Cataracts are a common eye problem that people of all ages suffer from. Some symptoms include cloudy vision and trouble seeing at night. This condition is caused as the lens in the eye becomes less and less clear over time.
Although cataracts can be present in younger people, they are more common among the older, because as you age, this lens becomes opaque and loses the clarity is once had. A number of things can accelerate the process, however, including diabetes and certain medications (like corticosteroids).
In the early stages, a cataract is treated by changing a patient’s prescription glasses. However, this is not a permanent solution. Currently, the only permanent treatment for cataracts is surgery. If you are looking to completely get rid of your cataracts and not simply treat the symptoms, cataract eye surgery is the option for you.
During the surgery, your cataract will be removed using a laser. This laser is directed at the lens in your eye, which dissolves. After its removal, the lens is replaced by a manufactured intraocular lens. With this new lens, your vision will be clear.
Here at Aloha Eye Clinic, we will perform your cataract eye surgery with extreme precision and the utmost care. This surgery is extremely safe and does not leave any kind of scarring, especially as we use the highly advanced intraocular lenses and lasers. We ensure that you will not experience any kind of discomfort or pain during the process. The procedure only takes about 10 minutes to perform and is therefore offered as an outpatient procedure. You will be able to leave right after the surgery is over.
The cataract eye surgery does not require much recovery time. You will be able to resume your normal activities within a week of the procedure. However, you should refrain from doing any strenuous physical activity for about a month after the procedure.
