By the year 2050, a projected 50 million Americans will develop cataracts. Although cataracts are among the most common age-related eye conditions, the problem can be treated successfully with custom cataract surgery. At Beverly Hills Institute of Ophthalmology, our surgeons perform cataract removal, and premium intraocular lens implant procedures to preserve vision and restore your quality of life.

What are cataracts?

Cataracts are cloudy areas in the lenses of the eye. They usually develop in middle age and tend to grow larger and more opaque over time. If you have cataracts and do not receive treatment, it will endanger the health of your eyes and can lead to blindness. The good news is our cataract surgeon can remove your cataracts and replace them with a synthetic lens to restore clear, sharp vision.

Who is a candidate for cataract surgery in Beverly Hills?

You may be a candidate for cataract surgery if you have cataracts that have begun to affect your quality of life. In the early stages, when cataracts affect smaller areas of the lens, they may not significantly affect your vision.

When they develop to the point that they interfere with your ability to read, drive at night, or perform normal daily activities, it is time to consider undergoing cataract surgery.

What can I expect with cataract removal surgery?

During cataract removal, our eye surgeon uses local anesthesia to ensure that you are comfortable during the procedure. Next, the doctor precisely fragments the lens utilizing a femtosecond laser. Your surgeon then removes the emulsified lens material through a microscopic incision and replaces it with an intraocular lens (IOL).

What is recovery like after cataract surgery?

You will need to arrange another person to drive you home after your surgery. Recovery is usually quick after cataract surgery. You can expect to experience some soreness and discomfort, which should subside within a few days in many cases. It is essential to follow all post-operative care instructions and apply all eye drops as directed.

FAQ

What are the symptoms of cataracts?

Many people over the age of 50 have cataracts. If cloudiness affects only a small portion of the lens, you may not be aware that the condition is developing. As they grow larger, they can cloud more of the lens and distort more of the light, affecting clear vision. Signs and symptoms of cataracts may include:

  • Blurry, clouded, or dim vision
  • Increasing night vision difficulties
  • Need for brighter light for reading and other close-up activities
  • Sensitivity to light and glare
  • Fading or yellowing of colors
  • Double vision in one eye
  • Seeing halos around lights

What are IOLs?

IOLs are intraocular lenses. They replace your natural lens with a prosthetic that becomes a permanent part of your eye. The IOLs can be customized with a prescription for clear vision. There are several kinds of IOLs, including:

  • Monofocal lenses: This type of lens corrects either nearsightedness or farsightedness. If your surgery involves placing monofocal lenses to correct your distance vision, you will likely still need to wear reading glasses to read, work on a computer, or other up-close tasks.
  • Multifocal lenses: Multifocal lenses correct both nearsightedness and farsightedness. Most patients who get multifocal lenses achieve spectacle independence and are free from glasses. We offer all of the latest multifocal lenses.
  • Astigmatism lenses: Toric lenses are made specifically to treat astigmatism. With a toric lens in place, you will no longer rely on glasses or contact lenses to see clearly off into the distance.

Our Beverly Hills ophthalmologist will discuss the merits and potential drawbacks of each type of IOL with you in advance of your cataract surgery. If cataracts are stealing your vision, you can rely on the expert cataract surgeons at Beverly Hills Institute of Ophthalmology for cataract removal and premium IOLs.
