If you need cataract treatment in the Colorado Springs area, it is available as an outpatient procedure. Modern techniques allow Dr. Haas to remove cataracts at any stage of development. A tiny incision removes the cataract, then a synthetic lens can be inserted into your eye's surface to replace the damaged one.
Eye Care for Glaucoma

Dr. Haas will also recommend preventative measures if he feels that you are at risk of glaucoma. Your condition will be closely monitored; Dr. Haas cares about protecting your vision.
