Custom Cataract Surgery

Custom Cataract Surgery Modern cataract surgery in the average patient now takes about 20 minutes or less, with the patient resuming normal activity shortly after surgery. The incision to remove the cataract is so small that stitches are usually unnecessary and healing is largely completed in a week or two. With the advent of microsurgery and the intraocular lens implant , cataracts no longer have to "ripen" and can be removed at any stage.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve, which becomes damaged from a build up of fluid and pressure inside the eye. Although the earliest sign of glaucoma is usually elevated intraocular pressure, many patients do not demonstrate this elevation but sustain optic nerve damage from what is considered a normal pressure. Detection of this and other types of glaucoma rely on detecting a change in the shape of the optic nerve and a loss of parts of your field of vision.

Retina

Retina In the center of the retina, similar to the central bulls-eye of a target, is the macula, the most sensitive part of the retina and the part that gives precise vision for reading and driving. Some common disorders of the retina include macular degeneration, "floaters" and retinal detachment. Many patients with macular degeneration can now be treated with vitamins and medication to avert severe vision loss.

Julius ShulmanJulius Shulman, M.D. is a Board Certified Ophthalmologist and Assistant Professor of Ophthalmolgy at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital. Since completing his residency in 1975, Dr. Shulman has performed over 10,000 surgical procedures. An early interest in cataract surgery led Dr. Shulman to pioneer the first cataract and intraocular lens implant operation at Mt. Sinai. His first book, Cataracts, The Complete Guide (Simon and Schuster, 1984, revised St. Martin's Press, 1993) won a Bronze National Health Information Award in 1994.

In 1986 Dr. Julius Shulman became one of the first physicians in New York to perform surgery to correct nearsightedness. The development of the excimer laser has revolutionized the correction of nearsightedness, astigmatism and farsightedness, and now Laser Vision Correction has become a main area of concentration in his practice. Dr. Shulman's second book, No More Glasses (iUniverse, 2007), reflects the goal of modern laser vision correction and has been completely revised to include the latest advances in laser technology.
