From intraocular lens implants to Nd YAG laser capsulotomy, here at DoctorQA you will be sure to find quality, understandable information about the most advanced cataract eye surgery procedures. Cataracts develop with age, clouding the lenses of your eyes and reducing your ability to see things crisply and clearly. Left untreated cataracts can blur a person’s vision to the point of blindness, however, cataract surgery can drastically improve a person’s vision to the point of restoration—it’s the difference between night and day.
Cataract eye surgery has improved the vision of over 90% of patients—that means nearly everybody that undergoes cataract surgery has benefitted from it immensely (which is why it is one of the most common procedures in the world). Cataract surgery procedures, such as the intraocular lens implant, have extremely low complication rates and last less than 90 minutes—physicians have perfected and streamlined cataract removal. During the intraocular lens implant procedure, physicians remove the cloudy lens, the cataract, from a patient’s eye and replace it with a premium synthetic lens, restoring a patient’s vision. Visit the intraocular lens implant page for detailed information about this procedure.
In the unlikely chance that cataracts resurface years after surgery (also known as ‘after-cataracts’) has taken place, Nd YAG laser capsulotomy can be used to fully restore a patient’s vision. In laser capsulotomy a physician utilizes a laser to make a hole in the middle of the cloudy lens of a patient’s eye; it is a noninvasive procedure that restores vision without any complications.
