Reduce blurry vision & see clearly again.
Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgeries. While cataracts can’t be prevented, they certainly can be treated. Most people find the surgery easier than they expected and say they’d recommend cataract surgery to a friend or family member. Most people also say cataract surgery addressed most or all of their vision problems, and are able to decrease their dependency on glasses.
Colors may seem brighter after your surgery because you are looking through a new, clear lens.
What is Cataract Surgery?
It is a procedure to remove the natural lens of your eye and, in most cases, replace it with an artificial lens. Normally, the lens of your eye is clear and soft. A cataract causes the lens to become cloudy and hard which eventually affects your vision.
Cataract surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, which means you don’t need to stay in the hospital after the surgery. Cataract surgery can be done traditionally using ultrasound energy to remove the cloudy lens or it can be removed with laser-assisted technology (Femto Second Laser) . Cataract surgery is very common and is generally a safe procedure.
How does a cataract affect vision?
The surgery is performed to treat your cataract . Cataracts can cause blurry vision and increase the glare from lights. If the cataract makes it difficult for you to carry out your normal activities, your doctor may suggest cataract surgery.
When a cataract interferes with the treatment of another eye problem, cataract surgery may be recommended. For example, doctors may recommend cataract surgery if a cataract makes it difficult for your eye doctor to examine the Funus to monitor or treat other eye problems such as age-related macular degeneration, Glaucoma or diabetic rethinpathy..
In most cases, waiting to have cataract surgery won’t harm your eye, so you have time to consider your options. If your vision is still quite good, you may wait for surgery.
When considering cataract surgery, keep these questions in mind:
- Can you see enough good to do your job and drive safely?
- Do you have any problems with reading or watching television?
- Is it difficult to cook, shop, do yard work or climb stairs ?
- Do vision problems affect your level of independence?
- Do you have any problem to see with bright lights ?
After cataract surgery, expect your vision to begin improving within a few days. Your vision may be blurry at first as your eye heals and adjusts.
