When a cataract progresses and decreases vision to a point that it interferes with your lifestyle and daily activities…cataract surgery is the only effective treatment. Cataracts affect more than 22 million people over 40 years of age in the U.S. and are the leading cause of blindness among the country’s older adults. Cataract surgery can offer improved vision, and is one of the safest and most effective procedures performed today. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it could be an indication it’s time to consider cataract surgery:
- When driving, there’s too much glare from the sun or headlights
- You are having problems seeing well enough to read, sew, watch tv or play games
- You are afraid of bumping into objects or falling down
- Your vision doesn’t improve sufficiently when wearing glasses
ECT’s cataract surgeons, Dr. Mark Mayo and Dr. Edward Wade will perform on one eye at a time. This is done to minimize potential complications. Cataract surgery is performed in an outpatient surgical center with local anesthesia. Cataract surgery is day surgery and patients are released directly after surgery.
