state-of-the-art technology, your doctor can safely
remove cataracts and allow patients to enjoy
better vision and resume the quality of life they
enjoyed before cataracts developed.
Should you consider cataract surgery? To decide whether
or not cataract surgery is right for you, a complete and
thorough eye examination is necessary. There are several
indications for cataract surgery, but rarely will a
cataract need to be removed immediately or as an
emergency. Because the procedure is elective, most
cataract surgery can be scheduled at your convenience.
After consultation with your
doctor, you may decide that you wish to have cataract surgery.
Before you make this decision, we will inform you about the health
of your eyes, any risks and potential complications of surgery, and the
alternatives, as well as discuss the benefits for you.
You also need to know what you can reasonably expect for visual
improvement following the procedure. You will be fully informed
about the surgery and its attendant risks and benefits. Only then
can you make an informed decision to proceed.
