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:
- 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.
