Cataract Surgery & Ophthalmic Services in Erie, Pennsylvania

Brent E. Walker M.D. P.C. of Erie, Pennsylvania, helps you achieve clearer vision with cataract surgery and other ophthalmic services. Clear things up fast by scheduling an appointment with our ophthalmologist. Dr. Walker performs cataract and laser surgery as outpatient procedures at St. Vincent's state-of-the-art surgery center.
 

Cataracts

If you are experiencing blurred vision, glare, foggy vision, or halos around headlights, you may have a cataract—a clouding of the lens in your eyes. Cataract surgery is a relatively safe and effective procedure that can restore your vision. Dr. Walker uses the latest advances in small incision, no stitch, no patch cataract surgery to remove the clouded lens and replace it with a permanent artificial lens.

Glaucoma

Like cataracts, glaucoma is a problem that usually affects people over the age of 40. It can come on gradually with few symptoms or suddenly. Glaucoma is usually an abnormally high fluid pressure within the eye, which can eventually cause blindness if left untreated.
With early detection, we will be able to treat it and hopefully save your sight. That is why we suggest patients over 40 come in for a full exam every 2 years. If you experience sudden, severe eye pain associated with blurred vision you should call immediately for emergency treatment.

Laser

Receive effective treatment for glaucoma and secondary membranes / cataracts with YAG, SLTP and argon laser surgery from Dr. Walker. Although laser can be used to break up a cataract, surgery is still required for cataract removal, YAG laser surgery may be required after cataract surgery to clear up a cloudy membrane that may form within the eye. Some refer to this as a secondary cataract.

Prevention

Many eye diseases can now be diagnosed before you are aware of them. Early diagnosis and treatment can save your sight. Many times, disorders can go unnoticed because of good vision in the opposite eye.
It is important for you to check one eye at a time to determine if your vision differs. If you notice a change, schedule an eye evaluation, and encourage others to do the same. Remember, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
