Cataracts eye care in Philadelphia

Philadelphia cataracts

It is very common for people to develop cataracts after the age of 60. However, a person can develop cataracts at any age. In fact, some infants are even born with cataracts. If you are looking for a vision practice where you will receive excellent cataract eye care, you will want to come to see us at IC Laser Eye Care, where you will receive excellent treatment for your Philadelphia cataracts.

When you come to our vision practice for Philadelphia cataracts eye care, you will be seen by one of our top-notch ophthalmologists, just one of whom is Dr. Iftekhar Chaudhry, our Director and Chief Surgeon. Our eye doctor will be able to determine whether or not you have cataracts during a comprehensive eye exam. A cataract can develop in one or both eyes, however both eyes are often affected. When a patient first develops a cataract, it may be able to be treated with a new lens prescription, and improved lighting conditions, at home. However, most cataracts will progress to the point where surgery is needed, and a patient will even lose their vision if the cataracts are not treated. The good news is that today cataract surgery is one of the safest and most commonly-performed eye surgeries. Patients are able to receive cataract surgery while they remain perfectly comfortable due to our use of local anesthesia. Cataract surgery takes a small amount of time, only several minutes for each eye; usually one eye is operated on at a time. During the laser cataract surgery, the damaged natural lens of the eye is removed through a tiny incision in the eye, and a new intraocular lens is inserted through the same incision. Intraocular lenses now come in different types, and patients can even receive lenses which provide them with vision correction at varying distances, so they no longer need to wear eyeglasses or readers.
