TAMPA, Fla., April 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As the baby boomer generation continues to age and the group increases in size, more and more people are facing challenges related to aging eyes and cataracts. Widely considered a very active group of people, baby boomers in Tampa are looking for options that not only help restore the lens clouding caused by cataracts, but also improve their overall vision.
To serve patients in the Tampa area, Dr. Ana Maria Oliva, an experienced cataract surgeon, has recently begun accepting cataract patients at her Visium Eye Institute® office in Tampa at 2202 North West Shore Blvd, Suite 100.
"Oftentimes patients believe their vision will improve on its own or they don't realize they have a cataract issue until the problem is very serious," said Dr. Ana Maria Oliva, surgeon at Visium Eye Institute. "At Visium Eye Institute, we work closely with our patients to offer custom options for cataracts, as well as vision issues such as astigmatism, farsightedness and presbyopia all at one time."
Throughout her career, Dr. Oliva has operated with several of the world's leading eye surgeons, and has completed the most advanced cornea and refractive surgical training available. Her work at Visium Eye Institute allows her to provide her patients with complete vision solutions that not only removes the cataract but can also reduce or eliminate the patient’s dependence on distance and even reading glasses.
"Many patients express the desire to restore their vision so that they can resume their normal work and recreational activities," said Dr. Oliva. "When we explain they have the option to remove the cataracts and potentially eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses they are truly excited for the possibilities."
