Does Cataract Removal REALLY Work?
Cataract procedures are very effective. With advancements in technology, the cataract operation is even safer and can be tailored to your eyes and your unique vision needs.
In addition to being effective, cataract removal lasts a lifetime. Because the natural lens is removed, the cataract can never grow back. The artificial lens that replaces the natural lens is made to last more than 200 years.
Most patients also find that cataract eye surgery is quick and painless. Cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure, meaning you will go home the same day. You will still need to rest and have someone take you home. However, the overall recovery is typically very easy. Patients can often begin noticing improvements in their vision rather quickly.
Cataract Surgery that’s right for your Lifestyle.
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY LENSES (ATL)
Advancements in Lens Replacement Surgery Intraocular Lenses (IOL) for Cataract or Refractive Lens Exchange
Today’s lens replacement patient demands excellent vision after surgery. Previous lens replacement surgery technologies provided only one focal point: distance, leaving people dependent upon reading glasses or bifocals. Recent advancements in multifocal technology now make it possible for you to read the words on prescription bottles, magazines, newspapers, and computer screens without magnifying glasses or bifocals (even trifocals), while still clearly seeing objects at a distance.
These lenses have the ability to consistently offer improved vision at various ranges – near through distance. Your doctor can discuss with you which lens will best address your visual demands and lifestyle. These lenses are not for everyone and some additional testing will need to be done to determine if you are a great candidate for these IOLs. The majority of patients who have chosen advanced IOLs are very happy with the results and would recommend the procedure to their friends and family who have cataracts.
The choice of lens is an investment that can help you maintain your standard of living and enjoy good vision during every waking moment for the rest of your life.
