Ophthalmology at Fishkind, Bakewell, Maltzman, & Hunter
An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor that can offer a variety of eye services, ranging from treatment of eye diseases and routine eye exams to eye surgery. While this practitioner can perform typical services and help patients receive the vision correction they need, these doctors also received specialized training for surgical eye procedures. At Fishkind, Bakewell, Maltzman, Hunter & Associates Eye Care & Surgery Center in Tucson and the neighboring areas, we offer various ophthalmology services to keep your eyes comfortable and seeing clearly.
LASIK and PRK Eye Surgery
Nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism are refractive errors which are caused by an irregular shape of the cornea which obscures light from entering the eye correctly. Our doctors can correct these refractive errors with LASIK or PRK eye surgery, so that light shines on or closer to the retina than before. As a result, your vision will improve, and you'll be less reliant or completely non-reliant on prescription eyewear to correct your problem. Our eye surgeons perform multiple types of laser eye surgery and will help you choose which one is right for you after a comprehensive eye exam and medical history analysis.
Cataracts occur when the lens of your eye becomes clouded. In the early stages, we can manage your condition using prescription eyewear alone. Once this method is no longer effective, our ophthalmologists can recommend cataract surgery. For this type of surgery, our eye surgeons will remove your clouded lens and replace it with a clear, artificial lens which will improve your vision after surgery.
Glaucoma is an eye disease which is trademarked by high intraocular pressure. Our ophthalmologists can recommend a range of treatment options from eye drop management to laser surgery or filtering surgeries. Additionally, technology in eye care has advanced to include minimally invasive glaucoma surgery techniques which also help regulate eye pressure.
Abnormally colored discharge from your eye could indicate an infection. You might also feel like something is in your eye and notice that your eyes are red and swollen. Our ophthalmology experts can determine the underlying cause of the infection and provide antibiotics or a topical ointment to treat the condition.
