You have likely noticed that your eyesight is getting a bit more fuzzy. You thought it might be just an old prescription for your glasses, but then you found out that you have cataracts. You will need to take care of your cataracts at some point before you completely lose your eyesight, but you want to make sure that you get the best care and treatment when you do. SightTrust Eye Institute has clients all over Boca Raton, Palm Beach, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Weston, Parkland, and the surrounding areas. They perform premium cataract surgery with the best equipment available.
A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. For people who have cataracts, seeing through cloudy lenses is a bit like looking through a frosty or fogged-up window. Clouded vision caused by cataracts can make it more difficult to read, drive a car (especially at night) or see the expression on a friend’s face. This condition affects both eyes, although it is common for one eye to be worse. The lens sits behind the iris – the color of the eye – and is responsible for approximately 1/3 of the eye’s focusing power.
Early symptoms of cataracts may include a continually changing glasses prescription; decreased comfort when driving at night; glare, starbursts, and halos around lights; and blurred near vision, especially in dim light. With time, these changes make it increasingly difficult to read even in the brightest lighting conditions. People often give up driving, limit the amount they read, and find it difficult to play sports. This loss of activity can be avoided by having cataract surgery, and SightTrust Eye Institute offers the best options when it comes to this surgery.
The Cataract Solution
While cataracts are irreversible naturally, undergoing the premium cataract surgery from SightTrust Eye Institute can bring your eyesight back to what you used to have. Cataract surgery replaces the worn-out lens with a clear intraocular lens implant (IOL). This outpatient procedure takes about 10 minutes to perform per eye, requires only eye drops as an anesthetic, and has a quick recovery. Don’t wait to get your eyesight back so you can continue to enjoy the different activities that you enjoy doing in Boca Raton, Palm Beach, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Weston, Parkland, and the surrounding areas.
