Cataracts

Cataracts are the leading cause of poor vision in adults. They occur when a chemical composition change occurs in the lens, causing it to become cloudy and results in poor vision. Some of the most common symptoms of cataracts are:

  • Blurred or double vision

  • Dull colors

  • A glare around lights and a feeling of film over the eyes

  • Frequent changing of glasses and difficulty driving or reading

Since cataracts cannot be treated with medication, the only treatment option is the surgical removal and replacement of the cloudy lens. At Georgia Center for Sight, Dr. Dong performs all cataract procedures using a no-needle, no-stitch, small, clear corneal incision technique. This allows him to provide minimal tissue disturbance and facilitate a faster recovery time. Cataracts surgery is covered by insurance companies if your vision is too blurred to enjoy your lifestyle. Dr. Dong will remove the aged lens and replace it with an intraocular lens. We can provide superior postoperative vision by using intraocular lenses, a variety of new technology that give most patients the ability to function without glasses for both distance and near vision. Dr. Dong also offers traditional cataract surgery, utilizing a lens to provide good distance vision. Patients will typically wear reading glasses and may require a light prescription for distance activities.

You don't have to live with cataracts

As you age, you will find your eyesight changing in many ways. For most of us, that simply means an onset of presbyopia (the aging of eyes that causes us to become more nearsighted). But thousands of others develop a more severe condition that requires cataract surgery. If cataracts are left untreated, they will eventually cause blindness. But fear not!  Modern ophthalmology has found treatment.
