Cataract occurs when the natural lens in the eye becomes cloudy. This happens at a different time for everyone, but typically cataracts begin to form around age 40. Most people will experience vision decline at some point due to cataract.
Symptoms of cataract include:
Dulled color vision
Halos around lights
Decline in night vision
Trouble with nighttime headlights
Thankfully, by removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with a new one, we are able to provide a lifetime of improved vision for the vast majority of affected patients.
Lifestyle Cataract Surgery
For many patients, cataract surgery is their best opportunity to achieve the vision goals that fit their lifestyle best. Using surgical techniques customized for each case, most lifestyle cataract surgery patients are able to reach the point where they no longer need to wear glasses to legally drive and perform many daily activities.
Customized Cataract Surgery with Advanced Intraocular Lenses
When a cataract is removed, it is replaced by an intraocular lens (IOL) to restore vision. With advances in IOL technology, custom lenses are now available that significantly improve both the range and clarity of postoperative vision. This provides a more natural vision experience without glasses. At Orangeburg Eye Center we make the most cutting edge IOL options available and affordable to meet our patient’s lifestyle goals.
