About Cataracts and Cataract Surgery
A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s naturally clear lens. When the natural lens becomes cloudy, vision quality is diminished. Many people describe it as similar to looking through a foggy car window or a piece of waxed paper.
Cataract surgery is the only way to remove a cataract and restore clear vision. During surgery, the cloudy natural lens of your eye is removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens called an intraocular lens implant (IOL). Unlike a contact lens, it is placed permanently inside the eye. It cannot fall out, does not require cleaning, and you will not even notice that it’s there.
Depending on your specific vision needs, there are several types of lens implants your cataract specialist might suggest. They include monofocal, multifocal, toric, and accommodating lenses. Each one works in a different way to help achieve vision correction goals. Ultimately, your doctor will know which lens is best suited for your eye and can help you choose the best option.
If you think you may have a cataract, it’s important to visit our offices for evaluation and diagnosis. Sometimes, a condition that seems to be a cataract may actually be another problem altogether.
The cataract doctors at Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania have provided high-quality eye care to thousands of residents of Pottsville, PA, and the region. Get in touch with us today to schedule an evaluation and let us help you restore your good vision.
