Cataracts are one of the most common age-related visual problems; in fact, everyone will develop cataracts at a certain age.
But with today’s medical advances, there is no reason to let blurry vision from cataracts hold you back from living the full, active life you desire. Cataract surgery is quick, virtually painless and can give you the clear vision you need to maintain independence and a great quality of life.
Read on as the team at Aucello EyeCare Center describes some of the advantages to cataract treatment.
Reduces Your Risk of Falls and Accidents
Cloudy, limited vision from cataracts is a major contributing factor to falls and accidents. Falling or getting into a motor vehicle accident later in life can have catastrophic complications. However, removing cataracts significantly lowers the risk of suffering a fall or getting into a car accident.
Helps You Regain Independence and Confidence
Cataract surgery can help you reclaim confidence in many areas of your life. You do not have to rely on help for day-to-day tasks like cleaning or doing laundry. You can confidently drive safely (especially at night) without putting yourself in harm’s way; you can also confidently travel to new and unfamiliar places.
Improves Overall Quality of Life
Cataract surgery can restore the vision you need to do the things you love. You can read, watch television, work on crossword puzzles, sew and cook. You can socialize whenever you wish and avoid isolating yourself at home. Clearer vision from cataract surgery can give you a new lease on life!
Cataract Surgery at a Glance
Cataract surgery is one of the safest and most routine surgeries performed today. It is very fast and virtually painless. With modern techniques and technology, there has never been a better time to have cataract surgery.
Through a small incision, the eye’s natural, cloudy lens is gently broken up into small pieces, and the pieces are removed from the eye. An artificial lens (intraocular lens, or IOL) is carefully positioned in the membrane capsule that held the natural lens to restore clear vision.
