The eye surgeons of Vision Surgery Consultants have years of experience in successful cataract surgery. A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye, which causes blurry vision. However, cataracts do not result in permanent vision loss. While there are numerous causes of cataracts, age is the most common factor. More than 50% of people over the age of 60 (and even those younger) suffer from cataracts.
Symptoms of Cataracts:
- Blurred or double vision
- Difficulty reading, especially in low light
- Glare, halos, starbursts around lights at night
- Difficulty seeing at night
- Vision that worsens in sunlight
- Dulling of colors
- Frequent prescription changes for glasses
Cataract surgery is a safe and effective way to improve your vision. Over 3 million Americans a year have cataract surgery, making it the most common surgery performed in the country.
The Wichita cataract specialists at Vision Surgery Consultants utilize the latest techniques in microincisional cataract surgery. Your cataract is removed by breaking it into small pieces with phacoemulsification or ultrasonic sound waves. It is then replaced with an artificial lens implant through an incision smaller than 2.5 mm. Smaller incisions afford several advantages:
- Safer surgery
- Self-sealing incisions that do not require stitches
- Faster recovery
Our eye surgeons are certified on the latest and most advanced implants available. If you desire more freedom from glasses after cataract surgery, you may consider a premium lens implant. If you have been diagnosed with cataracts or are concerned you may have them, please schedule a consultation with the experts at Vision Surgery Consultants.
