Welcome to Best Cataract Removal Eye Doctor and Surgeon in Los Angeles CA
Cataracts are a relatively common condition that causes eyesight to gradually worsen as the lens of the eye becomes cloudy. Though this condition can have a negative impact on a patient’s life, treatment is fairly simple. Learn more about cataract removal surgery with this helpful article.
Just as windows become harder and harder to see through as they become dusty and cloudy, the lenses of our eyes become less and less transparent as they age. This clouding of the eye’s lens is known as cataracts. It’s caused by the natural stiffening and breakdown of the tissue in the lens of the eye, and it’s a part of the aging process.
Because cataracts build up over time, older people tend to be affected more than the young. Comorbid health issues such as diabetes may also accelerate the effects of cataracts. In its early stages, cataracts may not cause too much concern for both doctors and patients as it may not have a dramatic impact on eyesight, but as it progresses over time, people often may not notice how bad it has become. Plus, as cataracts will invariably worsen over time, earlier treatment may be a good idea for some patients. This is particularly so with the tremendous advancement in artificial lens technology. With the specialized or advanced technology intraocular lenses, we are now able to correct near- and far-sightedness, astigmatism, and even near vision difficulties. Furthermore, now the cataract surgery can be done using a specialized laser for even greater safety.
Symptoms of cataracts include
-Cloudy or blurred vision that doesn’t get better with glasses
-Visible milkiness or cloudiness of the eye
-Double vision or “halo” effects
-Seeing colors less vividly
Cataract Procedure and Operation Recovery
When the cataract becomes visually significant, surgical intervention is required. During the surgery, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens to restore sight. There are a few surgical options to consider for cataract treatment. In refractive cataract surgery, a specialized lens, called advanced technology IOL, is used after the cataract removal to correct vision and eliminate or reduce the dependence on glasses. This means that patients who undergo this treatment will experience dramatically improved vision after surgery not only because they’ll no longer have a cloudy lens blocking their eyesight but also because their glasses prescription is corrected as well.
