Cataract Removal Surgery: What Can You Expect
Blurred or hazed vision with trouble viewing near and far distances signify that you may have Cataracts. Cataracts are a discolored or cloudy abnormality found on the eyes lens. Cataracts cannot be corrected with glasses or corneal reflective surgery, but today with Cataract Removal Surgery you can regain vision.
It is estimated that 50% of Americans have Cataracts by age 75, and over three million Cataract Surgical Treatments are performed every year. Factors that increase your risk of cataracts include sun exposure lacking proper eye protection, smoking, family history, diabetes, and eye injuries.
If you are diagnosed with Cataracts bright colors are faded, you see double at certain times, and vision at night or in dimly lit areas is increasingly difficult. Grand Rapids Ophthalmology is dedicated to 100% patient satisfaction and will help you see clearly again with Cataract Removal Surgery.
Cataract Surgical Treatment removes the cloudy lens and replaces it with an intraocular lens or IOL. An intraocular lens is a clear artificial lens and at our office, we offer four different options. Two of these options are Traditional IOLs and Advanced Technology IOLs.
Traditional IOLs is accepted by most insurance plans and improves vision but post-operation glasses use may still be necessary. In comparison, Advanced IOLs correct astigmatism while amending near and distance vision. Advanced IOLs may come at additional costs but here at Grand Rapids Ophthalmology, we offer different payment plans and options.
Our specialists will examine your overall eye health, and discuss your individual lifestyle and visual needs to find your optimum lens.
Cataract Surgical Treatments are performed in our Center for Medicare Services, which is certified and accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care.
No overnight stay is required for Cataract Removal Surgery and someone must be present to drive you home post procedure. Recovery involves medicated eye drops, protective eye shield use during rest, and post-operative sunglasses when outside.
