Cataract Doctors in Phoenixville, PA
Do you know or suspect you have cataracts? Are colors not as bright as they used to be? Does your vision seem as if you are looking through a waterfall? If you answered yes to either or both questions, you may have a cataract, particularly if you are over age 60. In Phoenixville PA? Cataract doctors are at Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania in nearby Pottstown.
What is the treatment?
Cataracts are an age-related condition caused by a natural protein breakdown in the eye. If you have a cataract, you will need surgery to remove it. This surgery is one of the safest and most effective of all surgical procedures performed today.
During the outpatient cataract laser-assisted surgery, the surgeon will remove the clouded cataract lens and replace it with a clear artificial intraocular lens (IOL). The lens can even include vision correction to correct for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and even astigmatism. The surgery takes about an hour, then you will be able to go home and rest the same day.
