Maintaining the health and safety of our patients, employees, and community is our top priority.  


To ensure social distancing to the best of our ability, we must limit the number of people in the office. We are asking patients to bring only one family member/friend with them during their visit. They must remain with you through out your exam. At this time we are not allowing visitors to wait in the reception area.

Patients must meet the following criteria:

  • Follow social distancing policies.
  • Have had no symptoms or exposure in the last 14 days.
  • Temperature of less than 100.0F.

 Mask Policy:

  • Patients and approved visitors must wear a mask. Masks are still required in all healthcare facilities.
  • Masks must fully cover the nose and mouth.

Common Eye Conditions & Disorders

Wearing glasses and contacts is cumbersome for many people. As such, most of them look for ways to correct their eye problems more permanently. Luckily, eye specialists have made incredible advancements in vision correction surgery, enabling them to provide permanent solutions for people with different eye conditions & disorders. We look at common eye diseases corrected using eye surgery at Kunesh Eye Center in Dayton.

Diabetic Retinopathy

This is an eye condition that causes blindness in people who have diabetes due to damaged blood vessels in the retina. Early diabetic retinopathy causes the blood vessels to weaken or leak fluid into the retina. Since this condition doesn't exhibit any symptoms early on, diabetic patients need to undergo frequent eye exams. While vision loss due to this condition cannot be recovered, further vision loss can be prevented.

Laser treatment may be necessary to halt the progression of diabetic retinopathy. Another type of surgery to correct diabetic retinopathy is a vitrectomy, which involves removing leaked blood around the retina and repairing the blood vessels to prevent them from leaking blood again. During the procedure, a clear salt solution is pumped into the eye by our eye surgeon to maintain pressure and replace the removed scarred tissues.

Cataracts

The lens is the clear aspect of the eye that allows us to see. However, lenses can become cloudy as a consequence of the natural aging process. People with diabetes are more likely to develop cataracts earlier. Research shows the high glucose levels cause deposits to build up in the lenses, making them cloudy. Luckily, our eye surgeon can correct the problem by replacing the cloudy lens with an artificial one. After the procedure, your vision can get blurry, but it improves after a couple of days.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve. Two types of surgeries are used to treat glaucoma. The first is laser eye surgery, which is an outpatient procedure that allows you to go home once it’s done. However, if the treatment is not effective, our ophthalmologist may recommend having conventional glaucoma surgery. It’s also an outpatient procedure but has a longer recovery period (usually a week).

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • Highly recommend this practice! I was in town visiting family and had an issue with my eye that worried me and needed to be checked.but couldn’t get in with another physician until later, and their reviews weren’t as high. I phoned Kunesh and was greeted by Julie, super pleasant on the phone and when I described my issue, she was very prompt in getting me an appointment. From the moment I arrived the staff was all busy working and multitasking. While I was filling out paperwork Elaine took

  • If and when you have a retina tear, this is the place to go. I was seen on a Saturday and was the only patient. If you live long enough and are near sighted and see Northern lights inside call. You will be seen. Normally this is not a problem, but only an ophthalmologist can tell. To avoid the long wait take the earliest appointment offered. If not, it is definitely worth the wait. The optometrist is great, too, but must be requested. Their attention to detail is amazing! You will have drops, s
