Understanding Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is a safe and effective procedure to improve vision in patients with cataracts. A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens of the eye, which can cause blurry vision, poor night vision, and increased light sensitivity. During cataract surgery, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL).

Who is a Candidate for Cataract Surgery?

Cataract surgery is not always necessary. If your cataracts are not significantly impacting your daily activities or vision, you may not require immediate surgery. However, if you experience cloudy vision, double vision, or faded colors, consulting with our ophthalmologists is recommended. We can determine the severity of your cataracts and discuss if surgery is the best course of treatment for you.

Benefits of Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery offers numerous benefits, including improved vision clarity, enhanced color perception, and reduced dependence on glasses or contact lenses. Many patients experience a significant improvement in their overall quality of life after undergoing cataract surgery. With advancements in surgical techniques and IOL technology, the procedure is safer and more effective than ever before.
