Cataracts are a natural part of the aging process, caused by the hardening of proteins in the eye. During cataract surgery, the clouded lens of the eye is removed and replaced with an artificial lens, called an IOL. Carolina Eye Associates offers advanced surgical techniques and premium lenses for optimal vision outcomes.

LASIK vision correction can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Our LASIK surgeons correct refractive errors by reshaping the corneal tissue in the eye, which allows light to focus correctly. LASIK aims to improve vision and may reduce dependence on glasses and contact lenses.
