Cataract Surgery Co-management in Colorado Springs

eye exam black forest coFull pre-op and post-op surgery care for cataracts Cataracts are a common age-related eye disorder. In fact, statistics estimate that over half of the population in America over age 80 have experienced cataracts or cataract surgery! As you get older, so does the lens structure in your eyes. Sometimes the crystalline fibers of your eye’s lens change and lead to the formation of a cataract, which is a clouding of the lens. Clear images are thereby preventing from appearing on your retina, and blurred vision results.

At Executive Park Eye Care, we’ll examine the health of your eyes thoroughly to inspect for signs of cataract formation. If we detect a cataract during your comprehensive eye exam in Colorado Springs, we’ll refer you immediately to a qualified, respected surgeon. At present, surgery is the only certain cure to treat cataracts, and we’re experienced and competent at handling all of your pre- and post-operative care.

The Basics of Cataract Surgery

During this ophthalmologic surgery, the opaque, crystalline natural lens of your eye will be removed and replaced with a transparent synthetic lens. This artificial intraocular lens will be implanted by your surgeon in an outpatient setting, using local anesthesia. Minimal discomfort is caused and the success rate is very high, with vision restored in over 90% of cataract operations. Additionally, the complication rate from this procedure is also very low. As a minimally invasive operation with a quick recovery, cataract surgery is widespread and popular around the globe.
