According to the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS), 3 million Americans undergo cataract surgery each year. During cataract surgery, the old clouded lens of the eye is removed and replaced with a new artificial lens to restore clear vision. In the past, the monofocal intraocular lens was the only lens used in cataract surgery. Since 2005, new technology allows Christenbury Eye Center to offer you other lens options that can correct astigmatism for clear distance vision as well as multifocal lens providing near vision correction. The new cataract lens technology can eliminate the need for reading glasses and bifocals.
What is a Cataract?
A cataract is clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. The cloudy area progresses with age causing blurriness and other visual disturbances. Without treatment, a cataract can eventually lead to vision loss. Cataracts can affect one or both eyes and develops as a natural part of aging. More than half of all Americans will have had a cataract by age 80. Diabetes, family history, injury to the eye, certain medications, and exposure to sunlight can all increase the risk of developing cataracts.
Cataracts usually form slowly and without any discomfort. Here are some of the most common symptoms:
How Are Cataracts Detected?
Freedom from Glasses
Patients have a choice as to what type of lens implant they receive for cataract surgery. All of the lens implants are highly effective and, for many people, the decision is based on lifestyle. Information about the lenses we offer is listed below.
• Total Vision Correction – ReSTOR
• Distance Vision Correction – TORIC
• Standard Vision – Monofocal lens
The majority of our cataract surgery patients prefer and choose the ReSTOR multifocal lens to eliminate reading glasses & bifocals after cataract surgery.
