Every year in the United States, roughly two million Americans receive cataract surgery which results in clearer vision and higher quality of life. Allow us to explain what cataract surgery entails and its benefits:
Cataract Surgery Details
Cataracts cause your eye’s lens to become cloudy, making it difficult to see clearly. During cataract surgery, your eye doctor will remove this cloudy eye lens and replace it with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL).
During your cataract surgery, we will use the LensX Precision Laser System. This System boasts accuracy and consistency, allowing the procedure to be done without the use of a patch or stitches. It has incredible accuracy due to computer guidance, but your Eyesight Associates’ doctor is still needed!
At your appointment, he will take your internal and external eye measurements. He will create a surgical plan based on these measurements. The System will use these measurements to complete the procedure based on your unique requirements.
Cataract Surgery Benefits
The most obvious and incredible benefit of cataract surgery is that your vision will be much better! In addition to better vision, you may experience an improved quality of life. Now you can go back to doing the things you love that your blurry vision was making it difficult to enjoy such as driving or reading.
On a serious note, cataract surgery can also increase how long you live! When you have poor vision, you won’t be able to see obstacles in your path very well or drive safely when it’s dark outside. Cataract surgery can redeem your vision and help you live a safer life.
