Lens implants are the ideal treatment for addressing the effects of cataracts, the eye disease marked by protein deposits on the outside of your natural eye lenses. Here at Katz Eye Center, we are pleased to make this advanced surgery available to you, our valued patient.
Cataracts is a progressive disease, which means that it gets worse over time. Initially, you may not even be aware that you have it. Eventually, though, the protein deposits grow in size and quantity, and your vision will become blurry and cloudy. The first line of treatment for the condition is a prescription for corrective eyewear that is designed to counteract the impact of cataracts and allow you to experience the best vision possible. For most people, this will be sufficient for a period of time that can range from years to decades, over which there will typically be adjustments to the prescription to account for the disease becoming advanced. Our eye lens implants in Williamsbridge are the solution when cataracts has reached the point where glasses or contacts are no longer effective. Your natural eye lenses are removed surgically, and during the same procedure you will have our eye lens implants in Williamsbridge put in to replace them. There are two types: monofocal and multi-focal. With monofocal ones, you will have improved distance vision, but may need glasses for reading. Multi-focal implants improve both distance and near vision. There are even toric implants for astigmatism. Our eye surgeon will discuss the options with you so that you get the ones most applicable to your needs.
Our eye lens implants in Williamsbridge give you back your freedom and your independence; the things that cataracts took away by reducing your vision to a a level that is subpar. If you’re excited about the possibilities, contact our office right now and let us schedule you to come in for a consultation and examination.
