LASIK & Cataract
As a board-certified ophthalmologist, I am trained to provide you with all your eye care needs - medical and surgical. My goal is to protect your sight through early diagnosis and treatment of eye conditions with state-of-the-art equipment.
A cataract is a progressive clouding of the normally clear natural lens in your eye. The blurry lens in your eye can cause issues with night driving, color perception, reading, or performing daily activities. This develops over a number of years, causing your vision to become more blurry and distorted as the cataract increases in severity.
Most cataracts develop slowly, increasing over time and causing your vision to become more distorted and blurry the longer the cataract remains untreated. During the beginning of cataract development, your vision can be improved by using stronger light or eyeglasses to correct your distorted vision. If your vision begins to impair your ability to perform daily activities, it may be time to consider cataract surgery.
Fortunately, cataract surgery with Mohsin Cheema, M.D. is an incredibly safe and comfortable experience. Dr. Cheema offers a number of intraocular lens options to replace the clouded natural lens in your eye, restoring your vision and improving your eyesight.
Utilizing the latest technology available in the ophthalmology industry, Dr. Cheema and his team offer a number of intraocular lens (IOL) options to our patients, including the state-of-the-art AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL, AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL, and TECNIS® Symfony® IOL.
Dr. Cheema and his staff use a patient-centered standard of care that ensures each individual patient receives the best possible treatment for their specific needs.learn more about Cataract Surgery
Glaucoma is known as the silent thief of sight as it often leads to a progressive, irreversible loss of sight without any symptoms. Surprising to most patients, glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness for individuals over 60 years of age, not cataracts.
Glaucoma is a disease that affects the optic nerve in your eye. This is caused when the fluid in your eye builds up around the optic nerve at the front of the eye. Much like a clogged drain, the fluid causes increased pressure in your eye without being able to drain properly.
There are two major types of glaucoma, each with their own specific treatments. The first, and most common, is primary open-angle glaucoma. This is caused when the fluid in your eye cannot drain properly, causing an increase in pressure that can damage your eye’s optic nerve.
The second major type of glaucoma is angle-closure glaucoma (also known as closed-angle glaucoma, or narrow-angle glaucoma). This occurs when the patients’ iris is close to the drainage angle of their eye. The iris can block the drainage angle of the eye, causing the pressure to build rapidly.

LASIK Eye Surgery
According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the minimum age a person can undergo LASIK eye surgery is 18. Additionally, the eye doctors at Cheema MD Eye Care recommend patients have a consistent prescription for either their eyeglasses or contact lens for at least 12 months before considering surgery to avoid the risk of their vision changing afterward. The up-front cost of LASIK may scare some patients into spending more money over time on contact lenses and eyeglasses.

Refractive Lens Exchange
Often referred to as lens replacement surgery or clear lens extraction, refractive lens exchanges are a great alternative for patients who may not be ideal candidates for LASIK eye surgery. A lens exchange replaces your naturally existing lens in your eye with an artificial intraocular lens or IOL. Our eye doctors will work with you to help determine which IOL is best for your needs. Refractive lens exchanges are an effective alternative to LASIK and often results in patients being free from eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Cataracts are the most common vision disorder among patients over 50 years of age. The natural lens in your eye may become progressively more blurry as you age, impairing your vision, and disrupting day-to-day activities. This is curable through cataract surgery, a quick and comfortable surgical procedure that leaves you with restored clear vision. Fortunately, the eye doctors and ophthalmologists at Cheema MD Eye Care have a long-standing history of providing the leading cataract surgery procedures to patients in the Kingston and Hudson Valley, New York area.
