How is Cataract Surgery Performed?
If someone is suffering from cataracts, the first step is going to be to do a full evaluation. We will ask you about your symptoms, when they developed, how bad they get, what makes them better, what makes them worse, and any previous treatments that might have been tried. After this, our team will do a detailed eye exam to evaluate the entirety of each eye and not just cataracts.
If we decide that cataract surgery is the right option for you, we will discuss this option with you in detail. We will go over the risks and benefits. Fortunately, cataract surgery is something that we perform on a regular basis. This means that we have a tremendous amount of experience with this procedure and complications are rare.
On the day of the procedure, we will take you back to the procedure area. We will use anesthesia to control pain and discomfort. Then, we will remove cataracts slowly and carefully. After the procedure is done, we will take you to the recovery area and update you on how the procedure went. Follow-up appointments are generally needed to ensure the recovery process is going smoothly. This procedure can improve your vision drastically.
