When the clear vision you once had is now blurry and fuzzy and you see a halo around lights, it’s time for cataract surgery. It often happens and cataract surgery is the only solution. Cataracts are the clouding of the eye lens. Cataract surgery will remove the cloudiness and restore clear vision. Residents of Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Weston, Miami, and the surrounding areas, will only trust Dr. Andrew Shatz to perform their cataract surgery. As one of the leading cataract surgeons in the nation, Dr. Shatz has advanced laser cataract surgery training and has performed more than 25,000 intraocular lens procedures over the last 20 years.
Premiere Cataract Surgery Center in South Florida
Cataract surgery doesn’t require a hospital stay or long term recovery periods. The SightTrust Institute is the premier cataract surgery center, featuring the most advanced technology in cataract surgery. Before every cataract surgery, the doctor and staff at SightTrust Institute provide a thorough examination to determine which laser surgery procedure is best for you. The cataract surgery can take approximately five to twenty minutes and general anesthesia is not used. Dr. Shatz can begin this painless procedure using only eye drops to numb your eyes and a mild sedative. Most patients often resume their normal lifestyle almost immediately. Within 30 minutes of the cataract surgery, patients from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Plantation, Palm Beach, and the surrounding areas can go home. Take it a little slower immediately after surgery and it could take one to two weeks for your eyesight to adjust.
Cataract Surgery for One or Both Eyes
Many patients from Boca Raton, Miami, Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and the surrounding areas, require cataract surgery in both eyes. It may be possible to have cataract surgery on both eyes during the same visit, depending on the health of your eyes. Oftentimes, the doctor will suggest waiting one week after the first cataract surgery, until your eye has completely healed and your vision has stabilized. If it’s determined you are a candidate, he will perform bilateral cataract surgery during the same visit. The recovery time for bilateral cataract surgery is like the recovery period for cataract surgery in one eye. Don’t do anything strenuous after cataract surgery and try to keep your eyes free from dirt and debris. Within a few hours of surgery your vision will start to improve.
