Dr. Schoenberg explains the benefits and risks of cataract surgery, the healing process afterwards, and provides an overview of options to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses after surgery. Vision Correction options
Dr. Schoenberg explains the ways he most commonly frees people from their glasses or contact lenses: LASIK, PRK, Visian ICL (Implantable Collagen Lens), and RLE (refractive lens exchange). Fuch’s Dystrophy and DMEK corneal transplant
Dr. Schoenberg explains Fuch’s corneal dystrophy and Descemet’s Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK), the primary surgery used to cure it. YAG Capsulotomy
Dr. Schoenberg explains YAG Capsulotomy, a common laser procedure that may be desired months or years after cataract surgery to improve vision. Superficial Keratectomy treatment for corneal smoothing
Dr. Schoenberg explains superficial keratectomy (SK), a procedure to smooth the cornea. The most common reason to need this procedure is Anterior Basement Membrane Dystrophy (ABMD), which can be a source of blurred vision or discomfort. If needed, he treats before cataract surgery to improve the results. Penetrating Keratoplasty corneal transplant
Dr. Schoenberg explains Penetrating Keratoplasty (PK), a full thickness corneal transplant. In many cases, he can use laser to remove scars or perform a partial thickness transplant, but sometimes this surgical procedure is the best approach to solve the problem.
