Cloudy vision, dull colors, yellowed images, glare, poor night vision, frequent glasses prescription changes and rarely double vision are all symptoms of cataracts. Cataracts are a “clouding” or opacification of the eye’s natural lens.
The lens, located behind the iris (the colored part of the eye) acts much like the lens of a camera. The lens focuses light and images onto the retina which, acting like film in an old-fashioned camera, transmits images to your brain allowing you to see. When the lens becomes clouded over time, images may appear blurred and you may experience difficulty seeing at night or performing routine tasks. Eyeglasses or contact lenses can be utilized to correct visual problems related to early cataract development but when the cataract becomes more significant and decreased vision is affecting your quality of life, cataract surgery may become a consideration. There is no way to prevent or halt the progression of cataracts but fortunately cataract surgery is one of the safest and most effective surgeries performed today, restoring clear vision to millions.
David R. Pernelli, MD, performs his QuickVision Advanced Cataract Surgery Technique: a small incision, no stitch, minimally invasive procedure to remove the cloudy eye lens and replace it with a traditional or Lifestyle artificial Intraocular Lens providing clearer vision and a quicker return to daily activities.
