A cataract can be the reason sharp images have become blurred, and seeing things at night has become more difficult. It also may be why the eyeglasses or contacts that used to help you read — or do any everyday, simple tasks — don’t seem to be helping any longer.
Dr. Slusher removes cataracts using a small incision technique called phacoemulsification. This is an outpatient procedure and typically, patients are able to drive and return to work rapidly. During this procedure, a small incision is made and the cataract, or cloudy lens, is removed. A new, artificial lens is then implanted in the eye.
Slusher Eye Center uses modern techniques for testing and removing cataracts. We have implemented the use of the innovative IOL Master in our office. This cutting edge technology helps determine the power of the artificial lens to be implanted and has been a successful addition to modern cataract surgery.
A thorough examination by Dr. Slusher can detect the presence and extent of a cataract and whether cataract surgery is right for you. Please contact our office if you are experiencing some of the symptoms described above.
