Cataract Surgery

Rediscover Clear Vision with Cataract Surgery at Harmon Ophthalmology, P.C.

What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts are a common eye condition where the natural lens becomes cloudy, leading to blurred vision and, if untreated, potential blindness. While often associated with aging, cataracts can also result from injury, certain medications, or diseases such as diabetes. Symptoms of cataracts include:

  • Cloudy or blurry vision
  • Difficulty seeing at night
  • Sensitivity to light and glare
  • Fading or yellowing of colors
  • Double vision in one eye

Cataract Surgery: A Path to Clearer Vision

Cataract surgery is a highly effective and safe procedure to restore clear vision. This common surgery involves removing the clouded lens and replacing it with a clear artificial lens known as an intraocular lens (IOL).

The Journey to Clear Vision

Initial Consultation:

  • During your initial appointment, our ophthalmologist will conduct a comprehensive eye exam to assess the severity of your cataracts and determine if surgery is necessary.
  • Once surgery is deemed the best course of action, the procedure and its benefits will be discussed in detail.

Pre-Surgical Evaluation:

  • Our surgical team will take precise measurements of your eye to ensure the proper lens implant selection and calculate the lens power needed for optimal vision correction.
  • Additional tests may be performed to assess your overall eye health and identify any potential risks for surgery.
  • After the pre-operative assessment, you’ll schedule the surgery date and review all preoperative and postoperative instructions.

Day of Surgery:

  • On the day of surgery, you’ll arrive at our surgical center or hospital at the designated time.
  • The surgical team will prep you for the procedure, which involves dilating your pupil and administering anesthesia to ensure your comfort.
  • The actual surgery typically takes less than 30 minutes per eye, where the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an artificial one.
  • Post-surgery, you’ll spend some time in a recovery area where our medical team will monitor your vitals before sending you home.

Post-Surgery Care:

  • After surgery, you’ll use prescribed eye drops to prevent infection and reduce inflammation.
  • Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your healing process.
  • Most people can resume normal activities within a week, though it’s recommended to avoid strenuous activities, refrain from driving for 7 days, and protect your eye from potential injury during recovery.
