If cataracts are interfering with your ability to drive, read, or perform other daily tasks, it's time to consider cataract surgery. Cataract surgery is a routine procedure that can be performed as soon as cataracts interfere with your quality of life.
Modern cataract surgery is a quick outpatient procedure that takes just a few hours of your time, from start to finish. During the procedure, the cloudy lens in your eye is broken up, removed, and replaced with a clear intraocular lens.
Patients can choose a basic intraocular lens or an advanced technology lens that will correct for other vision problems such as farsightedness or nearsightedness. With advanced technology lenses, many patients don't need glasses at all after their cataract surgery.
Unlike years ago, cataract surgery today is a "no-needle, no-stitch, small incision" procedure. Ninety-five percent of patients undergoing cataract surgery experience improved vision and very little post-operative discomfort.
After Cataract Surgery
Everyone heals differently, but most patients can return to normal daily activities the day after surgery.
We will usually want to see you back in our offices within 24 hours after your procedure. You'll need to use prescription eye drops to guard against infection and help your eye heal. We may also ask you to wear a protective shield at night to prevent you from rubbing your eye.
