Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery: Facts about Cataracts
Have you ever experienced your glasses or sunglasses fog up after stepping outside of a really cold building or after getting out of your vehicle on a hot, summer day? Imagine looking through permanently foggy glasses. Some of you may be experiencing now… if you have cataracts.
As we age, cataracts are caused when the natural lenses of our eyes become cloudy. It is a painless process; however, overtime cataracts can cause our eyesight to become increasingly worse. Planet Vision Eyecare says cataracts are the leading cause of blindness all over the world.
Common symptoms of cataracts include:
- Cloudiness or blurred vision
- Having to change your glasses or contact prescription frequently
- Colors appearing dull and faded
- Difficulty seeing or driving at night
- Sensitivity to light or glares
- Double vision
These symptoms can be frustrating. There is no need to live with cataracts when there are procedures which can remove cataracts to restore or improve your vision. At South Georgia / North Florida Eye Partners, we provide patients with the latest in surgical technology at our recently-built surgery center. At our surgery center, our team of experienced ophthalmologists work to provide patients with the best care using LenSx® technology to surgically remove cataracts.
LenSx® Laser Cataract Surgery is an advanced alternative to traditional cataract surgery. The procedure is blade-free and laser-assisted. The goal of this surgery is to remove the old lens of the eye and replace it with a new, clear lens. This new take on cataract surgery offers ophthalmologists micron-level precision, accuracy, and predictability while using a laser instead of a blade.
