If left untreated, cataracts will impact every area of the patient’s life – but surgery improves the clarity of vision and reduces sight-related injuries such as trips and falls.
Cataracts cause the lens of the eye to become clouded, which causes blurry vision and creates more faded colors. Many people also struggle to see clearly at night. The clinic notes that cataracts can make it difficult to perform routine tasks such as reading, driving, and cooking – but these can be undertaken more easily following the surgery.
Depending on the severity of the cataracts, different treatment options are available. Mild cases can often be treated with glasses or contact lenses, while more severe cases may require surgery. Pacific ClearVision Institute will work with patients and their primary eye care provider to provide an effective solution.
When surgery is advised, Pacific ClearVision Institute’s experienced surgeons can remove the clouded lens and replace it with a synthetic one, restoring clarity and sharpness. Synthetic lenses are available with variable power, so the surgery can provide more personalized results. These can be adjusted to provide the ideal level of correction for each patient – and offer a level of freedom and convenience that was previously unavailable.
A spokesperson for the clinic states: “Your primary eye care provider can assess the degree of your cataracts and help you determine if there are options available to you to improve your sight, or if a surgical option may need to be explored. Our doctors here will work closely with you and your primary eye care provider to help determine your visual goals and work out the best possible option for achieving them.”
