New Advances in Cataract Surgery

A free seminar from Sentara Potomac Hospital

Join Dr. Susan Majlessi, a fellowship-trained ophthalmologist, as she discusses new advances in cataract surgery at this free community seminar.

Cataract is a condition in which the lens of the eye turns cloudy and obstructs the passage of light. Left untreated, cataracts may cause vision problems that interfere with daily activities or blindness.

In the United States, 75 percent of those over the age of 60 show some signs of cataracts as a normal effect of aging. Fortunately, the condition is treatable with surgery. Learn about your surgical options during this informative event.

New Advances in Cataract Surgery
Thursday, December 8, 4:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Westminster at Lake Ridge

Take a Guided Tour of the Sentara Heart and Vascular Center at Potomac Hospital

The new Sentara Heart and Vascular Center at Potomac Hospital offers residents in our community the option of receiving cardiovascular care closer to home, including interventional cardiac catheterization and other procedures to treat heart and vascular diseases.

Just ask Lorton resident, Charlie Beahm, who came to the Sentara Heart and Vascular Center for a diagnostic procedure but then got the surprise of his life when tests revealed that he actually had a heart attack. He was happy to get the cardiac care he needed close to home.

Take a guided video tour of the Sentara Heart and Vascular Center at Potomac Hospital.
