Often times when we're dealing with dry-eye patients and glaucoma - which is my area of specialty - drops, medications, are the first line of treatment. Many times, if it's cataract related or advanced glaucoma, we will jump to surgery. And somewhere in between there are many laser treatments that we can utilize to get the patient outcomes that we need - be it control of disease, vision improvement, whatever we need to do to maintain and enhance ocular health. When a patient tells you that, I can't do the things that I normally like to do. I can't read the newspaper. I can't do crossword puzzles. I can't knit, or I have stopped driving - particularly at nighttime. I've changed my activities of daily living because I'm unable to - due to my visual concerns or my visual fears. And you can give them that vision back. You can give them that active lifestyle back. That's extremely gratifying and extremely rewarding.
