Cataract Surgery Options

Cataracts are a cloudiness that forms in the normally clear lens of the eye, leading to decreased vision. Although cataracts are a leading cause of vision loss in people over the age of 40, cataract surgery options offer an easy solution to clear vision for the millions that suffer from the condition. Depending on your pre-operative vision and desired result, Dr. Blanton in Rancho Cucamonga may choose to remove your cloudy lens and replace it with a clear lens implant called an intraocular lens, IOL. This has been done for routine cataract surgery for years. There are several IOL options that remedy different types of vision problems. Dr. Blanton can help you decide which is right for you.

There are numerous cataract surgery options. Below are two categories to consider:

Refractive Cataract Surgery: There are several options for refractive cataract surgery. This category includes surgeries that use special IOL lenses designed to correct myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. The goal is to correct the cloudiness from the cataract as well as improve nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, reducing the need for distance and near vision glasses.

Standard Cataract Surgery: Cataract surgery with a basic, standard, IOL. This type of cataract surgery corrects the cloudy lens but does not provide additional vision correction. With this type of cataract surgery, most patients will see better than before the surgery, but unlike other lens options, will likely require glasses at all distances for the best vision.
