Currently, there is no medical treatment to reverse or prevent developing cataracts.
Cataracts can only be removed surgically. We use lasers or ultrasound to emulsify the cataract into small pieces, which we then vacuum from the eye.
Cataract surgery at Memorial Eye Institute is for those who:
- Have been diagnosed with cataracts
- Have vision problems that interfere with their daily activities
- Want better vision to improve their quality of life
After a thorough eye exam, you and your doctor will determine if cataract surgery is an option for you. They will give you additional information about the procedure that will allow you to make an informed decision about whether to proceed.
Fortunately, cataract surgery is one of the safest and most common procedures performed in the United States and worldwide, with over 3 million performed annually in this country alone.
The decision to have cataract surgery is an important one that only you can make. If you’d like to restore your vision and eliminate your need for glasses, book your free appointment using our online scheduler, or give us a call on (717) 996-3016.
