Diabetic retinopathy causes problems with your retina, the part of your eye responsible for transferring visual information to your brain for processing. Diabetic retinopathy can cause blood vessels in the retina to leak fluid or bleed, resulting in distorted vision.
Macular degeneration is a deterioration of the central portion of the retina, the inside layer of the eye that records the images we see and sends them through the optic nerve from the eye to the brain for processing. The macula, or the center of the retina, is responsible for focusing central vision in the eye and controls our ability to see and process information.
Cataracts cause a clouding of the lens in the eye, making your vision appear to be foggy. Cataracts are the most common cause of vision loss in people over 40 and are the leading cause of blindness in the world.
Glaucoma occurs from damage to the eye’s optic nerve and can often lead to loss of vision and blindness. To detect glaucoma, our highly trained doctors will perform a proper screening to determine severity, examine the damage, and help you manage your glaucoma with cutting-edge technologies including lasers and minimally-invasive glaucoma surgeries.

With new procedures like Botox® Cosmetic becoming popular in America, medicine has made it possible for ordinary people to transform their appearance. Botox® Cosmetic treatments can be used by people from 18 to 65.
Doctors have found that more women than men are undergoing appearance-altering operations. They admit that perhaps society has a part to play in the female desire to look more youthful.
Results are not radical, but they are dramatic and noticeably apparent within days. Botox® Cosmetic virtually erases these tough lines. It is fast and simple with no downtime or recovery. Overactive people can return to work or normal activity immediately following treatment.
The doctors will determine exactly where to inject Botox® Cosmetic to achieve the best results. No anesthesia is required and the entire procedure takes only minutes. Patients compare the injection to an insect bite. It’s unlikely to develop side effects, although some people develop slight bruising at the injection site, which can be covered with makeup. Other side effect include headache, flu symptoms and nausea.
