Baltimore Eye Doctors Work to Address Preventable Blindness & Visual Impairment Vision loss and eye disorders can present some of the most costly financial and social challenges for our greater Baltimore community. “The effects of visual impairment, blindness and disability can be observed in all age groups. Yet, so many eye problems and disorders simply go undiagnosed,” counseled Arturo Betancourt, M.D. Medical Director of Baltimore Washington Eye Center. According to a study from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) four major eye disorders-cataract, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and macular degeneration, along with uncorrected refractive error (URE) cause the vast majority of vision loss and visual impairment in the United States. Some 18 million Americans suffer vision loss, including impairment or blindness due to an undiagnosed or untreated condition. Of this, 15.9 million or 88% is due to uncorrected refractive error (URE), and an 8% is due to cataract. “The shame is that uncorrected refractive error can be easily addressed with a routine eye exam and prescription eyeglasses and in almost all instances, vision loss from cataract can be restored with cataract surgery and lens implants,” explained Brad Spagnolo, M.D., Director of Refractive Surgery. “This is in contrast to as many as 700,000 patients who may have some vision loss due to undiagnosed or untreated diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration or glaucoma where often their vision cannot be recovered. Our mandate for early detection, diagnosis and treatment of these eye diseases is clear.” “While cataract, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and macular degeneration are certainly more common with increasing age, the negative effects of uncorrected refractive error such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism on school performance and learning can be quite noticeable,” explained Dr. Shari Strier, Director of Clinical Services at Baltimore Washington Eye Center. “We know that more than 60 million Americans are at risk for vision loss, yet only about half of those actually visited an eye doctor in the last 12 months. We really need to regularly see those patients who are at risk, especially those who have a family history of diabetes, glaucoma or macular degeneration as well as children in order to make real headway in decreasing preventable blindness and visual impairment.” Early detection, diagnosis and treatment where necessary are the keys to addressing preventable blindness and decrease the incidence of vision loss and visual impairment.

Brief clip of white cataract removal....video picks up with half of the cataract already removed. Clip ends with complete removal and just prior to insertion of intraocular implant. The cataract in this case was very dense.....similar to chalk. Check back soon to see implant placement. The patient went from seeing only hand motions to seeing well enough to drive.
