Lasik Eye Surgery
LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is one of the most popular vision correction procedures and is FDA-approved. Getting LASIK with Dr. Hecht in one of his safe and comfortable offices is one of the best ways to improve your vision.
Just what is a cataract? A cataract is a cloudy lens in the eye. A healthy lens is clear and allows light to pass to the back of the eye. A cataract blocks some of the light. The clouding of the lens from the cataract makes it increasingly difficult to see. Dr. Hecht performs many types of vision correction surgeries including cataract surgery.
Macular degeneration is a leading cause of vision loss in Americans 60 and older. This eye disease gradually destroys sharp, central vision. Your central vision is essential for seeing objects clearly and for tasks such as reading and driving.
First, we should explain just what glaucoma is. Glaucoma is a group of diseases that damage the eye’s optic nerve that can result in vision loss and blindness. The good news is that you can protect your vision against serious loss with early detection and treatment with Dr. Hecht.
Diabetes is an inability of the body to produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that removes sugar from the blood and puts it into cells where it can be used for energy. Without enough insulin, there is too much sugar in your blood. It’s like having a full tank of gas but no key; you have the fuel you need, but can’t access it.
“I was a good candidate for LASIK surgery which was really great because I’ve had terrible eyesight since high school. I was so used to having problems with my vision. Dr. Hecht is so skilled he found a great balance for my eyesight. Even the next morning I could see better than when I was a little kid. It was a miracle. Dr. Hecht looks at me like an individual.” — Sarah K.
“He changed my life. Being an actor. I found that my sight wasn’t what it used to be. I couldn’t see the lines. It made me feel uncomfortable. The procedure took 20 minutes. It changed my life. Made me see like a kid again. Thank you, Dr. Hecht.” — Louie C.
“Dr. Hecht did wonders for my eyes. I knew I was having cataracts. The right one was giving me problems, and he put in the Crystalens. It was so good, I said, ‘Let’s do the other one.’ I can see so much better. I can see 100% better. I had no pain. It was wonderful. I was so happy with him I would recommend to anybody.” – Jim H.
“I went in to talk to Dr. Hecht about LASIK surgery because I had my doubts about it. He explained it thoroughly and everything went exactly as he said it would be. It was smooth. But since the surgery everything is great and I will be forever grateful to Dr. Hecht.” — Kenny P.
