At Tayani Institute, we recognize that each of our patients is unique and comes to us with their own set of goals and expectations. We want to provide a wide range of treatment options designed to suit different needs. Once we have learned more about the individual patient and their lifestyle, we can help them make the choices that are right for them. Some of our cataract surgery patients opt to replace their natural lens with a standard monofocal intraocular lens, which restores clear vision at a single distance. In addition to standard or basic lenses, we also offer elective premium lenses that have special advantages. Many of our patients are happy to pay a little more for lenses that allow them to live a more active lifestyle. In this post, our team explains why upgrading to premium or “lifestyle” lenses is well worth it! (more…)

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve, or the nerve that transmits information to the brain. It is one of the leading causes of blindness and has been called the “silent thief of sight” because sometimes it irreversibly damages the eyes without causing vision loss or any other symptoms. Since glaucoma is such a threat to the eyes, the team at Tayani Institute in Mission Viejo wants to raise awareness of the disease and its warning signs amongst our patients. Read on as we discuss the different types of glaucoma. (more…)

March is Workplace Eye Wellness Month

Nearly 25,000 Americans go to the emergency room every year due to an eye injury that happens in the workplace. The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) hopes to reduce this number by raising awareness about eye protection and wellness in the workplace. They have designated March as Workplace Eye Wellness Month. This month, the team at Tayani Institute joins the AAO in reminding everyone to protect the eyesight we have been given. Here’s how: Wear Appropriate Eye Protection Most eye injuries that occur in the workplace happen because of a particle abrasion in the eye or chemical splashing. It is imperative for anyone that works around potential hazards to wear appropriate eye protection. This could include safety glasses, goggles, helmets or face shields. Wearing polycarbonate material will help protect and prevent eye injuries. Prevent Computer Vision Syndrome With more jobs revolving around computers, computer vision syndrome (i.e., digital eye strain) is a legitimate threat to the health and wellness of our eyes. Staring at the screen for prolonged periods of time can cause dry eye, headaches and neck pain. One of the best ways to prevent computer-related eye problems is to take frequent rest breaks. Remember the 20-20-20 rule: at least every 20 minutes, take your eyes off your screen and focus on an object at least 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds. Repositioning the computer screen roughly 30 inches away from the face (at eye level) and investing in an anti-glare screen for the monitor are helpful for preventing computer vision syndrome. Staying hydrated and using artificial tears can help lubricate the eyes and stave off dry eye symptoms. Reduce the Risk of Eye Infection Individuals in the healthcare, laboratory, janitorial and animal handling industries are at a heightened risk of picking up an eye infection. Those working in these industries should be especially careful about reducing their risk of exposure to eye illnesses, and should take the appropriate measures (i.e., wearing special protection, frequently washing hands). Schedule Annual Eye Exams Finally, annual eye exams are excellent opportunities for an ophthalmologist to examine the eyes and identify any sign of problems in their earliest stages. The eye doctor can also address any possible vision-related concerns or monitor changes in vision.

Tayani Leads the Way with Bladeless Cataract Surgery

Bladeless Cataract Surgery: A High-Tech Solution

Cataracts are among the most common kinds of optical problems. These occur when the lens of the eye clouds over. There are a variety of causes, though aging is among the most common. Untreated, cataracts can lead to vision loss and even blindness. Cataract surgery has long provided relief for this problem. It's one of the most common ophthalmological procedures practiced today. Now, our team here at the Tayani Institute is excited to announce that we're using a revolutionary new procedure to provide even better service for our patients: bladeless cataract surgery.

Cataract Surgery the Old-Fashioned Way

The goal of cataract surgery is to remove and replace the clouded lens. Surgeons have traditionally done this by making an incision into the patient's cornea. Once this is done, the surgeon will create a circular hole in the capsule, which gives them access to the affected lens. The lens is then broken up through a process called phacoemulsification. The remnants are aspirated from the eye, and the lens is replaced. The procedure is safe and quite effective. However, patients can now choose to undergo bladeless cataract surgery. This allows for premium lens placement and optimal results.

Bladeless Cataract Surgery and the LenSx Laser

The Tayani Institute's surgeons utilize the LenSx femtosecond laser to perform bladeless cataract surgery. This is the most widely used laser of its kind, and offers unparalleled precision. The LenSx laser allows the surgeon to make much neater incisions. As a result, the surgery is both faster and more efficient. The recovery time is also reduced, since the process doesn't require as much ultrasonic energy to emulsify the lens. It's easy to see why bladeless cataract surgery is in such high demand.

Bringing Bladeless Cataract Surgery to Southern California

The West Coast Center for Surgery (WCCS) is the only surgery facility in south Orange County that offers bladeless cataract surgery using the LenSx femtosecond laser. The Tayani Institute is dedicated to making sure that patients receive the best treatments, performed by the best surgeons. We've chosen this laser because of its proven ability. It has been successfully used in over 500,000 ophthalmological procedures world-wide. As experts, we're always looking for new ways to help. That's why we're proud to present our patients with the latest technology in cataract removal and astigmatism treatment. Our state-of-the-art surgical facility, the WCCS Center of Excellence for Eyes, was founded by Dr. Ramin Tayani. It is located in San Clemente, adjacent to the Tayani Institute medical practice.

Seeing a Glaucoma Specialist

If you have been diagnosed with glaucoma, you will need the right treatment to manage it. This disease worsens your eyesight over time, and can eventually lead to total blindness. It can also cause physical pain. Glaucoma is one of the most common optical diseases. The British Journal of Ophthalmology published a study estimating that as many as 60.5 million people had it in 2010, and that this number will only grow.

What is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is usually caused by excessive pressure in the optic nerve. This pressure leads to nerve damage and worsening eyesight. A glaucoma specialist can use a number of methods to try and relieve the pressure. There are two main types of glaucoma: open-angle and closed-angle. The closed-angle version appears without warning, and is quite painful. Open-angle glaucoma is gradual, and much harder to notice. Optometrists and ophthalmologists regularly screen for glaucoma, which is another reason you should attend regular appointments. Ask to be referred to a glaucoma specialist if they find it. Glaucoma can't be cured. However, a glaucoma specialist can treat the disease. Depending on the situation, the specialist can either prevent eyesight from getting worse, or slow the rate of optical damage.

What the Glaucoma Specialist can Do

There are many techniques that can help people struggling with glaucoma. The Tayani Institute prides itself on using the best and latest technologies. An example is the selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT). This uses low energy lasers to drain fluid from the eye and relieve pressure. It's non-invasive and can be done in less than five minutes! Other methods also exist, such as the trabeculectomy. This uses surgical means to reduce optical pressure. Our glaucoma specialist, Dr. Joson, is someone who truly understands the best ways of treating the illness. He has successfully treated hundreds of patients. His friendly, calming demeanor creates a loyal bond between himself, his patients, and their families. Glaucoma is a scary prospect, but he can help you manage it.
