When your eyesight starts to become fuzzy and unclear, it’s time to visit your eye doctor. In many cases, these symptoms are from cataracts. Cataract symptoms can include blurriness and discomfort when driving at night, along with starburst patterns, halos, and glared vision. Another symptom of cataracts is not being able to read clearly, instead reading becomes blurry, when not in bright light. Most often, when you have cataracts, you will find that you have stopped doing things you would normally do, such as driving at night. Visiting a cataract surgeon and having a proper exam will often confirm that you require cataract surgery. Cataract surgery is the answer to the above problems and will give you back your life that you loved. Patients in Miami, Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Plantation, Fort Lauderdale, and Weston rely on the prognosis from cataract surgeon, Andrew Schatz, and trust in his ability to perform cataract surgery.
Quick and Easy Cataract Surgery
Cataract surgery is the replacement of the worn-out lens with an IOL implant. An IOL is an intraocular lens which is placed in the patient’s eye, where the original lens once was. Cataract surgery only takes approximately ten minutes per eye. Prior to the surgery, eye drops are placed in your eyes as anesthesia. Many are happy to not have to endure general anesthesia. The lack of general anesthesia allows you to leave the doctor’s office about an hour or so after surgery and go back to your home in Miami, Palm Beach, Boca Raton, and the surrounding areas. Your near and distance vision can often improve after cataract surgery, which eliminates the future need for glasses while driving or reading.
Cataract Surgery for Both Eyes
There is a possibility of having both eyes operated on the same day, if the doctor approves, after giving you an examination. In some cases, the doctor will recommend scheduling two different days for cataract surgery. This will give you time to heal after the first surgery and get used to your new vision. Cataract surgery is a surgery that is performed often, providing great results for patients from Boca Raton, Plantation, Fort Lauderdale, Weston, and other local towns. Patients are open to cataract surgery because of the short operating time, which can be up to twenty minutes, and the ability to go home after the procedure. There is no overnight hospital stay required. For more information on cataract surgery, reach out to SightTrust Eye Institute at 1-877-878-7890 or visit www.sighttrust.com.
