Cataract Surgery

Cataract Surgery and Treatment

Many patients suffer from cataracts. A cataract occurs when the lens in the eye becomes cloudy. Most cataracts are related to aging of the eye, but some are associated with medications and underlying illnesses. Symptoms of cataract include blurred vision, glare, and diminished color sensitivity. If you’ve been experiencing any of these issues, it’s important to make an appointment with our eye clinic in Arlington Heights and Mount Prospect to determine if you are a good candidate for laser cataract surgery. We want to make sure you can see as clearly as possible.

Arlington Eye Physicians uses the latest technology lenses to improve your vision after cataract surgery. To promote spectacle independence, we offer toric lenses to correct astigmatism, and multifocal lenses to enable vision for both reading and distance. Each patient is carefully evaluated to determine the proper lens style to fit his or her needs.

We Offer Quality Care

We understand the idea of getting cataract removal surgery can be anxiety-inducing, causing you to worry about the outcome of the laser removal surgery and feel nervous about what will happen afterward. This is why we sit down with you to go over what will happen before you undergo cataract removal surgery. We understand how frustrating it can be to experience blurred vision on a regular basis and want you to feel comfortable with your choice to take advantage of this treatment option. We can help you see clearer and feel better about what you will go through before, during and after the procedure.

YAG Capsulotomy

Some patients develop scar tissue surrounding the lens implant after cataract surgery leading to blurred vision and glare. An instrument called a YAG laser can be used to remove the scar tissue and improve vision. While we do everything we can to ensure a successful laser cataract surgery, there can still be complications for a number of reasons. The good news is we are fully equipped to help you overcome any challenges you may face once your surgery is complete. If you experience any problems after cataract removal surgery, you can make an appointment at our Mount Prospect or Arlington Heights clinic to get an evaluation. Whether a YAG capsulotomy is the right choice or another treatment option is better, we can help you make the smart choice for your unique situation.
