Are You a Good Candidate for Cataract Surgery?

Are You a Good Candidate for Cataract Surgery?

Most cases of cataracts are related to aging. Over 3 million cataract surgeries are performed in the U.S. each year, with the vast majority yielding excellent outcomes.

If you find that a cataract is getting in the way of regular daily activities, then cataract surgery can greatly improve your quality of life. Blurred vision and light sensitivity are usually significantly improved after the procedure. Our ophthalmologist, Dr. Lasonde, specializes in cataract surgery and has performed thousands of cataract surgeries for our patients. He will perform a comprehensive eye exam to check the overall health of your eyes, evaluate whether there are reasons why you should not have surgery, and identify any risk factors you might have. The surgical procedure is done on an outpatient basis and typically takes about 30 minutes.

Benefits of Corrective Cataract Surgery

There are numerous benefits to surgically correcting cataracts, including the following:

  • Clear Vision: Your eyesight will be significantly clearer and sharper. Colors may even be brighter.
  • No Glasses: Many patients find that they no longer require glasses or contact lenses following surgery.
  • Better Night Vision: Those who previously found night driving difficult usually find it easier after having cataract surgery.
  • Lifestyle Benefits: Having improved vision can help you enjoy more daily activities.

After cataract surgery, many patients find that their eyesight is even sharper than before their cataracts developed.
