Here at Tutela Eye Center, we make cataracts surgery, already a safe and effective procedure, even more so. With a no-stitch procedure that utilizes state-of-the-art technology to remove your cataracts in less than a half hour and replace them with lens implants, you can have freedom from the vision impediment that is caused by this common eye disease.
Cataracts is a progressive condition. In the beginning, you may not even realize that you have it as deposits of protein form on the outer surface of your eye lenses. Eventually, blurry or cloudy vision will be noticeable. Over time, the deposits grow in both size and quantity, until such time that the corrective eyewear prescribed for you, and updated as needed, are no longer sufficient to give you the level of vision you want. It is then that you should take advantage of this advanced procedure at our eye surgery office in West Orange. It is not possible to remove the cataracts from your lenses, and so the lenses themselves have to be taken out. Once that happens, there is no further obstacle in the way of your vision, but you will need a replacement so that you can see with sharpness and clarity. Our eye surgery office in West Orange uses monofocal intraocular lens implants, or IOLs. They restore your distance vision. You will still require reading glasses so that you can enjoy better vision up close. Be assured that the procedure is done under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. There is no hospital stay, and you won’t have to be put under during the surgery.
