Cataract Laser Treatment

What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts are clumps of protein that build up in the natural lenses of eyes, obscuring vision. The main symptom associated with cataracts is blurry vision. Having cataracts is like looking out of a window that hasn't been cleaned in a long time. When cataracts start interfering with your everyday life, the only real cure for the condition is eye surgery. After your cataract surgery, you’ll need the help of a trained optometrist to monitor your recovery. 

What About after Surgery?

Typically, any cloudiness will clear up in 24 hours and you'll be able to see clearly again. You should be able to resume your regular activities fairly soon after that. The only thing you might have to do is put antibiotic eye drops in your eyes for about a week to prevent infection.

Are There Risks Associated with Cataract Surgery?

Nothing in life is 100% risk free, but there are very few side effects to having a YAG Laser capsulotomy to remove your cataracts. One such risk is that you might have a detached retina, but that happens in less than 3% of cases. Also, there is a very low risk of cystoid macular edema (CME) happening. The vast majority of people have this surgery done with no problems.

This is a safe procedure and we are skilled at performing it. You will love how well you see after it.

At Family Eye Clinic, we are ready to help the people of Sherwood, Little Rock, or North Little Rock, manage their eye health after undergoing cataract surgery. Contact us today by calling (501) 835-7800 to make an appointment with our eye doctor.
