Cataracts are cloudy areas that form in the lens of the eye, usually as people get older. The symptoms of cataracts include blurriness, sensitivity to light, difficulty reading, and a slow decline in night vision.
Because there are no pharmacological treatments for cataracts, eye care providers typically try to mitigate these symptoms by optimizing vision using glasses and contact lenses. If these measures fail, however, surgery is the only other option for fixing the problem.
Pacific ClearVision Institute’s cataract surgery is a painless and straightforward process. Generally speaking, the surgeon removes the clouded lens and replaces it with an artificial one. However, in some cases, the lens is not removed at all, but rather incised and cleared out using a tiny vacuum. Both treatments are performed under local anesthetic and take only 10 minutes to complete.
In terms of replacement lenses, Pacific ClearVision Institute supplies both variable power and adjusting lenses, which offer multiple focal lengths and reduce reliance on glasses. The replacement lenses are artificial but designed to feel natural, while still providing clear and vivid vision.
Patients typically feel very little pain during or after the surgery. Because the eyes heal quickly, and vision is usually restored within hours or days, most people can resume their normal activities right away. Follow-ups might be needed just to ensure that no film develops behind the newly implanted lens. New glasses might also be prescribed to accommodate the new lenses.
“Cataract surgery is one of the most frequently performed operations that helps countless individuals regain quality vision,” said a spokesperson for the company. “Nine out of ten patients often obtain somewhere between 20/20 and 20/40. There are many options for you to consider when having cataract surgery. Our surgeons will help you determine which options best fit you and your lifestyle.”
