Eye Specialists of Georgia provides world-class cataract solutions.
The term ‘cataract’ refers to any clouding of the crystalline lens inside your eye. As your lens gets cloudier, your vision will gradually become more blurred. Like a dirty camera lens blurs a picture, any significant cataract in your lens will blur what you see. If the cataract blurs your vision severely enough to interfere with your daily routine, it is crucial that you speak with your eye care professional immediately.
During cataract surgery, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a clear implanted lens. At Eye Specialists of Georgia, our surgeons use the most current, ‘no-stitch’ techniques and equipment to safely and comfortably remove your cataracts. Cataract surgery is the most common and successful of surgeries performed in the United States.
A cataract occurs when the lens in the eye can become cloudy and hard. Cataracts can develop from normal aging, from an eye injury, from previous eye surgery, or if you take certain medications. Cataracts may cause blurred vision, dulled vision, sensitivity to light and glare, and/or ghost images. If the cataract changes vision so much that it interferes with your daily life, the cataract may need to be removed. Surgery is the only way to remove a cataract. The alternative to surgery is to not have the cataract removed. If you do not have the surgery, your vision probably will not improve and may continue to get worse.
- Blurred or cloudy vision
- Frequent changes in eyeglass or contact lens prescriptions
- Night glare and/or hazy vision
- Colors that seem to fade
It is critical that an ophthalmologist determine if the above symptoms are truly being caused by a cataract or some other eye problem that must be addressed.
For adult cataract patients, a cataract should be removed only when it interferes with lifestyle and makes it difficult to continue normally enjoyable activities.
