Cataract Care

​​

Cataracts can interfere with your vision and quality of life. Thankfully, cataract surgery has become a much easier, less invasive procedure than it was years ago with better outcomes for most patients. Our highly specialized cataract surgeons are recognized as leaders in their field. They offer the most advanced treatment procedures and provide you with the highest quality care.  Our patients often experience life-changing improvement in vision.

 

A cataract is a clouding of the eye's natural lens that can interfere with your vision and is considered the most common cause of vision loss around the world. If you have a cataract, your vision may become blurry, cloudy and you may experience increased glare. Having cataracts has been described as looking through a foggy window.  Depending on the degree of cloudiness, a cataract can cause a little blurring or severe loss of vision.  The rate at which a cataract progresses is highly variable. A cataract is not a tumor or growth.  Vision can only be restored by surgical removal of the natural lens.  More than three million cataract operations are performed each year in the United States.

Many people who have undergone cataract surgery at one of our ambulatory surgery centers find that their vision is not only better than it was prior to surgery, but better than it has been throughout their lives.

If you are experiencing symptoms of a cataract or you are at risk for developing cataracts, schedule a comprehensive eye exam today.
