If you have been experiencing clouded or blurred vision you may well be developing a cataract. A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens of the eye. The lens gradually thickens and becomes so clouded that light cannot reach the retina and be subsequently sent to the brain. Cataracts need to be treated as they will eventually cause blindness in most cases. When you are in need of an excellent cataracts care in Queens, you will want to visit us at New York Cornea Consultants.

Dr. Michael Ehrenhaus is our highly-trained ophthalmologist at New York Cornea Consultants. He is able to provide expert cataract treatment when you need a Queens cataracts doctor. Dr. Ehrenhaus is committed to providing compassionate and personalized eye care to the residents of Bayside. Many of his patients come to him due to vision problems caused by cataracts. When cataracts are diagnosed they are generally removed by cataract surgery. During cataract surgery our doctor will remove the cloudy lens and replace it with a new man made lens. This surgery is generally done using a small cut or incision.

Cataract surgery is generally performed using local anesthesia. A device that sends out an ultrasound vibration is inserted into the eye by our cataracts care in Queens, and the natural lens breaks into small pieces. The small pieces are then able to be removed by suction through the small cut in the eye. Often a laser is used to make the cut to help improve recovery from cataract surgery. A new lens is then inserted into the eye and placed into the appropriate position in the eye. This new lens is called an intraocular lens, or an IOL. Another name for this type of procedure is “intraocular lens implantation.” The lens is permanent and does not call for any type of care. Most people are able to see well at a distance without glasses after cataract surgery. This procedure is done as an outpatient, so there is no hospital stay. If you would like to meet with Dr. Ehrenhaus to discuss cataract surgery, contact our practice today. Dr. Ehrenhaus will be happy to meet with you and discuss how cataract surgery will be able to help restore your valued vision.

Here at New York Cornea Consultants, our Bayside cataract surgeon has helped many patients get their eyesight back to normal with our highly successful and effective surgeries. Cataracts are a common issue for patients, especially as they grow older in age. A cataract is when the lens of the eye becomes clouded over, giving the vision a foggy look. As cataracts become more advanced, you may find it difficult to read, drive, see at night, or even recognize faces. Though cataracts can be detrimental to your daily life, it is assuring to know that cataract surgery is a viable and highly effective treatment option.

The main goal of cataract surgery is to remove the thickened, cloudy lens, and replace with an artificial intraocular lens implant. One exciting new option that our Bayside cataract surgeon would love to discuss with you is the option for your intraocular lens implant to be bifocal or multifocal, so as to eliminate the need for eyeglasses or contact lens following your cataract surgery. With this option, cataract surgery goes beyond simply replacing your clouded lens, and makes your vision even better than it was before the cataract. As you can see, our Bayside cataract surgeon is always doing everything possible to make our services as effective and convenient for our patients. We truly care about your eye health and vision, and want to make sure that your vision is as clear and healthy as it can be with our help.
