WHAT IS CATARACT CO-MANAGEMENT

At Corben Optometry, we provide Cataract Co-Management services to patients with cataracts. As primary eye care providers, we are often the first to diagnose and notify our patients of cataracts. Leading the co-management effort for our patients is an essential part of our practice. We try our best to establish enduring relationships with our clients by getting a deep understanding of their medical histories. Patients look to us for guidance from the moment we inform them of the presence of a cataract to the final treatment follow-up. We work with some of the leading cataract surgeons in Los Angeles to prove our patients with the best continuity of care.

HOW LONG DOES CO-MANAGEMENT LAST?

This is a good question. Co-management starts when we discover cataracts in the patient. At this time we will thoroughly discuss your condition and treatment options. Some patients may show signs of developing cataracts, but are not yet candidates for surgery. The initial treatment for symptomatic cataracts may include updating your prescription (eyeglasses, contacts, or both). You may also benefit from wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses with specific tints or filters to increase ultraviolet (UV) protection. Green, gray, or pink filters can further decrease the amount of light that enters the eye, improving light scatter. We can also provide you with other special lenses to help with contrast and decrease glare.

When your cataracts are ready for surgery, we will establish which surgeon is best for your condition. Many surgeons are available and picking the right one for you is our priority.
