Cataract Surgery & LASIK Eye Surgery in South Sacramento

Royo Eye and Laser Center of South Sacramento

The Royo Eye and Laser Center South Sacramento is a member of the NVISION® Eye Center network. Our clinic and staff provide comprehensive eye care solutions in the South Sacramento area. We specialize in laser-assisted cataract eye surgery and LASIK eye surgery, as well as general corrective eye surgery procedures.

Cataract Surgery Procedure

Cataracts cause the natural lens of the eye to become cloudy, leading to a decrease in vision. Cataract surgery is a safe and effective procedure that involves removing the clouded lens and replacing it with lifestyle lenses, also known as premium intraocular lenses (IOLs). This restores clear vision and significantly improves your overall quality of life.

LASIK Surgery, Contoura® Vision LASIK and PRK Surgery

Refractive eye conditions (such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism) affect how light is focused on the retina, leading to vision loss. LASIK surgery can restore clear vision in patients with these conditions, without the need for glasses or contact lenses.

The team of surgeons at the Royo Eye Clinic in South Sacramento are LASIK surgery specialists, with decades of experience performing laser and laser-assisted eye surgeries. Besides traditional corrective LASIK, We also offer Contoura® Vision LASIK (custom LASIK) for patients who require more personalized procedures, as well as PRK Surgery (Photorefractive Keratectomy) for those with thin corneas.

South Sacramento Eye Care Services

Our dedication to patient care goes beyond laser eye surgery to include treatment of chronic eye conditions and diseases that require long-term care and management.

Chronic dry eye, for example, is a very common condition that can be difficult to treat without seeing a specialist. Over-the-counter eye drops may provide temporary relief for a short time, but become ineffective in the long run. Specialized chronic dry eye treatment can be very effective to improve quality tears and avoid long-term damage to the eye and vision.

Serious conditions like glaucoma and macular degeneration can be slowed down with consistent management and regular monitoring. At our clinic, we help patients create a long-term plan to minimize symptoms and maintain quality of life, adjusting treatment to address changes in vision.

We also provide essential services such as refractions, checkups, and prescription lens fittings, facilitated by our team of skilled optometrists across our three office locations.

Contoura® Vision LASIK

Contoura® Vision LASIK?

Contoura® Vision LASIK is an advanced form of LASIK eye surgery that utilizes topography-guided technology to tailor the laser treatment to the unique characteristics of an individual’s cornea. This technology aims to provide a more personalized and precise correction of refractive errors, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Contoura® Vision creates a highly precise and accurate map of a patient’s eyes measuring up to 22,000 unique elevation points on each eye.

Key features of Contoura® Vision LASIK include:

1. Topography-Guided Treatment:
– Contoura® Vision LASIK utilizes detailed corneal mapping or corneal topography to create a highly customized treatment plan. This map captures thousands of data points on the cornea, allowing for a more precise analysis of its shape and irregularities.

2. Personalized Correction:
– The topography-guided technology enables the laser to precisely reshape the cornea based on the unique imperfections detected in the corneal map. This personalized approach aims to address higher-order aberrations, improving not only traditional refractive errors but also the overall quality of vision.

3. Reduced Glare and Halos:
– Contoura® Vision LASIK is designed to reduce the occurrence of visual disturbances such as glare and halos, which can be associated with certain refractive errors. The customized treatment may result in improved night vision and reduced sensitivity to light.

4. Potential for Better Visual Outcomes:
– The goal of Contoura® Vision LASIK is to achieve superior visual outcomes by optimizing the correction based on the individual characteristics of the patient’s cornea.

It’s important to note that the availability of Contoura® Vision LASIK may vary, and not all LASIK centers offer this specific technology. If you are considering LASIK surgery and are interested in Contoura® Vision LASIK, it’s recommended to consult with an experienced refractive surgeon or LASIK eye doctor who can assess your candidacy and discuss the available options for personalized laser vision correction.

PRK Surgery (Photorefractive Keratectomy)

What is PRK Surgery?

PRK Surgery (Photorefractive Keratectomy) is a type of laser eye surgery that is used to correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. PRK is an alternative to LASIK eye surgery and is particularly suitable for individuals who may not be candidates for LASIK due to certain corneal characteristics.

Overview of the PRK surgery process:

  1. Corneal Epithelium Removal:
    • In PRK, the surgeon begins by removing the thin outer layer of the cornea called the epithelium. This can be done using an alcohol solution, a special brush, or a laser.
  2. Laser Reshaping of the Cornea:
    • Once the epithelium is removed, a laser is used to precisely reshape the cornea. The laser ablates or removes microscopic amounts of corneal tissue based on the patient’s refractive error. The goal is to correct the curvature of the cornea and improve the focus of light on the retina.
  3. Healing Process:
    • Unlike LASIK, where a corneal flap is created, PRK does not involve creating a flap. Instead, the corneal surface is allowed to regenerate naturally. The healing process involves the growth of new epithelial cells over the treated area.
  4. Post-operative Care:
    • Following PRK surgery, patients are given medicated eye drops to aid in the healing process and prevent infection. Recovery may take a bit longer compared to LASIK, and patients may experience temporary discomfort during the initial days.

Key considerations for PRK surgery include:

  • Corneal Thickness: PRK may be a suitable option for individuals with thinner corneas who may not be ideal candidates for LASIK.
  • Occupational Considerations: PRK may be recommended for individuals with occupations or lifestyles that carry a risk of corneal injury, as it eliminates the creation of a corneal flap.
  • Healing Time: The initial visual recovery may take longer with PRK compared to LASIK. Patients typically experience optimal vision several weeks after the procedure.

PRK is a well-established and effective procedure for vision correction, and its suitability depends on individual factors. It’s important to consult with an experienced refractive surgeon or eye care professional to determine the most appropriate laser eye surgery option based on your eye health and lifestyle.

Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)

Refractive lens exchange (RLE), is when a clear lens is implanted to replace your eye’s natural lens to correct your vision.

This procedure is often used for pre-cataract patients, as a preventative vision correction solution. Refractive lens exchange (RLE) can also correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Pterygium Surgery

Pterygium surgery is performed under topical anesthesia on an outpatient basis.

We offer the latest and most advanced lifestyle lens on the market.
