Cataracts are a common cause of vision loss, but this doesn’t have to be the case. With a 98% success rate, cataract surgery has been a reliable and effective treatment. That is why experts recommend younger patients to go through the procedure as soon as possible and not wait for the condition to get worse.
In this article, iSee VisionCare, a neurovisual specialist that can help with symptoms like eye strain and anxiety, discusses the benefits of getting an early cataract surgery.
A Safe Procedure for Your Eyes
Cataract surgery takes no longer than 15 minutes, thanks to modern equipment and techniques. The success of this procedure can be attributed to these technological advancements as well.
For instance, laser-assisted cataract surgery is now widely used as it allows the surgeon to use optical coherence tomography (OCT) in creating a 3D map of the eye. With the help of this map, the laser can make an incision with accurate location, length and depth. Monofocal, toric or multifocal IOLs can also be customized to meet particular vision needs.
Schedule an Eye Exam
Double vision, blurred vision, light sensitivity and difficulty seeing at night are some symptoms of cataracts. If you are experiencing any of these, pay your doctor a visit.
It’s best to seek diagnosis from an expert and immediately treat your eye condition. Eye doctors can also help you decide on the right timing for cataract surgery especially if you’re concerned about the recovery period, which typically varies from patient to patient.
There’s really no point in delaying the procedure. In fact, removing cataracts earlier gives you better chances at a successful outcome, makes the procedure safer and allows for better awareness.
