UV-C Sanitizing Light Offers Next-Level Disinfecting

At Mann Eye Institute, we are always committed to going above and beyond to safely serve our patients. The health and safety of our patients and our team members are of great importance to us—especially at this time. We want you to know we are taking every measure to keep you safe!

To that end, we’ve added even more protection in our Mann Eye offices with the UV-C Disinfection Room Lamp. This space-age looking light is designed to target germs on surfaces and in the air.

The Science Behind UV-C

UV-C is a proven disinfecting technology used effectively against viruses, bacteria, mold and allergens. It has been used in the sanitization of hospitals, airplanes, food and water for more than a hundred years. Professional medical-grade UV-C products are a great sanitization choice because they don’t require chemicals, heat or waste-products. They safely sanitize surfaces and the air around you at a molecular level.

Don’t Put Off Cataract Surgery

We’ve had many patients ask us about elective surgery at this time; specifically, cataract surgery. Many wonder if it’s a better idea to wait. So much information and varying opinions have understandably caused some confusion. To address this common concern, we’ve fleshed out the top five reasons to not postpone cataract surgery.

It’s a great read and we hope you’ll take a peek, but the long and short of it is this: You should not delay cataract surgery at this time if you need it.

Advances in technology have made an already safe and successful procedure like cataract surgery safer than ever. In fact, more than two million men and women undergo cataract surgery every year, making it one of the most common and successful medical procedures in the U.S. today.

With multiple locations surrounding the Houston and Austin, Texas areas, the surgeons at Mann Eye Institute are among the most experienced cataract surgeons in the country. If we may serve you at this time, we’d be honored. Schedule your cataract evaluation at Mann Eye Institute today.
