OPHTHALMOLOGY

 Ophthalmologist Dr. Ragh Sastry

Dr. Raghunand Sastry MD, FACS Ophthalmologist

Dr. Ragh Sastry and the Center for Eye Care and Cosmetic Surgery have been serving the San Francisco Bay Area with Offices in San Jose and Morgan Hill for the past decade. There is a miss spelled version of Ophthalmologist. Opthamologist without the added “h and l” This is more common than the correct version Ophthalmologist. To keep our website effective, This post is about the misspelled Opthamologist and the correctly spelled Ophthalmologist, because The Center for Eye Care and Cosmetic Surgery wants your business no matter how you spell it. But we also would like to do our part for proper spelling of Ophthalmologist.

Dr. Ragh Sastry is an MD, FACS, the Ophthalmologist in The Center for Eye Care and Cosmetic Surgery in San Jose or Morgan Hill. But he is not the misspelled Opthamologist and does not practice misspelled opthamology.

The internet will someday help people get the spelling right. But for now we must accept both spelling since the misspelled is used much than the correctly spelled.

To find out more about the meaning of this word We recommend Wikipedia for answers.

Ophthalmologist Link says

Ophthalmology  is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eye. An ophthalmologist is a specialist in medical and surgical eye problems. Since ophthalmologists perform operations on eyes, they are both surgical and medical specialists.

Wikipedia on Contact Lenses

A contact lens, or simply contact, is a thin lens placed directly on the surface of the eye. Contact lenses are considered medical devices and can be worn to correct vision, or for cosmetic or therapeutic reasons. In 2004, it was estimated that 125 million people (2%) use contact lenses worldwide, including 28 to 38 million in the United States. In 2010, worldwide contact lens market was estimated at $6.1 billion, while the U.S. soft lens market is estimated at $2.1 billion. Some have estimated that the global market will reach $11.7 billion by 2015. As of 2010, the average age of contact lens wearers globally was 31 years old and two thirds of wearers were female.

People choose to wear contact lenses for many reasons. Aesthetics and cosmetics are often motivating factors for people who would like to avoid wearing glasses or would like to change the appearance of their eyes.  Other people wear contacts for functional or optical reasons. When compared with spectacles, contact lenses typically provide better peripheral vision, and do not collect moisture such as rain, snow, condensation, or sweat. This makes them ideal for sports and other outdoor activities. Contact lens wearers can also wear sunglasses, goggles, or other eyewear of their choice without having to fit them with prescription lenses or worry about compatibility with glasses. Additionally, there are conditions such as keratoconus and aniseikonia that are typically corrected better by contacts than by glasses.

San José (/ˌsæn hˈz/; Spanish: St. Joseph) is the third-largest city in California, the tenth-largest in the United States,  and the county seat of Santa Clara County. San Jose is the largest city within Silicon Valley, which is a major component of the greater Bay Area. It is the largest city in Northern California.

San Jose
San Jose

San Jose was founded on November 29, 1777, as El Pueblo de San José de Guadalupe, the first civilian town in the Spanish colony of Nueva California.  The city served as a farming community to support Spanish military installations at San Francisco and Monterey. When California gained statehood in 1850, San Jose served as its first capital.

After more than 150 years as a small farming community, the San Jose area in the mid-20th century contained some of the last undeveloped land near San Francisco Bay. It then began to experience rapid population growth, much of it coming from veterans returning from World War II. San Jose then continued its aggressive expansion during the 1950s and 1960s by annexing more land area. The rapid growth of the high-technology and electronics industries further accelerated the transition from an agricultural center, to an urbanized metropolitan area.

By the 1990s, San Jose’s location within the booming local technology industry earned the city the nickname “Capital of Silicon Valley”. San Jose is now considered to be a global city,  and notable for its affluence, and high cost of living. The U.S. Census Bureau reported the population of the city to be 945,942 in 2010.

Cataract Surgery, and Blepharoplasty –Offered by Dr. Sastry

Serving San Jose Morgan Hill and Gilroy

Cataract Surgery, and Blepharoplasty are offered by Dr. Ragh Sastry. We offers a wide range of ophthalmologic care, including cataract surgery, glaucoma treatment, and blepharoplasty at his San Jose office. Patients in Morgan Hill, Gilroy, Palo Alto, and elsewhere in the bay area come to the Center for Eye Care & Cosmetic Surgery for the most advanced eye care available.

Cataract Surgery

As your eyes age, you will likely encounter decreased visual acuity and focusing ability. One of the most common of these conditions is the cataract, which occurs when the eye’s natural lens undergoes chemical changes that cause it to become cloudy. A cloudy lens cannot effectively focus light on the retina; the result is blurred or even obscured vision.

The only way to treat a cataract is through surgery. Dr. Sastry uses a cataract surgery technique at his San Jose office that requires only a tiny incision. Through this incision, he removes the faulty lens and replaces it with a safe, synthetic lens. Once the lens has been successfully implanted, there is no need for sutures, as the small incision will heal itself quickly.

Most of Dr. Sastry’s cataract surgery patients from San Jose and the surrounding bay area are pleased to find that they have 20/20 vision within just a few days of the procedure. As with any surgical procedure, there is a risk of complications. In most cases, however, this risk is far outweighed by the improvement in vision and quality of life experienced by patients who choose to undergo the procedure.

Glaucoma Treatment

In a healthy eye, fluid fills the eye at the same rate at which drains, resulting in constant pressure. If the drainage system gets blocked, the pressure inside the eye increases, resulting in a condition called glaucoma that can damage the optic nerve. If this damage is permanent, visual information cannot be properly sent to the brain; glaucoma patients often experience “blind spots” or even complete blindness.

Dr. Sastry offers glaucoma treatment at his San Jose location, serving Morgan Hill, Gilroy and Palo Alto. Treatment for glaucoma varies depending on the cause of drainage problems, but can range from medicated eye drops to laser surgery. Damage from glaucoma is often serious and permanent. Regular testing is the best way to detect glaucoma. To schedule a glaucoma test or talk about treatment, contact the Morgan Hill or San Jose location of the Center for Eye Care & Cosmetic Surgery.

Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

In addition to performing cosmetic eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, San Jose doctor Ragh Sastry also uses blepharoplasty to correct a number of medical conditions, including entropion, ectropion, ptosis, and certain eyelid tumors.

Entropion (turning inward of the eyelid) and ectropion (turning outward of the eyelid) are both conditions most often caused by aging or certain injuries. Ptosis is the medical term for drooping of the upper eyelid; once the eyelid obscures vision, the problem becomes medical in addition to cosmetic. Blepharoplasty, available at the San Jose Center for Eye Care & Cosmetic Surgery, can be used to correct entropion, ectropion, and ptosis by removing excess skin and correcting placement of some muscles.

Squamous and basal cell carcinomas, the eyelid tumors treatable with blepharoplasty, often occur in Dr. Sastry’s elderly, fair-skinned San Jose patients. Often found in the lower eyelid, eyelid tumors are often very successfully treated with surgery when found early. As a result, regular eye checkups are the best way to avoid needing blepharoplasty for eyelid tumors.

If you do need blepharoplasty, Dr. Sastry can probably perform your surgery in his office surgical suite, using advanced anesthetic techniques and radio frequency technology. To learn more about blepharoplasty, contact the San Jose or Morgan Hill office of Dr. Sastry to schedule a consultation.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy refers to any of the disorders caused by diabetes that damage to the retina, or area of the eye upon which light is focused. Depending on the cause and severity of diabetic retinopathy, vision blurriness or even blindness could occur.

The first stage of the disease is called nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR), or background retinopathy. The blood vessels that serve the retina leak fluid or blood, causing the retina to swell. Mild cases of NPDR usually do not affect vision acuity.

Macular edema and macular ischemia are the secondary phases of diabetic retinopathy and the most common causes of vision loss in diabetic patients. The macula is the small area of the retina responsible for seeing small details. When the leaking blood vessels of the retina cause the macula to swell, central vision loss occurs. Laser treatment can often be used to control vision loss caused by macular edema.

Macular ischemia occurs when the blood vessels close up entirely, cutting off nutrition to the macula. Rather than losing their sight completely, patients with macular ischemia will instead experience blurry vision. There is currently no viable treatment for this condition.

Proliferative diabetic retinopathy, or PDR, occurs when the retina grows new, fragile blood vessels to compensate for blood vessels that have closed off. These new vessels tend to leak dangerous amounts of fluid and blood into the eye, causing obscured vision due to the opaque material floating in the eye. If scar tissue forms around the blood vessels, the retina may become distorted or even detached.

In many cases, Dr. Sastry can perform surgery to correct the problems caused by all phases of diabetic retinopathy. Retinopathy can cause serious vision loss very quickly. Along with standard cataract and glaucoma monitoring, diabetic patients should discuss possible retinopathy treatment and surgery options every time they visit the San Jose office of Dr. Sastry, near Morgan Hill, Gilroy and Palo Alto.

Tear Duct and Tearing Problems

Tears are essential to the health of your eyes. Too much tearing, however, can cause infections in the lacrimal sac, or area where tears are produced. Excess tearing is usually caused by blocked tear ducts, which may be the result of nose surgery, sinus surgery, or facial trauma.

The surgery to clear blocked lacrimal ducts is called dacryocystorhinostomy, or DCR. Depending on your condition, Dr. Sastry may choose to use one of several surgical techniques, all of which have the intended outcome of creating a new passage for tears to travel from the lacrimal sac to the inner nose.

In addition to performing blepharoplasty, cataract surgery, glaucoma treatment, and the other procedures outlined above, San Jose and Morgan Hill area surgeon Ragh Sastry is fully versed in a wide range of cornea and eye problems, including pink eye (conjunctivitis) and growths such as pterygiums and pingueculas. Whether you need advice about diabetic retinopathy or simply a new prescription for your glasses, the Center for Eye Care & Cosmetic Surgery can help.
