What Are Cataracts?

A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens in the eye, which can cause blurry or dim vision, sensitivity to light, and difficulty seeing at night.

Truly a miracle of modern medicine, cataract surgery stands as one of the safest and most effective surgical procedures performed to restore clear eyesight all over the world. Why is cataract surgery so common? Because cataracts are a part of the normal aging process that affects everyone as we grow older. By the age of 65, more than half of Americans have been found to have a cataract.1

Symptoms of Cataracts

Cataracts are not preventable, but they are treatable. We know that the blurry vision caused by cataracts can be frustrating, and the good news is that cataract surgery has an extremely high success rate. If you are experiencing any of the following cataract symptoms, you may be a candidate for cataract surgery.2

Treatment for Cataracts

Cataract surgery is typically recommended when the cataract begins to significantly affect daily activities, such as driving or reading, and when the person’s quality of life is impacted by the vision loss.

What to Expect from Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure performed with local anesthetic. Using advanced precision instruments, your surgeon will remove the eye’s clouded lens and replace it with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL).

Preparing for Cataract Surgery

A consultation appointment with one of our experienced surgeons is the most important step before cataract surgery. We will answer any questions, examine your eyes, and recommend a treatment plan. We will also give you detailed pre-surgery instructions.

Recovery After Cataract Surgery

The recovery time can vary depending on the individual and the specific technique used during the surgery. However, most people are able to resume normal activities, such as driving and reading, within a few days to a week after the surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cataract Surgery in New Braunfels

Which IOL is right for me?

We offer a full selection of premium IOL options, including the revolutionary light-adjustable lens. Rest assured that our experts will help you choose an IOL that meets your needs and fits your lifestyle.

Is cataract surgery safe?

Cataract surgery is considered a safe and effective procedure, with a low risk of complications.3 However, as with any surgery, there is always a small risk of complications, such as infection, bleeding, or retinal detachment.

Be sure to talk to one of our doctors about not only the benefits of vision correction, but also any risks of vision correction that may pertain to your individual needs and circumstances.

Is cataract surgery painful?

Cataract surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the eye and surrounding area, so the procedure itself is not painful. Some people may experience mild discomfort or a scratchy sensation after the surgery, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

Will I need glasses after cataract surgery?

The need for glasses after cataract surgery depends on several factors, such as the type of IOL implanted and the person’s visual needs. Some people may still need glasses for distance or reading, while others may be able to see clearly without glasses for most activities. Your eye doctor can discuss your options and recommend the best course of action for you.

Can cataracts come back after surgery?

Cataracts cannot come back after they have been removed during surgery. However, some people may develop a secondary cataract, which is a clouding of the membrane that surrounds the IOL. This can be easily treated with a quick, painless laser procedure.
