What are cataracts and how are they diagnosed?

A cataract is the protein clouding of your eye’s natural crystalline lens. As this protein starts to build up the lens becomes clouded and the light reaching the retina is minimized. As the cataract progresses vision becomes blurry, objects become yellowish and the sensation is not unlike looking through a cloudy window or a piece of wax paper. It is very normal to develop cataracts as part of the normal aging process; they say if you live long enough you will eventually develop them, and cataracts can seriously interfere with many of the activities that people later in life typically enjoy.

Not all cataracts develop at same pace and there are certain risk factors that can move this along faster:

  • Diabetes
  • Exposure to sunlight
  • Tobacco use
  • Alcohol drinking

All cataracts will need to be removed surgically and vision can be restored by removing the clouded lens, and replacing it with an intraocular lens. Please consult our Nashville surgeons about the best options for eye implants and how this will affect your vision after cataract surgery.

What Should I Know About Cataract Surgery?

If you are having cataract surgery at Loden iVision Centers you can rest assured, you are in the best hands. With that being said, there are a few things that you need to think about ahead of opting for the procedure. As mentioned previously your natural lens will be replaced during cataract surgery with an intraocular lens implant. Nowadays you can elect to have a premium lens implant or a traditional monofocal implant. Advanced technology lens implants enable vision at multiple distanced while monofocal lens implants will provide vision at one distance only. Some of our patients can achieve vision without dependence on glasses after advanced technology lens implants. There are additional fees for premium lens implants that should be discussed with our surgery counselors. They will discuss the benefits and costs to help you make an informed decision.

Reduced Dependence on Glasses and Contacts

Along with the Laser iCataract Surgery procedure, Loden iVision Centers offers many intraocular lens (IOL) options that will relieve you of cataracts and help you see near, far, and everywhere in between, with reduced or zero dependence on glasses or contacts.

Many thanks to Doctor Loden and his amazing staff! They made something that would otherwise be very intimidating very comforting. Their professionalism and service was off the charts. I am one day post surgery and am pain free and can see better than I have for twenty years. I would recommend them to anyone!

I am so thankful to Dr. Loden. My results from my LASIK surgery were instant. I don't have hardly any vision distortion and it 1 day post surgery, it will just keep getting better each day. I see better now than I've ever been able to with glasses or contacts. I so recommend Dr Loden!!!

Provided by Citysearch - Thanks to Dr. Loden and his staff. I had ILASIK yesterday with the guarantee that I would have 20/20 or better. Now it's the day after and sure enough I have 20/20 in both eyes and Dr. Loden says ""it will only get better."" Everything he has said has been spot on so there is no need to doubt him now. His staff was the nicest people I've ever met in a business environment. If anyone deserves a award it would be Loden Vision Center.
