If you’ve been diagnosed with a cataract, you may have many questions about treatments. While non-surgical treatments won’t remove a cataract, they may be able to improve your visual comfort and quality of life for a period of time, until the cataract worsens. Surgery is the only treatment option to medically remove a cataract and treat the effect on your eyesight. Ask your ophthalmologist about which treatment method is right for you.
If you think you might have a cataract, the only way to know for sure is to have an eye examination.
Cataract surgery is a safe and effective way to restore vision. It is done on an outpatient basis and only requires a short recovery period.
Although cataract surgery has been around for many years, the last half-century has seen remarkable improvements in the procedure with Micro-Incision, IOLs and Laser Assisted surgeries.
