Top Cataract Surgeons in Palmyra, PA
If you live or work in Palmyra, PA and notice blurred vision, light sensitivity or halos around lights, particularly when driving at night, you may have a cataract, so come see the top cataract surgeons at the Lebanon office of Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania.
Most people can have a cataract for years without ever noticing it. There is no pain, and your vision seems fine at first. However, you may begin noticing that colors seem duller and not as vibrant. It may seem like you are looking through a waterfall, and your vision is clouded or fuzzy. Reading, watching TV or doing work on the computer may become more difficult. Driving at night is more difficult as well.
Unfortunately, eye drops or medications won’t make cataracts go away. Surgery is the only way to remove a cataract and restore your vision. At first, patients might be able to get by with changing their eyeglasses prescription to help with the blurry vision, but surgery is eventually needed to permanently fix the problem.
Having said that, having a cataract does not necessarily mean that it should be removed right away. Many patients live with cataracts for years, but when your blurred vision starts to interfere with normal daily activities like reading or driving, you should have the surgery.
The cataract surgeons at Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania offer patients the latest advancements in eye care. They continually update their skills, and all are either board certified or board-eligible by the American Board of Ophthalmology. Rest assured that you will be safe and comfortable in our state-of-the-art surgical suites.
No-Stitch Cataract Surgery
During the surgery, the cloudy natural lens is removed. The surgeon will then replace it with a new clear artificial lens known as an intraocular lens implant (IOL). The IOL will be permanently placed in your eye. Stitches are not required; the lens will heal in place. The lens never needs to be cleaned and can’t fall out. It functions just like your normal lens does and you won’t even notice that it’s there.
Our No Stitch Cataract Surgery technique is the latest surgical technique. This method offers several advantages. First, we use anesthetic eye drops instead of injections. No needles are involved! The eye drops actually allow patients to see well almost immediately following surgery, and this form of anesthesia is much safer for patients who take blood thinners.
No stitches are required. Ultrasound high frequency sound waves soften the cloudy lens, then surgeons remove it and replace it with an artificial lens (IOL) that does not require stitches because the incision is so tiny and will heal on its own. No stitches means fewer restrictions, and you will be able to get back to your normal daily activities much faster.
These days, the artificial lens technology is so good that we can use vision correction lenses when we remove the cataract. Goodbye old, cloudy lens, and hello new Hi-Tech lens that repairs your cataract and your vision at the same time. We have lenses that correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Many patients no longer need glasses, while some need reading glasses to see fine detail. Our patients are pleasantly surprised when they can be free of glasses. During your initial exam, we will determine the best lens for you.
