What Is A Cataract

Woman getting cataract surgeryA cataract is not a growth, but a gradual clouding of the eye’s lens. The lens, which is responsible for focusing light after it enters the eye, is normally crystal clear. As we age, it can become cloudy and block the passage of light through the eye, resulting in blurred vision.

How Fast Do Cataracts Progress?

Age related cataracts generally progress slowly over the course of several years. Cataracts associated with diabetic patients or trauma to the eye can progress quite rapidly. It is not possible to accurately predict how quickly cataracts will progress in any given patient. Annual eye exams with your regular optometrist is the best way to catch the development of cataracts.

What Are the Symptoms of Cataracts?

Cataract symptoms include blurry vision, dim or faded colors, and sensitivity to bright lights. Patients may also experience glare or halos, as well as poor night vision. A patient might notice frequent prescription changes in glasses or contacts. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, make an appointment today for your cataract evaluation.

How can I find out if I have cataracts?

A screening is used to determine whether or not you have cataracts and which tailored-treatment best fits your vision and lifestyle needs. Make an appointment to find out how to improve your vision today.

How Are Cataracts Removed?

There are three easy steps to cataract surgery: 1. Preparing your eye – To prepare your eye for the cataract removal, your surgeon will make a tiny incision in your cornea. This incision is so small that it is able to completely self-heal after the procedure. 2. Cataract Removal – Once the incision is made, your surgeon will use a microscopic ultrasound probe to gently remove the cataract material. 3. Restoring Vision – After the cataract has been removed, your surgeon will then replace the once cloudy lens with a clear, artificial lens. This new lens cannot be seen or felt and will stay permanently in the eye.

What to Expect After Cataract Surgery

Most patients return to normal activities within 24 to 48 hours of their procedure, although strenuous physical activity is discouraged for several weeks. The eye may take several weeks to heal completely. You will have regular follow up visits with your eye doctor to oversee the entire healing process.

How much does cataract surgery cost?

Cataract surgery is covered under Medicare and most insurances. We also offer excellent financing options, such as 0% financing for up to 24 months with no money down and payments as low as /month (subject to credit approval).
