Whenever you are experiencing any type of vision problems, including these, you will want to come to see us at New York Cornea Consultants. Our expert and highly trained ophthalmologist, Dr. Michael Ehrenhaus, will be able to provide you with treatment for your cataracts in Queens, which can include cataract laser surgery.
Sometimes when patients have cataracts in Queens they decide to continue having their lens prescription changed which will provide them with improved vision. However, generally when a patient has cataracts, the time does come when this will no longer be effective and the patient will need to have cataract surgery in order to see clearly once again. The good news is that cataract surgery is one of the safest and most effective cataract surgeries performed today. If you have cataracts in Queens, our eye doctor will be able to speak to you about which treatment is the best. It is impossible to determine which cataracts will go on to cause total blindness, however, most cataracts will develop to this point if they are left alone to progress. Cataract surgery is a very short surgery which is performed on an outpatient basis. The patient will generally not have any type of anesthesia except for drops which are placed in the eyes. The patient will remain comfortable during the entire procedure, and during recovery. During this surgery the clouded natural lens of the eye is removed through a tiny incision that is made with a laser. A new man-made lens is then inserted into the eye through this new incision. These new lenses will provide you with excellent distance vision, or may even be multifocal lenses which will provide you with excellent vision at several distances.
