What are cataracts?
Cataracts are a natural part of your eye’s aging process. In fact, over 50% of individuals at or above the age of 60 will develop a cataract in one or both eyes. Blurred vision, which is due to a clouding of your eye’s natural lens, is the main symptom of cataracts.
While most cataracts develop slowly over many years, individuals with certain conditions may be susceptible to fast-growing cataracts. Luckily, the fact that cataracts are common means that cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed eye surgeries in the world.
Laser cataract surgery in Houston
One of the most frequently asked questions we receive here at Eye Center of Texas is, “Is cataract surgery safe?” We are happy to report that, when performed by professionals, both traditional and laser cataract surgery are very safe procedures.
When comparing laser cataract surgery vs. traditional cataract surgery, however, many surgeons would argue that laser cataract surgery is a more accurate procedure. That’s because laser cataract surgery is blade-free. The Eye Center of Texas surgeons use the state-of-the-art LenSx femtosecond laser to customize your cataract surgery to the specific needs of your eye.
Lens replacement surgery in Houston
During cataract surgery, your doctor will remove your eye’s cloudy lens and replace it with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). The standard replacement lens is the monofocal IOL. However, some patients may prefer a multifocal IOL or need a Toric IOL lens for astigmatism. Talk with your doctor about which IOL will best fit the needs of your eyes.
