28 Year Old with Bilateral Cataracts gets Renewed Vision with Symphony Torics, LenSx & ORA

Koesha Pullen, an RN with Duke Regional Hospital in Durham, NC discovered she became visually symptomatic with cataracts (either juvenile or early adult onset) in 2012at 22 years old. Her vision declined to best corrected 20/60 and 20/50 in the right and left eyes respectively in 2017. Given her age, lifestyle and career path, Dr. Parisi and Koesha agreed that a full range of vision with limited spectacle dependency would be of tremendous benefit for her. 

“I’ve noticed a tremendous difference in my performance at work and already have a lot more confidence in my job. This was probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.”

June is Cataract Awareness Month

Greenville, SC, June 2017

What is a cataract?
Currently more than 24 million Americans have cataracts. They are the leading cause of blindness worldwide₁ and many people don’t treat them due to fear of eye surgery.
A cataract is a clouding of your eye’s natural lens. Cataracts slowly develop over time as the proteins in the lens start to clump and obscure vision. As the cataract grows, it blocks light causing blurry and dull vision. Typically, cataracts start to develop by age 60, but one in six people over age 40 are affected by cataracts.₂


May is Healthy Vision Month

About 64% of the patients Clemson Eye sees on an annual basis are women. You may be busy, on the go, and caring for your family, but it is important that you make the time to take care of you!
