As many people age, cataracts, or clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye, are an increasingly common problem.
Symptoms of cataracts include:
- blurred vision
- light sensitivity
- double vision in one eye
- poor night vision
- color distortion
Ohio Valley Eye Institute offers state-of-the-art premium cataract correction to help patients achieve freedom of clear vision.
Our Surgeons, led by Dr. David Malitz, use the latest technique in performing cataract surgery. Using only a topical anesthetic to numb the eye, the surgeon creates a small incision and uses high-energy sound waves to break the cataract into microscopic particles which are then removed from the eye. To compensate for the removal of the eye's natural lens, an intra-ocular lens (IOL) is implanted into the eye. After using this special small incision, the eye remains tightly sealed by the natural outward pressure within your eye and no stitches are usually required.
The cataract removal technique Ohio Valley Eye Institute uses is often preferred to traditional methods because patients are more comfortable during and after the procedure. Because this new technique uses eye drops to numb the eye, usually the need for an anesthetic shot, stitches, or a post-surgery patch is eliminated. Another advantage is that most patients notice a rapid visual improvement with this technique.
