    What is a cardiac catheterization, or angiogram?

    This test is usually performed in patients with chest pain, shortness of breath, positive stress test, or people with suspected heart valve abnormalities. The procedure involves placement of a catheter in the groin and injection of contrast dye into the coronary arteries and heart itself. The physician can visualize blockages in the arteries or abnormalities of the heart muscle or valves on specialized X-ray equipment. The procedure usually takes around 15-30 minutes.

    What is involved in cataract surgery?

    Cataract surgery is one of the most common operations performed and one of the safest and most effective. Surgery involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with a substitute lens. If cataracts are present in both eyes, they cannot be removed at the same time. Your physician will need to perform surgery on each eye separately.

    Cataracts are generally removed in one of two ways:

      Phacoemulsification (Also called small incision cataract surgery.)

      This, most common, type of cataract removal procedure involves the surgeon making a small incision on the side of the cornea - the clear, dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye - where a tiny probe emits ultrasound waves to soften and break up the cloudy center of the lens. The cataract is then removed by suction through the same incision.
      Extracapsular Surgery

      During this procedure, a longer incision is made on the side of the cornea to remove the hard center of the lens; the remainder of the lens is then removed by suction.

    What is involved in a hearing evaluation?

    The first step in a hearing evaluation will be a detailed case history regarding your hearing health. Your answers, as well as any additional information, will provide valuable background information. Next, a diagnostic hearing evaluation will take place using listening and measurement devices. After testing is complete, your audiologist will review the results. If a medical condition is discovered or suspected, you will be referred to a medical doctor for treatment and consultation. If the test results indicate you would benefit from the use of hearing instruments, various options most appropriate for your hearing needs will be discussed.

    What is the Crystalens?

    When a cataract is removed and replaced with a standard intraocular lens the cloudienss is eliminated, but there is no ability to accommodate and adjust focus for both distance and near vision. Therefore a person with a standard intraocular lens can regain clear vision but will usually need glasses at least for reading. The Crystalens is an intraocular lens that, unlike a standard intraocular lens is designed to recreate your accommodation and reduce or eliminate wearing glasses.
