Cataract Surgery Improves Vision for Life
Cataracts are commonly associated with the aging process. Thousands of Americans over the age of 40 are diagnosed each year with cataracts. By the age of 80 half of all Americans will have cataracts or have had cataract surgery. What are cataracts?
• A cataract is a clouding effect on the lens of the eye. It creates a loss of vision that cannot be treated by glasses or refractive surgery. As cataracts progress, you may have symptoms such as: cloudy vision, difficulty see at night or in low light, and halos around lights
• Colors may appear faded or yellowed. Daily activities such as reading, sewing, playing cards and watching television become difficult.
Cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure, taking less than an hour. During surgery, the clouded lens is removed and replaced with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). Vision improvements are recognized by my patients within just a few days after eye surgery.
