Cataracts eye care in Kaien Island

Here at Omni Eye and Vision, we’re committed to not only correcting refractive conditions like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, but also to the prompt diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases. Our cataracts eye care is designed to keep you experiencing optimal vision for as long as possible.

What are Kaien Island cataracts exactly? It’s a condition where deposits of protein form on the outer part of the lenses inside your eyes. When the disease first forms, it is unlikely that you’ll have any idea. But cataracts are progressive, and they will continue to grow in both size and quantity. The rate of growth varies from person to person, but at some point you will need to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses to address the deficiency in your vision. Blurriness and cloudiness are common. Our eye doctor will assess the state of your Kaien Island cataracts and provide the appropriate prescription. It is not uncommon to require changes to that prescription as your vision grows worse. For many people, there will come a time when what corrective eyewear can provide has gone as far as it can. It’s then that you should consider the benefits of cataract surgery. It’s a safe and effective option, in which an eye surgeon removes your natural eye lenses and then replaces them with prosthetic lenses that are called intraocular lens implants, or simply IOLs. These implants can be either monofocal or multi-focal, depending on your needs. You’ll be able to see with sharpness and clarity at all distances with them, and you’ll enjoy the restored independence that cataracts can steal from you.
