Advanced Treatments for Cataracts
Free Health Lecture
LASER SURGERY MAY FREE YOU FROM WEARING GLASSES
Vision that is clouded by cataracts can put a damper on life. Fortunately, with recent innovations, you can enjoy clear vision once again—and potentially ditch your glasses after the procedure.
Advanced laser surgery removes cataracts with exceptional precision and accuracy and, at the same time, can correct astigmatism. When combined with the latest lens implants, this can leave you with near perfect vision.
Our speaker is Brian Nichols, MD, PhD, who has more than 20 years experience in successfully treating cataracts. He’ll describe how laser cataract surgery and other recent advances can help those with nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia (age-related vision loss) or astigmatism stop relying on glasses or contact lenses.
When: Tuesday, Sept. 1, from 11 a.m. to noon
Where: Calvary Bible Church, 3245 Kalmia Ave., Boulder
Reservations required: 303-441-0580 or bchlectures.org/cataracts
