgery in the U.S., with well over 3 million Americans having the procedure every year. Typically done on an outpatient basis, the natural lens is removed and replaced with what is called an intraocular lens (IOL). The procedure is highly successful and most people regain very good vision.
