Cataract Surgery Can Change Your Life
At Athwal Eye Associates, we understand that each patient brings a unique set of symptoms, challenges and potential solutions. For those suffering from cataracts, we often recommend cataract surgery and our advanced laser cataract surgery. Our surgical coordinator, Pamela Lynch, has years of experience with lens implants, insurance programs and available financing. Along with the rest of our team, Pamela will help you customize a cataract treatment program that fits your lifestyle.
How Do Cataracts Happen?
A cataract is a clouding or discoloring of the eye’s natural lens. As light enters the eye through the damaged lens, vision can appear blurred or hazy. Cataracts can cause a severe decrease in vision, but that vision is restored once the cataract is removed. Since cataracts can be easily diagnosed, many patients are able to seek treatment and avoid permanent vision loss.
What Happens in Cataract Surgery?
During cataract surgery, the clouded lens is replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL). Athwal Eye Associates offers laser-assisted cataract and astigmatism correction surgery using state-of-the-art, 3D imaging technology.
Is Cataract Surgery Safe?
Cataract surgery is one of the most common procedures conducted. Each year, more than 3 million Americans and 20 million people worldwide undergo surgery to remove cataracts. These surgeries are among the safest in modern medicine, and allow millions of patients to regain a higher quality of life thanks to clearer vision.
The doctors at Athwal Eye Associates have performed a combined 25,000-plus cataract and laser surgeries over the course of their careers. All of our doctors and staff keep up on the latest developments and technologies, and our eye surgery center is one of the only facilities in the Toms River area with the Catalys Laser System for laser-assisted cataract treatment.
