Cataract Surgery

Using the most advanced technology available, Conrad Eye Centers is your solution to cataracts.

Did you know cataract surgery is one of the safest and most common procedures for people over the age of 50 in the United States? Cataracts are cloudy painless opacities in the crystalline lens of the eye. Most cataracts are caused by aging, although trauma, diabetes, certain drugs and smoking are known causes of cataracts. Should you develop cataracts, Dr. Conrad will personally discuss your options and track the progression of your cataracts. When it is time to have them removed, Dr. Conrad is a skilled and experienced cataract surgeon.

Chalazion/Stye Excision

Through quick and safe in-office procedures Conrad Eye Center is Louisvilleā€™s solution to painful or irritating styes and chalazions.

A chalazion is a blocked eyelid gland. It is typically a painless bump on the eyelid. Without treatment a chalazion can take months to heal itself, but a simple excision procedure performed under local anesthetic in our office can bring you relief in just a few days.

Unlike a chalazion a stye is an infected eyelid gland usually around the edges of the eyelids. A similar procedure is used to excise the infected area under local anesthesia.
