Poor Vision Can Be Misdiagnosed as Cognitive Decline
A new study by the University of South Australia suggests millions of elderly people with vision problems are being misdiagnosed with cognitive decline.
In 1996, three Central Ohio eye surgeons opened the very first free-standing surgical center dedicated to eyes in the state of Ohio. While surgical centers are now the standard of care for specialties, back then, the Columbus Eye Surgery Center on East Broad Street was revolutionary. The three-member surgical team of Dr. Richard Orlando, Dr. Robin Beran, and the now-retired Dr. Robert Bruce were called “foolish” and “crazy,” but today, they’re looked at as true medical visionaries.
This first-of-its-kind center has provided a way for thousands of patients to have important procedures performed on their eyes without ever having to step foot in a hospital. Patients can undergo any type of eye surgery, including cataract, retina, eyelid, glaucoma, cross-eyed correction, corneal transplants and laser procedures.
Our patients have highly rated the care they received from our doctors and staff, and they say they are likely to recommend our center for outpatient procedures. See what they had to say.
