All About Cataracts
Savannah cataract eye surgery
Remove blurry vision for a clearer view of the world
Cataracts affect millions of Americans and are an extremely common cause of vision loss. The ability to see can be crucial to living independently and enjoying all life has to offer. If you’re suffering from vision problems due to cataracts, Landa & Landa Eye Care Specialists can help. Cataract surgery is performed at our in-house ambulatory surgery center, giving patients state-of-the-art-care with a personalized touch.
What are cataracts?
Cataracts are a clouding of the eye’s internal lens that is both progressive and painless. The condition is a result of a protein buildup in the lens of the eye, which prevents light from easily passing through. This makes it hard to see clearly. As the disease progresses, cataracts can eventually cause blindness.
Cataracts typically develop slowly and don’t cause many symptoms until they begin to distinctly block light.
When cataract symptoms do appear, they may include:
- Blurry or clouded vision
- Abrupt changes in corrective lens prescription
- Changes in the appearance of eye color
- Problems with glare while driving at night or during the day
- Double vision (similar to a superimposed image) in the affected eye
While cataracts are most commonly related to aging, they can occur in younger people as well.
Cataract surgery from our Savannah eye surgeons
With modern medical advancements, you no longer have to live with cataracts. Drs. Landa & Landa offer high-tech cataract surgery in a state-of-the-art facility from our experienced ophthalmologist and fellowship trained surgeon. At Landa & Landa Eye Care Specialists of Savannah, patients experience a friendly staff and doctors who care about their overall well-being, in addition to optimum eye health.
Cataract surgery is a highly successful, quick, outpatient procedure. Patients are given a mild sedative to help them relax and an anesthetic solution is used on the eye. The goal of cataract surgery is to remove the clouded lens and replace it with an artificial one. The surgery is painless. While patients are required to arrange for a ride home after the procedure, they will be feeling great in no time. Most of our patients report that they are back to normal after one day of recuperation.
