Eye Surgeries

Eye Surgeries

Dealing with issues related to your eyes or vision can sometimes necessitate surgical intervention for effective treatment. At Naples Eye Physicians in Naples, FL, our experienced ophthalmologist offers a range of eye surgeries aimed at preserving and enhancing vision, addressing various eye conditions and symptoms.

Eye surgeries

Glaucoma Surgery

Glaucoma, characterized by increased intraocular pressure, is a leading cause of vision loss. Glaucoma surgery is designed to alleviate this pressure, protecting the optic nerve and preserving vision. Various surgical procedures are available, and the choice depends on the specific type and severity of glaucoma. The goal of glaucoma surgery is to enhance the drainage of aqueous humor, the fluid inside the eye. Procedures such as trabeculectomy, laser trabeculoplasty, and minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) can effectively manage glaucoma and prevent further vision deterioration.

Cataract Surgery

Cataracts, common with aging, cause clouding of the eye's natural lens, leading to blurred vision. When cataracts significantly impair eyesight, cataract surgery becomes a viable option. During this procedure, the clouded lens is removed and replaced with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). Cataract surgery is a highly successful and routine outpatient procedure. Patients often experience a rapid improvement in vision, and the use of advanced IOLs can address issues like presbyopia, reducing dependence on glasses.


LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) surgery is a popular option for correcting refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. This laser-based procedure reshapes the cornea, allowing light to focus correctly on the retina, resulting in improved vision. LASIK offers the potential for reduced dependence on corrective lenses, providing freedom and convenience. It is essential to undergo a comprehensive eye examination to determine candidacy for LASIK and discuss potential outcomes.

Other Specialized Eye Surgeries

Naples Eye Physicians goes beyond common eye surgeries to provide specialized procedures addressing various eye conditions. These include ptosis repair for drooping eyelids, removal of malignant and benign lesions, and blepharoplasty for cosmetic and functional enhancements of the upper and lower eyelids. These specialized procedures reflect our commitment to offering comprehensive eye care, catering to both medical and aesthetic aspects of eye health.

When to Consider Eye Surgery

Determining when to seek eye surgery depends on various factors, including the nature of the eye condition, its impact on daily life, and the individual's overall health. If diagnosed with an eye disease like glaucoma or experiencing discomfort and visual disturbances, consulting with an ophthalmologist is crucial. Additionally, those considering vision correction options such as LASIK should schedule a consultation to discuss suitability and potential benefits.
