Cataract Surgery

As a cataract develops you may start to feel like you are looking through a foggy window and you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Difficulty reading and increased sensitivity to light and glare
  • Seeing halos, colors appear faded, poor night vision
  • Double vision

It is of paramount importance that if you are experiencing any of these symptoms to schedule a comprehensive eye examination with our office. Early diagnosis and management are essential to preserving vision.

Today, thanks to advances in care, removing cataracts to restore vision is a routine, safe, and effective surgical procedure. It involves removing the cloudy lens and then replacing it with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). In most cases, cataract surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia and light sedation.

With newer types of lens implants that are available today, lens replacement during cataract surgery can also help to reduce the need for glasses after surgery. Dr. Girgis can offer a variety of advanced technology IOLs to patients who would like to reduce their dependence on corrective eyewear.
