Vision Problems We Treat

The Sansum Clinic Laser Eye Center offers the safest, most accurate and effective laser eye surgery solutions. Our renowned laser eye surgeon, Dr. Douglas Katsev is certified in all of the latest technologies, including Intralase and Advanced CustomVue, to provide superior correction for patients with a full range of common vision problems..

Vision Conditions We Treat

Specialties include:

Nearsightedness Nearsightedness (Myopia): occurs when the cornea is too curved or the eye is too long. This causes light to focus in front of the retina, resulting in blurry distance vision.
Farsightedness Farsightedness (Hyperopia): occurs when the cornea is too flat in relation to the length of the eye. This causes light to focus at a point beyond the retina, resulting in blurry close vision and sometimes blurry distance vision as well.
Astigmatism Astigmatism: occurs when the cornea is shaped like a football (more curved in one direction than the other) and often occurs with nearsightedness and farsightedness. This causes light to focus on more than one point on the retina, resulting in blurry and distorted vision.

We also specialize in treating presbyopia, a condition in which there is diminished power of the eye focusing near to far distances. This arises from loss of elasticity of the lens of the eye as is typical after age 40. Laser surgery can overcome this condition if you opt for "monovision." You should discuss this procedure carefully with your Sansum Clinic eye care professional.
