A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside your eye, a natural part of the aging process. They are caused primarily by age, but trauma, heredity, exposure to ultraviolet radiation, and certain medications or medical conditions may also cause a cataract to develop.
Symptoms of a Cataract
When cataracts first develop, they often do not cause noticeable symptoms. But, as they progress, you will gradually begin to notice symptoms like cloudy or blurry vision, glare or halos from lights, poor night vision, and difficulty distinguishing colors. In the majority of cases, symptoms develop so gradually that many patients are unaware of how much their vision has changed. Many people just assume their eyeglasses need to be changed, but changing eyeglasses will not fix the symptoms caused by cataracts.
Advanced Technology for Advanced Care
If you’ve been living with cataracts, imagine life once again with clear, crisp vision and bright, vibrant colors. Clearer vision improves your every day activities, while enhancing your quality of life. Cataract surgery has undergone tremendous technological advances that allow you to receive visual freedom. Today it is safer and more precise and the possibility of seeing near, intermediate, and far with little to no dependence on glasses is now a reality.
We proudly offer Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery technology to our patients. Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery uses laser precision throughout the steps of surgery that were traditionally performed by hand. Patients are provided with numerous benefits:
- Increased precision with better visual outcomes
- Faster healing time
- Less post-operative discomfort
- Decreased risk of complications
Advanced Lens Options to Match Your Lifestyle
Once a cataract is removed, an intraocular lens (IOL) will be inserted into its place. With modern advancements in technology, we offer several IOL options that eliminate your cataracts and help you see near, far, and everything in between, with little to no dependence on glasses or contacts! When choosing an IOL, consider your lifestyle. If you’d like to be able to see near, far, and in-between while also correcting your astigmatism, personalized options are available to you at Ludwick Eye Center.
