Conversation With A Doctor: “Everything You Need To Know About Cataract Surgery” @ Administrative Conference Room Sonoma Valley Hospital
Mar 25 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Ophthalmologist Michael Saidel MD will provide a comprehensive look at how cataracts can affect our vision as we age, and what can be done about them, at the next Sonoma Valley Hospital “Conversation With A Doctor” information session.

Cataracts are a concern for many as we age. The American Academy of Ophthalmology reports cataracts affect more than 24 million Americans age 40 and older and, by age 75, approximately half of all Americans experience cataracts. Fortunately, cataracts are treatable with a surgical procedure considered to be safe and effective, typically performed on an outpatient basis in less than an hour.

Dr. Saidel will discuss the cause, symptoms, and treatments for cataracts including both traditional and the newer laser surgical procedure. 

The talk will be held on Monday, March 25 in the Hospital’s Administrative Conference Room, from 12:00 pm Noon – 1:00 pm. There is no charge and the number of attendees will be limited to allow for informal discussion and audience questions, so RSVPs are requested. To reserve a space, please contact Celia Kruse de la Rosa at 707.935.5257 or by email to ckrusedelarosa@svh.com.

Dr. Saidel is an ophthalmologist with subspecialties in cornea and refractive surgery. He earned his medical degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He did his ophthalmology residency at Tulane University and his cornea fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco.”

“Conversation With A Doctor” is an informational series sponsored by Sonoma Valley Hospital, providing an opportunity for community members to meet physicians associated with the hospital and learn more about recent developments in their areas of expertise.
