When you have cataracts, the natural lens clouds, it is difficult to see clearly. Light entering the eye becomes dull, and bright lights cause a halo effect, making it difficult to see clearly. When this happens, it’s time to visit a board-certified ophthalmologist, who will delve into the issues you are having, and offer you solutions to consider. Residents of Miami, Boca Raton, Plantation, and Palm Beach can reach out to SightTrust Eye Institute for a comprehensive exam, and solutions to your issues, such as intraocular lens surgery. The surgery usually takes less than 10 minutes, using only topical anesthesia. After surgery, you will be able to resume your activities. The only recommendation from the doctor and staff is to not touch your eyes for one week after surgery and don’t get water or dirt in your eyes for at least seven days. The doctor will prescribe medicated eye drops which will need to be used for a few weeks.
