Cataract Surgery

What ARE CataractS?

Cataracts occur when the lens of the eye begins to cloud over time. While they don’t cause pain, they can significantly hinder your ability to see. Our office employs a talented team of optometrists and ophthalmologists who specialize in treating cataracts, including refractive cataract surgery and traditional cataract surgery. Our doctors can help you decide on the right course of action. Visit us today to identify cataracts and decide whether or not surgery is the proper course of action for you.

What to Expect from Cataract Surgery

Your doctor will provide you with specific post-op instructions on caring for your eyes, including tips on utilizing the eye drops that will help during the healing process. You may be required to wear a protective shield while your eye heals, and it’s essential that you refrain from touching, rubbing, scratching, or pressing on the affected eye for one week.

After your surgery, you will need a driver to take you home safely, and you will be given written instructions from the surgeon detailing your customized treatment plan and follow-up appointments. Please keep all follow-up appointments and call our office if you have additional questions.
