Here at Vision Center of New York, we are here to help you see your best under any circumstances. Cataracts is a progressive disease that clouds and blurs your vision due to a continuing buildup of protein on the surface of your eye lenses. And while special eyeglasses or contact lenses do an effective job of correcting for the effects of early to mid stage cataracts, for most patients, the need for surgery done by our eye doctor in the Bronx will arrive.
You don’t have to worry, because cataract surgery is safe and typically done on an outpatient basis, taking less than an hour to complete. It is generally only considered when your cataracts have made it difficult or even impossible for you to see at the level you want and need to live your life productively and independently. For many people, this can be years after the initial diagnosis of cataracts. When it does happen, though, there is no reason to hesitate. Our eye doctor in the Bronx has the experience and expertise to make you feel 100% confident in the results. The procedure involves the complete removal of your eye lenses, as there is no way to remove cataracts from the lenses themselves. You will then be free of the visual obstructions that were causing you problems. However, your lenses are responsible for permitting you to focus, and so a substitute must be found. Fortunately, intraocular lens implants (IOLs) can be placed during the same procedure as your natural lenses are removed. And thanks to today’s multifocal IOLs, you will be able to see sharply and clearly at all distances. In many ways, it will feel as if you have brand new eyes.
Depend on our eye doctor in the Bronx for the heights in quality cataracts eye care. With cataract surgery, you will regain your ability to do all the things that you have been unable to, such as driving, engaging in your favorite outdoor activities, using a computer, and much more.
