Cataract is common in people as they age due to changes that occur in the lens proteins. Prolonged use of eye drops and inhalers can also increase the risk of formation of cataract. To assess the impact of the condition, you will be required to perform a Visual Acuity Test. Our eye surgeon will examine and check for abnormalities in the cornea, iris, and lens. Surgery will be recommended for cataract depending on the severity of the condition and the impact it can have on the day to day activities in your life.
Cataract surgery is one of the most popular, safest and effective surgeries performed in the world. At Spanish Eye Center we use the most advanced, safe and sophisticated technology and techniques to clear the cloudy lens. The procedure requires just eye drops and no stitches. The surgery ensures a high percentage of freedom from glasses. So you can achieve clear vision through a procedure which takes not more than 20 minutes, it is also painless and causes minimal discomfort to the patient. You can return home after the procedure and get back to your regular activities, like even going back to work within a couple of days. It is a procedure that is only required to do once, so we ensure that we provide the best possible results.
Cataract surgery is successful at restoring vision. There is a 95% success rate of patients who undergo cataract surgery and many of whom achieve vision between 20/20 and 20/40. The surgeon will remove the clouded lens and replace it with a clear, intraocular lens.
We advise patients to rest for up to 24 hours post-surgery and request that you return for a follow-up to our surgeon’s office. Patients will notice some visible changes during the recovery period. You will see dark spots which will disappear within a few weeks. There may be slight itching for which patients may use a moist cloth for relief.
At Spanish Eye Center, patients can be assured of outstanding treatment. We have an experienced and qualified team of eye surgeons that use cutting-edge technology to bring you optimal results.
