A cataract is when the natural and clear lens inside your eyes that helps to focus light and allows images to be seen sharply begins to form a cloudy layer. The lens slowly becomes opaque as the eye ages. As the lens becomes cloudy, light cannot pass through easily, and the images become blurry. The cloudy lens is a cataract.
Dr. Miguel Sarabia uses the most advanced techniques and state of the art equipment when performing cataract surgery. Several options of intra-ocular lens (IOL) implants are available. Crystalens®, ReSTOR®, and Technis Multifocal™ lens implants help you to see clearly at many distances.
Although each patient is different, after surgery, you can expect your vision to be blurry for a couple of days. Most patients experience slight redness and sore eyes for several days to a week while your eye is healing.
Remember that each patient is different and you might encounter other effects after surgery; please call the office with any questions or concerns.
