What is 20/20?

20/20 refers to how well a person can see at a distance of 20 feet. It is a term used to define normal “perfect” visual acuity, the clarity and sharpness of an object at a distance of 20 feet.

Often eye tests are performed in small consulting rooms that are certainly not 20 feet in length. Fortunately, with modern technology, the doctor can use a series of mirrors to project the letters onto the screen to give the same effect as at a distance of 20 feet.

Am I a good candidate for laser eye surgery?

Most people are suitable candidates for laser eye surgery. Those who are pregnant, have diabetes, keratoconus and some other rare conditions may not be candidates, but for most people the choice is theirs as to whether they would like to have laser eye surgery. People under 18 should wait as their eyes are probably still changing.

I have cataracts. Will laser surgery correct this issue?

Cataracts affect almost 22 million Americans who are over 40, and by the age of 80 more than half of all Americans develop cataracts so this is not a rare condition.

Cataracts develop very slowly and are most likely to be detected early on during a routine eye examination. As the natural lens of the eye becomes cloudier, sufferers may begin to have vision that is too blurry to do the things that they like to do everyday despite having the best glasses or contact lenses.

Once Dr. Hecht has decided you need cataract surgery, you will receive a thorough examination.

Before surgery, your eye will be measured to determine the correct power of the new intraocular lens implant that will be inserted into the eye during the surgery. Tests will also be done to ensure there are no other eye problems that may affect the new lens implant.
