Don’t Let Cataracts Cloud Your Vision

Over 50% of people aged 65 and older have a cataract in one or both eyes. As the cataract progresses, vision deteriorates, leading to a decreased quality of life. Fortunately, cataract surgery can easily treat this condition.

What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts are cloudy patches that develop on the lens of your eye. Cataracts can cause blurred or double vision, may increase light sensitivity and interfere with driving, especially at night. Without cataract surgery, millions of people around the world would be unable to see clearly.

The most common symptoms include:
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Trouble seeing at night
  • Sensitivity to glare
  • Colored halos around lights
  • Colors appearing more faded
  • Requiring brighter light for reading

Everyone is amazing. It was super easy to get an appointment and the lady that scheduled us was nice... and efficient. The secretary, when we went in, was super nice as well very informative also. The tech (not sure her official title, but the lady that ran all the machines) was amazing! My son is 6 and she explained everything so well so that he would understand what to do. The Dr also has a talent for getting young children to understand him. He was also extremely nice and patient and took time to explain things.

I had 3 pairs of Cartier optucal glasses I needed lens updates for. It was impossible to find a shop... who could drill lens for my rimless frames. They did a great job and at half the cost of my usual shop in Chicago. The staff is super friendly and helpful. I will be back for sure!

Scratched my eye on vacation, which resulted in a scratched cornea. I have no previous eye condition... s yet finding this provider, getting an appointment was smooth. Wait time was short and the actual appointment was quick. Dr. Loriane Payan was very sweet, spoke to me as if we were friends and I felt comfortable asking questions. Would recommend to anyone!

I’ve always received friendly customer service and professional support. I like the fact that I ca... n ask questions without feeling mindless, or feel I’ve been rushed out as if I’m some type of number or a quota to be filled. Dr. Jose is the best.

First of all, where has this place been all my life? If it wasn’t for my mom’s recommendation, t... hen I wouldn’t have had any idea about how good this place is. The whole experience was nothing short of incredible. Dr. Lorraine Payan is definitely a very good eye doctor, from the instant she walked in, she was very personable and very friendly. She was extremely thorough and knowledgeable about the health of my eyes. I’m glad to have found this place and that they take my insurance which saved me a lot of money. You can bet that I will return for my next visit, as this is my new place to get my eyes checked. Thank you.

Amazing place. Very caring and understanding individuals. Dr. Jose Payan is an incredible eye doctor... . Very down to earth and does not mind educating his patients during the treatment process. I wish I would’ve taken a picture of my eyes before & after my infection. Finding a trusty eye doctor or eye care center can be difficult, so I truly feel blessed that I stumbled upon this place. I will recommend this place to anyone. You can tell how much they care about the work they do, and I hope each employee there knows how appreciated they are.

How to Prepare for Cataract Surgery

  • Apply antibiotic or anti-inflammatory eyedrops a few days before surgery if instructed to by your eye doctor
  • Arrange for a ride after the surgery, since you won’t be able to drive
  • Wash your face in the morning of the procedure and don’t wear eye makeup, strong perfumes or aftershave

What Happens During Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery removes your natural cloudy lens and replaces it with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) to improve and restore vision. This common and very safe procedure is performed by an eye doctor (ophthalmologist) on an outpatient basis.

  • The eye surgeon (ophthalmologist) will perform cataract surgery on one eye at a time. That means that you will come in for another surgery on the second eye. The procedure is brief and typically takes 30 to 45 minutes to complete.
  • The eye doctor will place drops into your eyes to numb them and dilate your pupils. Though you’ll be conscious during the procedure, you may be offered a sedative to help you remain calm. The eye surgeon will then remove your natural lens and replace it with the IOL. You should feel no pain or discomfort thanks to the anesthetic.

Cataract Surgery After-Care

Senior couple with glasses

After surgery, you may feel a bit drowsy as an after-effect of the sedative. Your eye doctor will prescribe eye drops to prevent infection, inflammation and to reduce pressure within your eye. The surgeon may recommend that you wear an eye patch for a few days after your surgery and the protective shield when you sleep during the recovery period. Make sure to avoid rubbing your eyes or touching them unless necessary.

A day after cataract surgery, we'll provide a post-operative eye exam to make sure that all is well. Your Canyon Lakes At Stonegate optometrist will further perform a series of follow-up exams in the weeks and months to come. If determined that you require corrective lenses following your cataract surgery, we'll make sure you get the proper prescription.


Cataract Surgery Management FAQs

What are side effects of cataract surgery?

While side effects are rare, there are some issues that people commonly encounter in the days after surgery, as the eyes heal.

  • Dry eye
  • Feeling that something is in the eye
  • Blurry vision
  • Light sensitivity

If any of these side effects do not subside within a week or two, please contact Cy-Fair EyeCare.

Can I delay cataract surgery

You can delay cataract surgery, but keep in mind that your vision will likely worsen the longer you put off the procedure.

When is cataract surgery not recommended?

Cataract patients who also have age-related macular degeneration or retinal detachment may not respond well to cataract surgery and the new lens may not correct vision.

Can cataract surgery give me 20/20 vision?

If you had great vision before developing cataracts, it’s likely that cataract surgery will restore your sight. Moreover, the IOL inserted into your eye can be designed to correct refractive errors, providing you with clear vision.
