Do You Have a Cataract?
Cataracts are not usually painful and, at first, you may not even know you have one.
If you notice that colors are not as vibrant as they once were or that you have more trouble reading, watching TV, or doing work on the computer, you may have a cataract.
If you are experiencing blurred vision, greater sensitivity to light, halos and glare around lights (especially oncoming headlights), and are having a hard time driving at night, you may have a cataract.
No Stitch Cataract Surgery
Cataract surgery has been performed for many years using various different methods, but there have been many advancements in modern cataract surgery in just the last decade. The advantages of the latest No Stitch Cataract Surgery technique we perform at Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania include:
- No injections: Instead of injecting anesthetic into the eye, our cataract specialists use anesthetic eye drops. This type of anesthesia allows patients to see well almost immediately following surgery. It is also preferable for patients who take blood thinners.
- No stitches: Today, most cataract surgeries are performed using ultrasound (high frequency sound waves) to soften the cloudy lens, remove it, and replace it with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). In most cases, no stitches are required because the incision is tiny and will seal itself. Without uncomfortable stitches to care for, there will be fewer post-surgery restrictions on your activities.
- No glasses: The latest artificial lens implant technologies enable many patients to see well up-close and at a distance without glasses. Although you may still need glasses on occasion for the finest vision, patients who choose our newest Hi-Tech lenses are pleased to be free from the inconvenience of wearing glasses. You and your doctor will decide which lens is best for you.
