What Is Cataract Surgery?

A cataract is the gradual clouding of the eye’s natural lens. This condition will occur in everyone over time, and in over half of all adults over the age of 60. What makes this condition so problematic is that cataracts can cause many symptoms. These symptoms include:

  • Reduced depth perception
  • Diminished color perception
  • Seeing glare in sunlight
  • Worse night vision

Although these symptoms sound serious and problematic, they are actually quite simple to treat with a skilled ophthalmologist. At Brass Eye Center, our doctors are extensively trained in cataract removal and are equipped with technological advances and techniques that will give you the safest and most pain-free vision recovery possible. We offer the latest surgeries and procedures that will remove cataracts and help restore your vision. Virtually all cataract surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis, under topical anesthesia and well over 95% of these surgeries will improve a patient’s vision.

No-Stitch Cataract Surgery

A no-stitch cataract surgery is the most advanced surgical treatment available for cataract removal. No-stitch cataract surgery allows for a less invasive operation while also maintaining the highest standards of surgical care. The procedure is performed through a very small corneal incision that’s also self-sealing. This allows patients to heal faster and resume their normal activities sooner. In addition, it’s also an incredibly quick procedure, the average treatment time will take less than ten minutes. Only drops are needed to numb the eye during this surgery.

Intraocular Lens Implant Surgery

In Intraocular Lens Implant Surgery (IOL surgery), the eye’s natural lens is removed and replaced with an intraocular lens. This type of surgery is a very effective alternative for cataract patients. Before IOLs were used, patients with cataracts had to wear special contact lens or very thick eyeglasses in order to see after the natural lenses were removed during surgery. Now, this is no longer necessary!
