Cataracts are a part of the aging process, but they do not have to interfere with your life style. A cataract is a cloudiness of the crystalline lens inside your eye. As your lens gets cloudier, your vision will gradually become more blurred, and you will also usually notice more glare or halos from lights, especially at night. If these problems begin to interfere with your lifestyle or keep you from doing the things you love to do, you may be a candidate for cataract surgery. There is no reason to fear cataract surgery, as we have seen dramatic, almost miraculous results from this procedure. Cataract surgery has become a function of refractive surgery. In other words, there is a double benefit – not only is the cataract removed, but the surgeon also calculates the lens implant to eliminate your need for glasses or contact lenses. Now, cataract surgery can also be assisted with a laser, for even more precise results. Ask us for more details about your options.
