Cataract Surgery Offered by Apex Eye for Patients in Blue Ash, OH & Other Cincinnati Metro Area Suburbs
Cataract surgery is the only way to remove a cataract that has advanced to the point of causing blurred or lost vision. Cataracts are part of the natural aging process and develop gradually on the lens. They typically start out small and initially have minimal effect on a patient’s vision. Over time, the cataract grows and begins to disrupt eyesight by causing blurry vision, poor night vision, and many times a frequently changing eyeglass prescription. Once this occurs, no medication, laser treatment or exercise regimen can make a cataract disappear. The only way to eliminate a cataract is through surgery. If you are concerned that you may have a cataract and you live in Blue Ash, Ohio, or the surrounding Metropolitan area, turn to Apex Eye. We are committed to providing our patients with hands-on, professional care, and we can perform cataract surgery that will significantly improve both your vision and your quality of life.
During cataract surgery, the lens in your eye that has become clouded by the cataract is replaced with a permanent intraocular lens implant. When this procedure is performed by an experienced Apex Eye surgeon you can expect:
- To go home on the same day – Cataract surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, and because we use advanced microsurgical techniques that do not require stitches, an overnight stay is not necessary.
- To have The Apex Eye surgeon’s assistance choosing the best lens for you – The Apex Eye surgeons offer a complete range of intraocular lens options from conventional standard lenses (monofocal) to state of the art premium lenses ( multi-focal, toric). Premium lens implants greatly reduce or eliminate the need for eyeglasses or contact lenses after cataract surgery. During your evaluation visit, your surgeon can help you choose a lens that will best meet your specific visual needs and lifestyle.
- To be treated by the same Apex Eye surgeon throughout all aspects of your cataract care – The same Apex Eye surgeon will handle your cataract care from the initial evaluation and examination, pre-op, surgery, post-op and any follow-up care. This is an important distinction in our standard of care and allows us to the opportunity to build a personal relationship with our patients.
