Cataracts are one of the most common eye conditions in the United States today. Cataracts blur and distort vision, dull colors, and make daily activities more difficult. With thousands being affected each year, cataract surgery is constantly advancing and improving. Laser cataract surgery is the most technologically advanced cataract removal method available, and at Kelly Eye Center in Raleigh, we strive to offer our patients the best care around. If you are suffering from cataracts, call Kelly Eye in Raleigh to book your appointment today!
In order to keep you in the best eye health possible, our doctors at Kelly Eye Center offer routine eye examinations. Eye examinations are very important to your overall eye health, and are able to detect diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, retinal issues and much more. If you are due for your routine eye examination, Kelly Eye Center in Raleigh is here for you! Give us a call today to schedule your appointment.
Glaucoma is often referred to as the “silent thief of sight”. This is because glaucoma can develop with no symptoms, and once it causes damage to vision, there is no restoring it. This condition is very common, especially in our older patients. Fortunately, glaucoma is easily detectable through routine eye examinations. If glaucoma is caught early on, there may be little to no vision loss. If you are due for your next glaucoma screening, Kelly Eye Center in Raleigh is here to help! Call us today to schedule your glaucoma screening.
