Glaucoma-Cataract New Braunfels

Glaucoma-Cataract New Braunfels-Dr. J.T. Kavanagh Fellowship Trained Glaucoma Specialist and Board Certified Ophthalmologist a well-known cataract and glaucoma specialist was the first full-time fellowship-trained glaucoma specialist in the Seguin-New Braunfels-San Marcos triangle. He has performed the first IAccess goniotomy in South Texas. This is a more controlled Micro Invasive Glaucoma surgery than a typical goniotomy performed with a blade, which destroys the blood-aqueous barrier and can lead to inflammation and recurrent bleeding in the anterior chamber.

Dr. Kavanagh performs a high volume of cataract surgery using the latest intraocular lens (IOLs) including Panoptix, Synergy, Vivity, Toric, Depth of focus as well as the new Light Adjustable Lens (LALS). Eye Associates of South Texas has access to both the LenSX and LENSAR Lasers for Femtosecond LASER cataract surgery.

Modern cataract surgery has the advantage of being able to lessen or completely reduce the need for glasses after cataract surgery. It is also possible to improve glaucoma control with the use of Micro Invasive Glaucoma surgery at the time of cataract surgery in only minutes more than the cataract surgery itself. Dr. Kavanagh is adept at all MIGS surgeries: Alcon Hydrus, Omni Sight Sciences, IStent, IStent inject, IAccess, KDB Goniotomy, Durysta, and the XEN Gel Microstent by Allergan.

We show you a video below of a combined IAccess and IStent Inject MIGS surgery with basic cataract surgery. It shows the patency of the trabecular bypass both by the IStent Inject device and the IAccess goniotomy trephine.

So if you have cataracts and glaucoma it is of the utmost importance to see a surgeon adept at both. You will be in good hands with the surgeons of Eye Associates of South Texas as they have performed over 50,000 cataract surgeries (and many thousands of MIGS in conjunction with cataract surgery).
