Our Kissimmee Eye Doctor Can Help You See Better with Cataracts Surgery
The cataract surgery techniques used today are among the safest in the world. More than three million of these procedures are performed each year in the United States alone. There are very few complications ever reported from these procedures, and most of them result in an excellent outcome with vastly improved vision. The same is true of cataract removal surgery by your Kissimmee eye doctor.
The basic type of cataract surgery involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial one. This is called an intraocular lens implant, and it is safe, comfortable, and highly effective at restoring your clear vision. Sometimes, you even have less of a need of glasses or contacts after cataract surgery. The entire procedure could take as little as fifteen minutes to do, though you will be in recovery for about a month afterward. This will mean wearing sunglasses outside, taking special antibiotic eye drops, and other forms of eye care until your eye is fully healed. After that, you can resume your normal eye care routine.
Cataract surgery is done in an outpatient facility, so you go home the same day. Just be sure to bring someone to drive you.
