More Cataract Treatment Options Now Available in Rockville

May 7, 2012

ROCKVILLE, Md., May 7, 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 Rockville 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 Rockville area, Dr. Michael Summerfield, an experienced cataract surgeon, has recently begun accepting cataract patients at his Visium Eye Institute® office at 800 King Farm Blvd., Suite 135.

“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. Summerfield, 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.”

Dr. Summerfield is the Training Director for Georgetown University and Washington Hospital Center residency program, where he teaches ophthalmologists surgical techniques for cataract and anterior segment surgery. His work at Visium Eye Institute allows him to provide his 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. Summerfield. “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.”
