A cataract is a painless clouding of the human eye lens. It causes vision to be blurred as if looking through a dirty camera lens. As the cloudiness progresses, vision becomes increasingly blurred. The cataract formation interferes with the passage of light into the retina, which is located at the back of the eye. The retina is responsible for converting light into energy signals that are sent to the brain. Cataracts can cause a number of visual symptoms. These include:
A cataract has many causes. These include; aging, genetics, poor diet, injury, ultraviolet exposure (such as with sunbathing), smoking, diseases such as diabetes, and the use of certain medications (like prednisone and others). Cataracts can occur at any age, from birth to later years.
Cataract surgery is performed when vision becomes affected. Years ago people needed to wait until their cataracts became hardened or “ripe” before surgery could be performed. But due to surgical advances, in the 21st Century, that’s no longer the case.
Sometimes, cataracts grow so slowly that people are unaware they’ve lost vision. In our office, we show patients live video imaging of a cataract to help them better understand, and actually see, what is occurring in the eye and how vision is affected.
Lifestyle cataract surgery offers patients the potential for an overall vision that is superior to what can be achieved with traditional cataract surgery. In addition to removing cataracts, lifestyle cataract surgery can simultaneously correct a patient’s other vision issues, such as: astigmatism, near-sightedness, and far-sightedness. With this procedure, once cataracts are removed, our highly-skilled physicians can implant the appropriate lens (PanOptix, Symfony, Crystalens, Tecnis, Trulign and others) that can lessen, or even, eliminate a patient dependence on glasses. After lifestyle cataract surgery, many of our patients no longer require glasses or contacts for most activities. Smaller print reading may improve with glasses especially in dimmer lights.
To insure that patients get the best results from lifestyle cataract surgery, it is essential to select a practice with top-notch expertise and equipment. Specifically, patients should look for:
