Cataracts place a physical barrier in the way of your efforts to see clearly. These clumps of proteins in the normally transparent lens of your eye slowly thicken into a solid mass that prevents light from entering the eye normally. Cataracts can cause blurred vision, light sensitivity, color perception changes, or even total blindness. Cataracts place a physical barrier in the way of your efforts to see clearly. These clumps of proteins in the normally transparent lens of your eye slowly thicken into a solid mass that prevents light from entering the eye normally. Cataracts can cause blurred vision, light sensitivity, color perception changes, or even total blindness. Thankfully, surgery to remove cataracts can help you regain your former clarity of vision. Modern-day techniques mainly use laser technology for accuracy and safety. In addition, eye surgeons help patients enhance their vision post-surgery with state-of-the-art intraocular lenses. Discover more about these technologies and how they help with your cataracts.

Cataract Surgery With Lasers

Laser technology is still relatively new for cataract surgery. However, it is a much more precise and accurate technology than older, traditional cataract removal options. With laser technology, an eye surgeon is able to get an in-depth, 3D view of your eye in preparation for your surgery. With this technology, your eye surgeon can plan and prepare for exact measurements, removal, and treatment, including intraocular lenses. The eye surgeon uses the 3D imaging to understand the severity, nature, and size of your cataract.

Benefits of Laser Surgery

Laser surgery for cataracts offers various advantages. For example, laser surgery is:
  • Customizable: With the 3D imaging, a surgeon is able to customize your cataract removal according to your exact eye’s size and shape.
  • Accurate: Laser 3D imaging allows for precise measurements and accurate removal.
  • Time-reducing: Because your cataract removal is exact and accurate, this often decreases the time of your overall surgery. You can remove your cataracts quicker and be on your way to better vision sooner.
  • Successful: Because laser surgery is so accurate and precise, this increases the chances for success substantially. You will not usually have to worry about cataracts returning or blurry vision that could impact your quality of life.
If you are unsure if laser surgery is right for you, speak to an experienced eye surgeon today about your questions and concerns, as well as your applicable status for this surgery.

Enhanced Vision With Intraocular Lenses

Even with cataract surgery, some people might need to eventually wear glasses or contacts. However, with the help of cutting-edge intraocular lenses, they will not usually have to. Intraocular lenses are almost always used in conjunction with cataract surgery. They are an artificial lens that replaces the old lens the surgery removed. However, not every intraocular lens is the same. Some lenses are monofocal, which means they focus on one point. This can cause you to see vividly from a distance but have blurry vision up close, which would require you to wear glasses. However, the highest-quality intraocular lenses often work as trifocals and even help with astigmatisms. That means you will get the best results for your vision. These results can mean no blurriness across your entire vision, high-definition perception and correction, the ability to see bright and vivid colors, and no reliance on contacts or glasses, as well as less disturbance from bright lights. If you want to learn more about high-quality, state-of-the-art intraocular lenses, speak to your eye surgeon today about your questions and concerns.
