A Perfect Choice for All Your Eye Care Needs

Cataract & Refractive Surgery, Glaucoma Care & Advanced Implantable Lenses  

At ZIEKEREYE, we offer the most current, leading-edge technology to evaluate and treat the following: 

 

Cataracts

Cataracts occur when the lens inside the eye gets cloudy and thick. Changes in vision resulting from cataract development can range from very subtle to extreme. Increased glare, trouble with night driving and difficulty reading are the most common problems. Cataracts eventually affect almost everyone. The timing of surgical intervention is critical to achieving the best outcome and quality of vision possible. Good timing can also lower the rate of complications and prevent blindness or permanent vision impairment.

LASIK/EPI-LASIK/PRK

LASIK is an elective procedure that may reduce your dependency on glasses and contacts. By performing a simple test Dr. Zieker can determine if you are a candidate for this procedure. It is a safe and effective surgery for most people. At ZIEKEREYE, we use state-of-the-art laser technology to perform the LASIK procedure.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is caused by irregular eye pressure. Since elevated eye pressure isn’t something you can detect on your own, it is important to visit an ophthalmologist regularly to be evaluated, particularly if you have any condition that may make you more prone to developing glaucoma. At ZIEKEREYE, Dr. Zieker and Mr. Clark can treat this condition simply with eyedrops that you can administer yourself. As long as elevated eye pressure is detected in time, blindness from glaucoma may be prevented.

Advanced implantable lenses

Restoring vision after cataract removal

Once your cataracts have been removed, Dr. Zieker will replace the lens of the eye to restore vision. There are several different implantable intraocular lens (IOL) types:

There is no single option that is best for all patients. You must consider your hobbies, activities, lifestyle, work-related tasks, etc. to decide which lens is best for you. Cost and convenience also weigh into the decision, especially in determining how important it is to you to attempt to reduce glasses dependence. Dr. C. Zieker can help you choose which options are in your best interests to pursue. Financing plans for the premium lenses are available.

Screenings

Retinal disease & macular degeneration

What is retinal disease?

The retina is the back portion of the eye containing the cells that respond to light, or photoreceptors. Retinal diseases vary greatly in cause, severity and complexity to diagnose and treat. Common retinal diseases include:

  • Age-related macular degeneration
  • Macular hole
  • Retinal tear
  • Retinal detachment
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Epiretinal membrane

Everyone should be screened on a regular basis for these diseases to ensure they are caught as early as possible and to facilitate treatment. In addition to screening for these diseases, a retinal screening by an ophthalmologist can provide insight into your vascular health, catching signs of damage that otherwise could go undetected.
