Cataract Surgery

A cataract is the natural lens in the eye becoming cloudy. They are primarily due to age, but can be due to other factors such as trauma, diabetes, and steroid medications. They can affect your vision in many different ways. You may notice one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Blurry vision
  • Difficulty seeing in dim light
  • Glare in bright lights
  • Halos around lights, often while driving at night
  • Rapid or frequent changes in your glasses prescription
  • Decreased color or contrast sensitivity
  • Double vision in one eye
  • Poor depth perception

Not all cataracts require treatment, but the only way to treat cataracts is with surgery. Surgery is generally done without stitches, and recovery is usually relatively quick with minimal discomfort. During surgery, the cataract is removed from the eye and a new permanent lens is implanted within the eye. There are many new potential choices for lens implantation. Your need for glasses can be significantly reduced or even eliminated in certain cases. If you have or may have cataracts, request an appointment with Dr. Dwarakanathan or Dr. Wang to discuss your options today.
