There are many different factors that can cause the natural lens to become opaque or cloudy and interfere with clear vision. In a healthy eye, light can easily permeate the lens and reach the retina in the rear of the eye. If a portion of the eye lens is hazy or impenetrable, the patient experiences impaired vision. Early detection of cataracts is crucial for a successful surgery. The best way to screen for cataracts is to keep up with routine eye exams.
The most effective way to treat cataracts and improve vision is through surgery. The procedure involves extracting the damaged natural lens and replacing it with a clear prosthetic lens. No special care is required in maintaining the artificial lens. Most patients report a quick recovery post-surgery and improved vision overall. Pinnacle Eye Group knows that everyone is unique therefore results will vary. We specialize in cataract management and will work closely with experienced ocular surgeons to ensure optimal results.
After the procedure, our doctors will examine your eyes to make sure cataract surgery was a success. Treatment results vary, but generally, results occur quickly, and patients are almost instantly able to return to their usual activities post-surgery. It is common to not only experience clearer vision, but also colors appear more vibrant.
