Significantly reduce contact lens difficulties with cataract surgery in Laguna Hills

Cataracts develop over time, in most cases, affecting older adults in a number of ways. Although there is no benefit to scheduling cataract surgery in the early stages of the condition, most people reach a point that their preference will be to remove a clouded lens. This may be due to contact lens difficulties, trouble seeing at night, or a variety of other problems. If you are considering cataract surgery, you can obtain the information you need from Laguna Hills ophthalmologist, Dr. George Salib.

Are cataracts an obstacle to your quality of life?

Some of the symptoms that may occur with cataracts include:

  • Light sensitivity
  • Frequent changes to your vision prescription
  • Blurring or cloudiness
  • Double vision, usually in one eye
  • Difficulty reading or performing tasks in dim light
  • Vision distortion

Symptoms alone are not sufficient to determine if cataracts have developed. An exam at Orange County Eye Institute will include dilation, which enables Dr. Salib to observe your natural lens. By assessing the condition of your natural lens and considering your symptoms, an accurate recommendation for care can be made.

The intraocular lens is a key to a brighter future

[img1]Cataract removal surgery involves more than the removal of the clouded natural lens. In order to restore optimal vision, it is necessary to replace the lens. We do this with the appropriate intraocular lens, or IOL. While many people do not mind wearing eyeglasses or contacts after cataract removal surgery, those who do can discuss their options for IOL placement. The ReSTOR® lens is one example of how an IOL can correct vision.

The ReSTOR® lens has been developed as a method of correcting presbyopia, another age-related condition that disrupts visual acuity. Clarity comes from the optimal distribution of light at all distances, facilitated by the apodized diffractive design of the replacement lens. In many cases, the IOL achieves the desired improvement and patients can perform activities they may have given up due to cataracts.

Orange County Eye Institute is the facility of choice for many patients in Laguna Hills, Laguna Beach, Lake Forest, and other communities in our area. Dr. George Salib is known for his extensive skill in the treatment of cataracts, as well as his commitment to patient care. We want you to know what your options are in addressing cataracts, and spend time with you to make sure all of your questions are answered.
