What are Cataracts?

Cataracts are a common eye condition characterized by the clouding of the eye’s natural lens, which is typically clear. This clouding of the lens can lead to blurred or hazy vision, making it difficult to see clearly.

Cataracts can develop slowly over time, although they can also result from injury, medication use, or certain medical conditions. The condition is treatable through cataract surgery, during which the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL), restoring clear vision.

What are the Signs of Cataracts?

Cataracts often progress gradually, causing blurry, cloudy vision. Common indications of cataracts include progressively blurred vision, increased sensitivity to glare from lights, difficulty with night vision, changes in color perception, and the onset of double vision in one eye.

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s crucial to consult with our experienced team at See Vision Eye Institute for a comprehensive evaluation and to see if cataract surgery is right for you.

Design Your Vision With The Light Adjustable Lens (LAL)

The Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) redefines cataract treatment, offering patients the ability to customize and fine-tune their vision post-surgery. This advanced implant is made from a light-sensitive material, allowing us to tailor the lens’s shape and focusing power through gentle, in-office UV light sessions. The result? Sharper, clearer vision that is precisely aligned to your individual vision needs. Discover how the LAL can restore your vision after cataracts and transform your quality of life.

Advanced Lens Technology

Refractive Lens Exchange

Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) is a modern solution for refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, or presbyopia. RLE is similar to cataract surgery but replaces a clear lens instead of a cloudy one. It’s ideal for those over 50, no longer LASIK candidates, and not yet ready for traditional cataract surgery, offering the benefits of clearer vision without glasses.

Cataract Postoperative Care

At See Vision Eye Institute, our commitment to your well-being doesn’t end with the surgery. After your cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange, our team will guide you through a personalized post-operative care plan.

Cataract surgery recovery is generally swift. Most patients experience significant vision improvement within a few days to a week, although full recovery may take several weeks. Postoperative care involves using prescribed eye drops and possibly protective eyewear. Follow-up exams are scheduled to monitor progress, and you can usually resume light activities within a day or two but should avoid strenuous activities for a couple of weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during my Cataract Surgery consultation?2024-03-21T11:20:19-04:00

You can expect a thorough evaluation of your eye health and vision during your cataract surgery consultation at See Vision Eye Institute. The consultation typically includes reviewing your medical history, a visual acuity test, a refraction, a measurement of intraocular pressure, a slit-lamp examination, and a dilated eye examination. Your cataract will be assessed, and Dr. Gorscak will discuss treatment options. If Dr. Gorscak determines cataract surgery is necessary, we will take specialized measurements and perform imaging tests to determine the best options for your vision. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions and address any concerns you may have about the procedure and its outcomes.

Will I need someone to drive me home after my eye procedure?2024-03-21T11:52:30-04:00

Because you will receive medication to relax you, we require you to have someone drive you home after your eye procedure.

What is the recovery time for eye surgery?2024-03-21T11:55:00-04:00

Recovery time varies depending on the type of surgery performed. We will provide you with detailed post-operative care instructions and what you can expect during the recovery period.

How do I prepare for Cataract Surgery?2024-03-21T12:01:58-04:00

Prior to cataract surgery, you’ll have a pre-operative appointment to measure your eye and discuss IOL options. We will also work with your primary care physician to provide medical clearance for your surgery. It’s important to follow all pre-surgery instructions given by your surgeon, which may include fasting or avoiding certain medications.

How long does the clarity from Cataract Surgery last?2024-03-21T12:18:09-04:00

Your new intraocular lens is permanently placed inside your eye. The artificial IOL does not age like the natural lens, so you will not develop cataracts again. However, most patients experience a gradual clouding of the capsular bag that holds the intraocular lens. This is easily treated with a simple laser procedure.

Will I need glasses after Cataract Surgery?2024-03-21T12:24:22-04:00

It depends on which package you choose. Our cataract surgery packages are entirely personalized to your preferences so you have the freedom to select the vision outcome that aligns with your needs. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your vision goals and IOL options to customize your treatment plan.

What is the recovery like after Cataract Surgery?2024-03-21T12:26:55-04:00

Post-surgery, you may experience mild discomfort and blurry vision, but many patients report clear vision within several hours to a few days. Your eye may completely heal within eight weeks. Your doctor will provide specific aftercare instructions and schedule follow-up visits to monitor your recovery.

What can I expect during Laser Cataract Surgery?2024-03-21T12:30:31-04:00

During the laser cataract surgery procedure, your eye will be numbed with eye drop anesthesia. The clouded lens will be fragmented and removed, and a new, clear IOL will be implanted. Our patients often tell us this is a relaxing experience and they can’t wait for the surgery on their fellow eye! The process is generally quick and painless.

Is Cataract Surgery safe?2024-03-21T12:36:44-04:00

Yes, cataract surgery is one of the most common and successful surgical procedures performed today. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved, but these are minimal and our team is equipped with the expertise to ensure the highest standards of safety.

How do I know if I need Cataract Surgery?2024-03-21T12:42:35-04:00

Typically, cataract surgery is recommended when cataracts cause enough vision loss to interfere with your daily activities. An ophthalmologist at See Vision Eye Institute can assess your vision and recommend if and when surgery is necessary.

What makes advanced Laser Cataract Surgery different?2024-03-21T12:44:07-04:00

Advanced Laser Cataract Surgery employs laser technology for precision, enhancing safety and outcomes compared to traditional methods.
