Cataracts are the most common cause of vision loss in older people, but can affect those of any age, even infants. When eyeglasses or contact lenses can no longer counteract the impact that this eye disease has on your vision, depend on us at Armesto Eye Associates for a surgical solution. You can have your vision restored and be free of the symptoms that cataracts cause.
Like with most of the common eye diseases, cataracts develop and can progress without any noticeable indications. At some point, however, you will either be diagnosed with them during a routine eye exam with our Mechanicsburg eye doctor, or you will being to experience signs like cloudy and blurry vision, sensitivity to glare, and poor night vision. Many people do very well for a period of time, which varies based on the individual, with special corrective lenses that provide improved vision even with cataracts. But when you reach the stage where you can no longer achieve the desired results that way, our Mechanicsburg eye doctor can perform a procedure in which your natural eye lenses are removed, and replaced with prosthetics, or what are called intraocular lens implants (IOLs). When they were first developed, they were monofocal, which meant that you would still need glasses or contacts to see clearly and sharply in some cases. With new multi-focal IOLs, though, you will be free of prescription eyewear entirely. You can enjoy a level of vision that you may have given up on ever having again. The procedure itself is safe and has a high rate of success, so you can feel confident in the results of it.
