Cataract Center | Lexington, KY

Cataracts affect over 22 million Americans (in most cases aged 40 and above) and are present in 90% of Americans aged 65 and older. This eye disease is the leading cause of visual loss in those who are over 55. At our cataract center, we see a lot of patients afflicted with this disease.

 

If you have been diagnosed with cataracts, surgery is typically performed to remove the clouded natural crystalline lens containing the cataract and replace it with a clear acrylic lens known as an intraocular lens. You can have it done at a cataract center in Lexington, KY that you trust.

 

The head physician in our cataract center is highly skilled in performing surgeries. During this procedure, your clouded or hard natural crystalline lens is removed and replaced with a new artificial lens. You can expect the procedure to take less than 30 minutes and in most instances, patients notice an improvement in their vision immediately after the procedure. For some, there may be an adjustment period where they experience halos and glare whenever they’re around the light. In most cases, this goes away over time.

 

When having cataract surgery, only one eye is treated at a time. You have to book another surgery at a cataract center for a later time to take care of the other eye. Since cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure, you don’t have to plan for an overnight stay. Most people are able to resume their normal activities the day after their procedure.

Options for Intraocular Lenses:

Monofocal Intraocular Lens: This is used to restore vision for one area of focus—usually distance. Reading glasses may still be needed.

 

Multifocal Intraocular Lens: This is used to provide high-quality vision at multiple distances, with enhanced vision at a distinct distance customized to suit the patient’s lifestyle. These lenses may increase freedom from glasses.

 

Symfony Intraocular Lens: This is used to provide high-quality continuous vision, both from a near point and a far distance. It may reduce the overall need to wear glasses.

 

Cataracts are highly treatable, and through advances in both cataract surgery and lens implants, more people are experiencing the complete restoration of their vision than ever before.
