What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts are a common eye condition, often associated with aging, that causes the lens of the eye to become cloudy. This cloudiness gradually reduces the clarity of vision, leading to symptoms like blurred vision, difficulty seeing in dim light, and increased sensitivity to glare. Over time, cataracts can impact daily activities like reading, driving, and recognizing faces. Cataract surgery involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with a clear artificial lens.

What Is Cataract Surgery?

Cataract surgery is the removal of your cloudy, natural lens and the implantation of a clear, artificial lens. This intraocular lens (IOL) can be customized to your visual goals and needs.

What Causes Cataracts?

Cataracts develop when proteins in the lens of the eye clump together, causing cloudiness and obscuring vision. While aging is the primary cause, other factors can also contribute to their formation, including:

  • Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun
  • Smoking
  • Certain medical conditions like diabetes
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Eye injuries,
  • Long-term use of corticosteroid medications
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Environmental factors like air pollution and radiation exposure

Types of Surgery

Refractive Cataract Surgery

Refractive Cataract Surgery is a treatment option that goes above and beyond regular cataract surgery. The surgeons at Advanced Vision Care are leading providers in ensuring the best, customized outcome for you. We are dedicated to helping you reach your visual goals and our Refractive Cataract Surgery packages allow patients to experience less dependency on glasses and customize their vision to their visual goals after cataract surgery in Los Angeles.

During your initial consultation, your surgeon will conduct an in-depth examination to determine the exact course of treatment, including which type of lens implant will best suit you. With the advancement of technology, the type of lens used in this procedure is designed to last a lifetime so there is no need to repeat this procedure once it has been done.

Nearsightedness, farsightedness, and even astigmatism can all be corrected with refractive cataract surgery. This improved level of care combines the benefits of standard cataract surgery and the latest scientific innovations to help you attain the best vision possible. At Advanced Vision Care, a personalized course of treatment will be drawn up for you, taking into account your lifestyle habits and requirements, all in an effort to select the very best plan of action to help eliminate not only the symptoms of cataracts but also to assist you in attaining your visual goals after surgery.

Complex Cataract Surgery

There are certain conditions that make some people more complex than traditional cataract surgery. Previous injuries or trauma to the eyes, certain medications, corneal conditions, and pre-existing eye conditions, among others, can all lead to special considerations needed at the time of cataract surgery.

Patients commonly referred to our center by other surgeons across the nation arrive with complex conditions such as high corneal astigmatism, floppy iris syndrome, pseudoexfoliation, zonulopathy and traumatic cataracts, advanced dense cataracts, and other conditions, that require special attention at the time of cataract surgery.

The surgeons at Advanced Vision Care are renowned for not only traditional, laser, or refractive cataract surgery in Los Angeles, but have both expertise and long-term experience in dealing with complex cataract cases.

With advanced training, experience, and equipment, our facility is a haven for those suffering from unique factors allowing us to provide more complex cataract treatment options.

Traditional vs. Laser: What Is the Difference?

Traditional vs. Laser Cataract Surgery

Traditional Cataract Surgery creates incisions using a surgical blade and using phacoemulsification and ultrasound technology, breaks up the old, cloudy lens for extraction.

Laser Cataract Surgery utilizes the Femtosecond Laser to create machine-precise incisions and breaks the old, cloudy lens into ready-to-remove pieces for extraction.

SIMPLE RULES TO FOLLOW AFTER SURGERY

At Advanced Vision Care, we use new-age technology to assess your eye and identify the size, placement, and severity of cataracts. This ensures that the most precise laser surgical treatment is provided.

Right after your Beverly Hills Cataract Surgery, your eyes may be swollen and red. You may also experience minor tenderness, dryness, and pain. Your eyesight will be blurry for a few days but all these symptoms should disappear within a few days. It is advised that you arrange transportation ahead of time as you will be unable to drive.

Your eyes may be sensitive to light at this time. You will be asked to wear sunglasses or eye shields for a few days. Don’t look directly at the sun or rub your eyes after the surgery. Our doctors will prescribe medication to treat pain and inflammation and prevent infection. It is best to take your medication as prescribed. Contact us to schedule an appointment today.

Cataract Surgery FAQs

Have more questions or want to learn more about cataract surgery?

When should you get cataract surgery?

Cataracts can take years to develop and you’ll find out that you have cataracts when your vision begins to change. If you experience hazy vision, clouding in the eye, sensitivity to light and night vision problems, you should visit our Century City eye clinic immediately. Our Los Angeles site is one of the most reputed clinics for cataract surgery in Los Angeles and the Beverly Hills area. You can trust us for quality care.

How permanent is cataract surgery?

Cataract surgery is considered a permanent solution to cataracts. During the procedure, the clouded lens is replaced with a clear artificial lens, which typically remains in place for the rest of the patient’s life. The implanted lens is durable and stable, providing long-term clarity of vision. While rare complications or secondary cataracts may occur, the vast majority of patients experience lasting improvement in vision after surgery.

What is presbyopia and how can cataract surgery help?

Presbyopia is an age-related loss of flexibility in the eye’s lens. This makes it difficult to read close-up objects like smartphones and newspapers. Selecting the right implantable lens to fit your lifestyle may lessen the need for glasses. Your surgeon for your cataract surgery in Los Angeles, is well versed in all currently available specialty lenses, including Symfony, PanOptix, TECNIS Multifocal, ReSTOR, and toric lenses. Additionally, we are involved in pivotal trials for new presbyopia lenses coming to the market in the United States.

What is Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery?

The Femtosecond Laser (CATALYS and LenSx) is a treatment with a bladeless laser instrument that uses real-time precision measurements of the eye to correct astigmatism and minimize the amount of energy used during cataract surgery. In addition, laser energy is used to soften the cataract before removal.
