3 Things to Expect From Cataract Surgery

Cataract Surgery Westborough MA Finding out that you have cataracts isn’t exactly the thing you had been hoping to hear. And although cataracts can cause a variety of issues like blurred vision, double vision, light sensitivity, and more, we at Keamy Eye and Laser Center pride ourselves on helping patients get rid of their cataracts so they can live a clear, full, and healthy life. To help you better understand cataract surgery, let’s take a closer look at three things you can expect from this procedure, but first, what is cataract surgery?

What Is Cataract Surgery?

The goal of cataract surgery is to remove the cloudy lens (the cataract) from the patient’s eye and replace it with an intraocular lens which will help to restore your vision. With our laser assisted Catalys system, we take traditional cataract surgery one step further by using laser precision. Let’s take a closer look at things you can expect from surgery.

Unique Precision

All cataract surgeries are created equal, right? Lucky for you, that’s simply not the case. As previously mentioned, at our office we use the Catalys system from OptiMedica because it provides our doctors and patients with the highest precision available for this procedure— reducing risks and complications and risks in the process.

You May Have Blurred Vision Afterward

One thing that shocks many patients after surgery is that they experience blurred vision right afterward— don’t be alarmed. Although the goal of cataract surgery is to restore your eyesight and get rid of this blurred vision, it takes your eyes a little bit of time to adjust to your new lens— which is 100% normal. After a few days all the way up to a week, the blurriness should subside, and you should be able to see clearly.

You’ll Have to Use Eye Drops

For at least the first week following your surgery, you will have to use prescription eye drops a few times a day. These eye drops will not only help coat your eyes so they don’t dry out but they will also help to fight off infection.

If you have cataracts, laser surgery may be a good option for you. Want to learn more about laser cataract surgery? Schedule your consultation at our Westborough office today and call 508.836.USEE.HOME.
