You don’t have to put up with the effects of cataracts, or rely on glasses or contacts to give you better vision in spite of them. Here at Mountain View Eye Center, we offer expertly performed surgery to replace your natural eye lenses with intraocular lens implants (IOLs). It’s safe, effective, and restores a degree of vision that you may have given up on.
In many cases, the initial diagnosis of cataracts is made during a routine eye examination. The symptoms associated with the disease do not show up until it has become advanced. Cataracts are deposits of protein that appear on the surface of your eye lenses. Over time, they increase in size and quantity. At some point, you will notice that your vision is blurry or cloudy. Other typical signs of cataracts are problems seeing at night, and sensitivity to glare. Our Layton eye specialist will perform a complete checkup and do a slit lamp exam. Special corrective eyewear works for the vast majority of people, though updates to the prescription become necessary to address the progression of the disease. If you want to get cataracts surgery, come in for a consultation and examination during which our Layton eye specialist determines if you are a good candidate. The procedure involves removing the lenses and then replacing them with the IOLs. This is all done as part of a single session, under local or general anesthesia, depending on several factors including your preference. There is a high rate of success for our cataracts surgery, and the outcome is that you have unhindered vision once more.
