Cataracts are highly common in older adults. At Eye Care Associates Inc., which serves Austintown, Boardman, Youngstown, Warren, and East Liverpool OH, we help patients of all ages receive comprehensive and quality eye care to help with various vision issues, including cataracts. Whether you need routine eye care or cataract surgery, we will discuss your treatment options thoroughly and help find the suitable choice that will let you see more clearly.
What Are Cataracts?
Cataracts cause the eye’s natural lens to become clouded. This clouding affects your sight and can lead to blurred or dimmed vision. Cataracts can be caused by age, genetics, trauma, certain medications, and diseases, such as diabetes.
Cataracts Treatment Options
At Eye Care Associates Inc., we offer personalized treatment plans for cataracts that are tailored to your condition. If you are diagnosed with cataracts, our eye doctors will evaluate your overall health and discuss all viable treatments options. Depending on your condition, this may include lifestyle modifications, such as wearing sunglasses to avoid bright lights, prescription glasses, contact lenses, medicated drops, or shields to protect from light glare and radiation, nutritional supplements, and in some cases, cataract surgery.
If our doctor determines that cataract surgery would be the best option for you, we will thoroughly explain the entire process to ensure that you understand all risks and benefits associated with the procedure. Cataract surgery is a safe and effective way to help you see more clearly. Our team is here to provide you with quality care before, during, and after your operation.
When it comes to cataract surgery, you have options. The type of intraocular cataract replacement lens you choose should align to the kind of vision you want after cataract surgery. Cataract surgery involves removing the natural lens in the eye that has become cloudy and replacing it with an artificial lens (known as an intraocular lens or IOL). Depending on the lens you choose with your surgeon, cataract surgery may also help you become less dependent on glasses or contact lenses, or even remove the need for them altogether. It’s important to discuss your intraocular lens options with your surgeon prior to surgery to ensure you get the lens most suited to your needs.
Our surgeons use advanced equipment, including the LenSx Laser, to ensure that your surgery is successful, tailored specifically for you, and safe. After the procedure, it is important to take any necessary steps that your doctor recommends to ensure your vision remains clear. We will provide you with advice on how to care for your eyes after surgery and prescribe any necessary medicated drops or glasses.
