These lenses use computer-controlled surfacing equipment that is much more precise than conventional tools. The results are sharper image quality, better peripheral vision, and reduction of glare and halos for better night vision. There are a broad range of materials, lens styles and almost all eyeglass wearers are good candidates for digital lenses. Be sure to discuss these lenses with our experienced opticians.

Dr Weingarten performs laser surgery for glaucoma treatment. He uses the Lumenis SLT in his Rochester office. SLT (Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty) has been shown to deliver powerful intraocular pressure reduction without causing any thermal damage. It can be used as primary therapy or as adjunctive to medical treatment. The majority of glaucoma patients have been shown to be noncompliant with taking their glaucoma prescriptions. SLT has been shown to reduce patient dependence on topical medications and save them money. If you live in the Detroit Metropolitan area (Rochester, Auburn Hills, Lake Orion, Troy, Bloomfield Hills, Utica, Sterling Heights) and are interested in finding out if you’re a candidate for SLT treatment, call our office at 248-650-2255 for a glaucoma evaluation.
Liked Outcomes for Femto (Bladeless) and Microkeratomes
A study in the American Journal Ophthalmology (2010;149:785-93) compared visual acuity and corneal higher order aberrations after LASIK surgery with flaps made by a femtosecond (Intralase) laser to one created using a mechanical microkeratome. The results did not show any differences in visual acuity outcomes or induced aberrations. This study shows that mechanical keratomes will continue to be used favorably in refractive surgery. If you are interested in LASIK/LASEK/PRK refractive laser surgery, and would like a FREE EVALUATION with Dr. Mark Weingarten, a board certified ophthalmologist and laser surgeon at Rochester Eye Care call 248-650-2255.
Diabetic Retinopathy is a leading cause of legal blindness among adults 20-74 years old in the United States. A study in JAMA (8/11) found that nearly 30 percent of diabetics over age 40 have diabetic retinopathy, with about 4 percent of this group having vision threatening retinopathy. Additional risk factors include male sex, higher HbA1c level, longer duration, use of insulin and higher systolic blood pressure. If you are diabetic, you should have your eyes examined by an ophthalmologist at least once per year and more frequently if diabetic retinopathy is present. Dr. Mark Weingarten is aboard certified ophthalmologist at Rochester Eye Care. If you are in need of eye care in the Detroit Metropolitan area or Oakland County, you can call his office at 248-650-2255 to schedule a diabetic eye evaluation.
Glaucoma is a leading cause of preventable blindness. It’s estimated that millions of people have glaucoma and are unaware of it. That’s because glaucoma usually does not cause any pain or any other noticeable symptoms. Although most glaucoma cannot be cured, it can be detected early and controlled.
Rochester Eye Care has a comfortable and rapid test called the GDxVCC that can detect glaucoma early before patients experience any vision loss. The test is performed very easily by simply looking into an instrument and looking at a comfortable light. The GDxVCC acquires an image of the optic nerve and retina in the back of the eye in less than a minute. It measures the thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer which is recognized as one of the most sensitive means to detect glaucoma. Dr Mark Weingarten is a board certified ophthalmologist and specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma. He has helped numerous people throughout Michigan and the Detroit Metropolitan area. If you would like to consult with Dr Weingarten for a glaucoma evaluation, call our office at 248-650-2255 and schedule an appointment.
Cataract Surgery in High Myopes Cataract Surgery in High Myopes

This is reassuring for these patients who are considering cataract surgery so that they will not be so afraid of having the surgery. Dr Weingarten is a skilled, board certified ophthalmic surgeon who specializes in small incision cataract surgery. If you live in the Metro Detroit area (Rochester, Troy, Bloomfield Hills, Shelby) his office is conveniently located near you. If you are considering cataract surgery you can call his office at 248-650-2255 to set up a cataract evaluation to discuss this with him.
