What Is a Cataract?
A cataract is an eye condition caused by the clouding of a person’s eye lens. Cataracts may form in one or both eyes at different times and are more common in older people. Some of the symptoms include blurry vision, problems seeing things at night, increased light sensitivity, and double vision. Cataracts can be caused by several things, such as smoking, UV radiation, certain conditions like diabetes, and the usage of medications such as steroids.
How Laser Cataract Surgery Works
Laser cataract surgery is an advanced eye surgery that uses laser technology to remove the natural lens and replace it with an artificial one to achieve clear vision. During this procedure, the doctor will use a blade to get into the front of the eye and other equipment to make an incision to reach the cataract.
We then use ultrasound waves to break the cataract into small pieces before removing them. An artificial lens is inserted into the eye. The procedure does not take a lot of time and you can return home the same day. Our ophthalmologist will provide some advice on what to expect and what to avoid during the recovery process.
