Eye1st Vision & Laser Center
Cataract surgery is a wonder of modern medicine that has helped many cataract patients in Atlanta, and all over the world, regain their sight.
A cataract is a clouding of your eye's natural lens, with consequent blurring and degradation of your vision. Over fifty percent of people above the age
of 60, and quite a few younger than that, suffer from cataracts. Currently there is no medical treatment to reverse or prevent the development of cataracts. Once they form, the only way to see clearly again is to have your cataract doctor remove from within the eye by performing outpatient cataract surgery.
Modern cataract surgery has become one of the safest and most predictably beneficial operations performed today. In your parents' or grandparents' time, cataract surgery was usually postponed for as long as possible because it was considered risky and it required a lengthy hospital stay. Today, it is performed on an outpatient basis! In the hands of a capable cataract doctor like Dr. Waring, the process should take 15 minutes or less to complete. Vision improvement can be recognized as soon as the surgery is completed, and many patients are able to see a sharp 20/20 the day after their care.
Many cataract patients choose Premium Intraocular Lenses such as ReSTOR® and Crystalens® instead of traditional lens implants to further improve their vision. Please visit our Premium IOL page or ask about this exciting development at your consultation.
At your appointment, Dr. Waring will explain the various cataract treatment options so that the very best can be selected for your unique needs.
