Eye Surgery for Woodbridge, VA
Cataract surgery is the most common surgical procedure in the United States, with over 1.5 million patients having their cataracts removed each year. Cataract surgery is a very safe and effective surgery with a very high success rate. Most patients can see very clearly at distance soon after surgery. Now you even have the option to upgrade your cataract surgery by choosing premium intraocular lenses (IOLs). These new lenses can reduce or even eliminate your dependency on glasses or contact lenses.
Before your cataract surgery your eye must be properly cleaned and dilated. A topical anesthetic is used before the small incision is made.
An ultrasonic device will be inserted into the small incision to pulverize the hard yellow proteins that form the cataract, and remove them from the eye.
A folded intraocular lens will be inserted through the original incision. This lens will replace your natural lens and stay in place inside your eye, providing you with clear vision after the procedure.
You will not be able to feel or sense the implanted lens in any way. The small incision will then self-seal itself without the need for stitches.
Our surgeon performs suture-less cataract surgery, which promotes faster healing and allows you to return to your normal activities within 48 hours of your surgery. If you are interested in cataract surgery click here to schedule your consultation today.
