Cataracts is a progressive eye disease. It only grows worse over time, and eventually its effects become more than can be effectively corrected with prescription lenses. At IC Laser Eye Care, we are pleased to have an option that successfully restores your vision by removing the part of your eyes impacted by Bucks County cataracts and replacing them with intraocular lenses (IOLs) that perform their function.
When cataracts first develop, they typically yield no obvious symptoms. Deposits of protein form on the outer part of your natural eye lenses. They grow in quantity and size, which means that you will end up experiencing cloudy or blurry vision, among other possible signs such as colors losing their vividness. Bucks County cataracts are not painful, not do they present any physical harm. They do, however, affect your lifestyle by robbing you of the level of vision you want and need to do things that range from driving to golfing; from using your computer to doing a crossword puzzle. When the disease has advanced and the eyeglasses or contact lenses you have relied upon are no longer enough to address it, our ophthalmologist will determine your suitability for cataracts surgery. It is not possible to separate the cataracts from your eyes’ natural lenses, so the lenses themselves must be removed. They are replacement with state-of-the-art IOLs, either monofocal or multifocal, depending on factors such as what your vision needs are and what your insurance will cover. At worst, you may need glasses for reading, with the IOLs restoring optimal distance vision. Multifocal IOLs give you outstanding vision all around
Wouldn’t it be great to achieve the independence and freedom from Bucks County cataracts? All you have to do is reach out to our office to schedule an examination and consultation with our ophthalmologist.
