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, which results in poor vision. Symptoms and Treatment Options Some of the most common symptoms of cataracts are:
Blurred or double vision
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 Dr. Dong 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 a variety of new technology, intraocular lenses, some of which will give a patient 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 typically will wear reading glasses when reading and may require a light prescription for distance activities.
