Massachusetts Eye Surgeon Advises Lens Implants Best Choice for Cataracts
(1888PressRelease) D'Ambrosio Eye Care uses lens implants for better vision correction after cataract surgery.
"As the "baby boomer" population surges in size, each day it seems as if more and more patients seem to want to know about cataracts," commented Francis A. D'Ambrosio, Jr., M.D., Medical Director of D'Ambrosio Eye Care. "Pretty much everyone knows someone who has a cataract or had cataract surgery, but today patients with cataracts all want to know if they will have to wear glasses after their cataract removal. They do not necessarily know or realize the options and positive results we achieve with lens implants for vision correction after cataract surgery today."
Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness worldwide. About 20.5 million Americans age 40 and older have cataracts and more than half of all Americans develop cataracts by age 80. A cataract is a clouding of the crystalline lens of the eye preventing light rays from passing through it easily. This results in a clouding and blurring of vision. For many patients, cataracts start out slowly and have little effect on vision at first. But, as the cataract becomes denser, so does the impact on vision. The most common symptoms that bother patients with cataracts include blurry or cloudy vision, sensitivity to light and glare, double vision in one eye, poor night vision, sometimes with haloes around lights, fading or yellowing of colors and often a need for frequent changes in glasses or contact lens prescriptions.
"The baby boomers of today who now have cataracts are accustomed to an active and mobile lifestyle. When a cataract begins to impact their ability to maintain that lifestyle by limiting activities or even limiting safe and comfortable mobility, then we tell them that it is time to consider cataract surgery and lens implants. We use advanced technology intraocular lens implants (IOL) to provide sharper vision even in dim lighting conditions, toric lens implants to correct astigmatism and even lens implants that correct near vision, arm's length vision as well as distance vision without requiring bifocals or reading glasses for the vast majority of patients," said Dr. D'Ambrosio Jr.
