There are two methods used in cataracts eye care. In the early stages of the condition, eyeglasses or contact lenses are typically effective in addressing the effects of cataracts. Later, if and when corrective lenses have reached a point where they are no longer enough to get the job done, we at New York Cornea Consultants can perform cataract surgery. Either way, when it comes to Fresh Meadows eye disease, you can count on us to not only diagnose you, but to have the solutions that produce the desired results.
Cataracts, as with most common eye diseases, form and progress without any obvious symptoms early on. The condition is caused by a buildup of proteins that attaches to the surface of your eye lenses, leading to blurry or cloudy vision. The earlier it is detected, the more effective a prescription for glasses or contacts will be in addressing the problem. When your Fresh Meadows eye disease is no longer able to be affected positively that way, though, the answer is a procedure that is safe and gives you back a level of eyesight that you probably never thought you could have again. The way it works is that our eye surgeon removes your eye lenses, since there is no way to separate the cataracts from them. The cloudiness and blurriness will then be a thing of the past. However, you will need something to replace your lenses for the purpose of focusing. Multi-focal intraocular lens implants (IOLs) are the answer. You will see with sharpness and clarity at all distances, free of the obstacles that cataracts had one put in the way of your optimal vision.
Cataracts is just one Fresh Meadows eye disease that we’re pleased to treat here. You can depend on us as your experts in cataracts eye care. Why not call and schedule a consultation?
