As we age, cataracts, or clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye, can be a problem. The eye's natural lens forms a white matter which blocks light rays from reaching the retina properly, and this leads to such problems as:
Many people don't realize right away that they have, or are developing, cataracts, since they're painless, and the initial symptoms can be very subtle. Therefore, once you're in your 40's, it's important to keep an eye out for any changes in your vision, particularly if you start to notice any of the symptoms listed above. Cataracts can cause blindness if left untreated, so make sure to contact us at the first sign of cataract development.
Carter Eye Center of Dallas, Texas offers modern, state-of-the-art cataract surgery and treatment to our clients throughout the Dallas area to help them regain the freedom of clear vision.
Dallas cataract surgeon, Dr. Harvey Carter, uses the latest technique in performing cataract surgery.
To replace the eye's natural lens, an intraocular lens (IOL) is implanted. Since the incision is so tiny, the eye remains tightly sealed by its natural outward pressure and usually, no stitches are required.
Most patients notice visual improvement immediately after the procedure. Although cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the world, it still requires excellent surgical skill for success. Dr. Carter has years of experience performing cataract surgery for clients throughout the Dallas, Texas area.
