Our ophthalmology practice offers all the latest and most advanced technologies and cataract surgical techniques to restore your vision. We now provide lens implants that will allow you not only to see well at distance again, but also see up close and at computer distances as well, all with the same eye! These multifocal lenses can be a wonderful option for those who wish to have even greater spectacle independence.
Cataracts cause the lens of the eye to become cloudy, which causes blurry vision that can’t be fixed by prescription glasses or contact lenses.
With millions of cataract surgeries performed each year in the US, this procedure is one of the safest. During surgery, we will use an ultrasound device or laser to help break up the cloudy lens into small pieces. Then these small pieces are carefully removed through gentle suction.
After the cloudy lens has been removed, we will replace it with an artificial lens implant. Once the cataract has been removed and the lens implant has been placed, stitches are usually not required and a protective patch is rarely placed over the eye. The whole procedure is performed in an outpatient setting and only takes about 15 minutes to complete.
Before getting cataract surgery we will perform a thorough eye examination to check the health of your eye and to make sure you are a candidate for treatment. We will also need to take measurements of your eye to determine the extent of any nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism you may have which will help us select the best lens implant power for you. We will also talk to you about what you can expect during and after your procedure and how to care for your eye as it heals.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding your upcoming cataract surgery, we are here for you. Never hesitate to give us a call or schedule a consultation to make sure that you know as much about your surgery as possible. Our goal is to make sure you feel comfortable and happy with the care you are receiving.
