See Clearly Again with Safe and Quick Cataract Surgery from the Professionals
Is your vision blurry or foggy?
Do colors appear dull or muted?
Does sunlight or artificial light seem too bright to you?
Do you have trouble seeing at night or see halos around lights?
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, you may have cataracts. A cataract is the gradual clouding of the eyes that many experience as they age. This condition is the leading cause of vision loss in patients 55 and over.
Fortunately, in this day and age, having cataracts is not a serious cause for concern. With a relatively simple procedure, your sight can be restored with extraordinary results. At Aslett-Kurica Eye Center, we help restore your vision safely and quickly with the most advanced and proven cataract correction procedures.
Cataracts: A Natural Part of Aging
As you age, the lens inside of your eye can become clouded. The clouded lens prevents light and images from reaching your retina clearly and produces dulled colors, blurry vision, and light sensitivity. Cataracts can be the reason your reading glasses or bifocals no longer seem effective in helping you see clearly.
But, a cataract is not a “film” over the eye, and neither eating healthy nor lasers will make it go away as is sometimes suggested. Cataracts are just the natural result of the aging process. Because cataracts are not a film on the lens but the clouding of the actual lens, the best way to correct cataracts is to simply replace the old lens with a new, clear artificial one.
Cataract removal is one of the safest and most effective surgical procedures. In fact, more than 3 million cataract surgeries are performed each year in the United States and can significantly improve your life.
Cataract Surgery Expectations
- Cataract surgery is quick and pain free, usually requiring no more than 30 minutes.
- Anesthetic is given to numb the nerves in and/or around your eye before surgery.
- Before and/or after surgery your doctor may prescribe eye drops to help prevent infection and reduce swelling.
- Most patients have improved vision soon after surgery and can return to normal activities the next day, but your sight may continue to improve over the course of several weeks.
