How Do I Know if I Need Cataract Surgery?
A cataract may not need to be removed right away if your lifestyle isn’t significantly affected. In some cases, simply changing your eyeglass prescription may help to improve your vision. Contrary to popular belief, a cataract does not have to be “ripe” to be removed. However, once you are diagnosed with a cataract, your ophthalmologist needs to monitor your vision regularly for any changes. When the cataract begins to significantly affect your lifestyle, and you decide that it is time for surgery, our ophthalmologists will work with you to determine the type of cataract surgery that is best for you.
What Happens During Cataract Surgery?
With cataract surgery, your eye’s cloudy natural lens is removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens implant (called an intraocular lens or IOL). You and your ophthalmologist will discuss the cataract surgery procedure, preparation before surgery, recovery time, benefits and possible complications of cataract surgery, cataract surgery costs, and other important information before you schedule your procedure.
Please allow 24-48 business hours to be contacted regarding your appointment request. We look forward to seeing you soon.
