Considering Cataract Surgery

Cataracts are cloudy areas in the lens of the eye. They normally develop over the course of a person’s life and nearly everyone over 60 years of age has some degree of cataract formation. When cataracts impair vision, it is time to trade in the clouded lens for a crystal clear replacement

What Happens During Cataract Surgery?

Modern cataract surgery involves removing the clouded natural lens and implanting a clear replacement lens. The standard replacement lens delivers vision in best focus at a single distance (far distance is most common). Most patients who receive a standard lens require glasses for reading and other near activities. When astigmatism is present, patients require glasses for clarity at both far and near distances.

For some cataract patients, freedom from glasses and contact lenses is important. Associated Eye Care offers the latest advanced technology lens implants. Multifocal and Extended Depth of Focus lenses [link to multifocal lens implant page] reduce reliance on reading glasses while maintaining excellent distance vision. Toric lenses [link to toric lens implant page] improve clarity and reduce the need for glasses by correcting astigmatism.
