Your eye surgeon knows which care provides the best treatment for cataracts near Laguna Hills

Cataracts are clouded lenses that occur, for the most part, sometimes after the age of forty. More than half of the elderly have cataracts or have had cataract surgery. At the time, there is no “cure” for this troublesome eye condition away from the eye surgeon. There are no topical medications like eye drops that stop the damage caused by oxidation. The only way in which to get rid of cloudiness and poor vision is to remove the lens on which the cataract exists.

Dr. George Salib of Orange County Eye Institute provides outstanding care for cataracts in his Laguna Hills facility. In consultation with Dr. Salib, patients can determine the extent of damage to their lens as well as treatment options for lens replacement for crisp, clear vision.

When should cataracts be treated?

Some may think that a cataract is a problem that requires immediate treatment with surgery. The fact is, however, that many people live with cataracts without having to stop doing the things they love. Blurred vision may not occur in every case and, other than to restore vision, there is no other need to remove a cataract.

Cataracts should be removed when vision becomes blurred and cannot be easily corrected with prescription eyewear. If it is difficult to drive at night due to glare or light sensitivity, or reading signs is a challenge, surgery should be considered. If cataracts have caused one to stop engaging in hobbies like crocheting or playing board or computer games, it only makes sense to remove cataracts as a way to restore quality of life.

Personalized care for an optimal outcome

There is no saying exactly when every cataract should be removed. Each case is different and should be treated with personalized care. The changes on the cataract-affected lens occur over time, just how quickly will vary from person to person. The more advanced a cataract becomes, the more challenging it can be to remove due to the stiffness of the lens. Thanks to modern laser technology, the treatment of cataracts can be tailored to the various characteristics of the patient’s eye as well as the cataract itself.

Ultimately, the decision about when to remove a cataract comes down to the patient’s preferences. At Orange County Eye Institute, what we do is determine the extent of damage and offer suggestions on treatment options when necessary. An informed decision is a confident decision.
