Cataracts

Description

Dr. Sheth describes cataracts, a common age-related condition in which the lens of the eye becomes cloudy and causes vision issues, including blurriness and difficulty reading small print. Sheth-Horsley Eye Center performs advanced cataract surgery with no sutures and quick recovery times. We can also easily combine cataract surgery with other procedures, such as glaucoma treatment.

1 00:00:12.400 --> 00:00:16.060 Cataracts are a gradual clouding of the natural crystalline lens of our eye. 2 00:00:16.080 --> 00:00:19.580 It occurs with age, causing blurriness that can manifest 3 00:00:19.600 --> 00:00:24.260 in glare at night from streetlights or headlights, difficulty in reading small 4 00:00:24.290 --> 00:00:26.860 print or the print at the bottom of the TV. 5 00:00:26.890 --> 00:00:30.460 You lose detail in looking at faces from afar. 6 00:00:30.490 --> 00:00:33.280 You can also have dullness in colors, 7 00:00:33.310 --> 00:00:38.260 loss of vibrancy, and vividness of colors over time. 8 00:00:38.290 --> 00:00:40.220 Cataracts are treated with surgery. 9 00:00:40.250 --> 00:00:43.220 Modern day cataract surgery is extraordinarily advanced, 10 00:00:43.250 --> 00:00:47.140 allowing us to do cataract surgery usually in ten to 15 minutes. 11 00:00:47.170 --> 00:00:50.020 No sutures are required, 12 00:00:50.050 --> 00:00:53.700 and we can use premium or advanced intraocular lenses that allow you 13 00:00:53.730 --> 00:00:59.140 to eliminate the need for glasses for distance or near. 14 00:00:59.170 --> 00:00:59.940 In addition, 15 00:00:59.970 --> 00:01:06.100 we can often perform adjunctive procedures for other conditions, such as glaucoma. 16 00:01:06.130 --> 00:01:08.210 If anyone has questions about cataract or 17 00:01:08.240 --> 00:01:12.240 cataract surgery, please call our office and schedule an appointment. 18 00:01:18.320 --> 00:01:18.600 You.
