Cataract Symptoms

Patients with cataracts often describe their sight in these terms:

  • cloudy vision
  • dim vision
  • blurred vision
  • double vision
  • ghost visions
  • glare
  • color disturbance
  • sensitivity to light
  • seeing halos around lights

No-Needle, No-Stitch Cataract Eye Surgery

No-needle, no-stitch cataract eye surgery can be the right option for some patients. For most patients, only an eye drop anesthetic is needed, making recovery faster. Cataract removal through a small incision requires an ultrasound technique known as phacoemulsification. This method uses only sound waves and fluid to break the cataract into small particles. They are easily washed from the eye. After the cataract has been removed, an intraocular lens implant is placed in the eye. This implant is permanent, lasts a lifetime, and does not need any maintenance. The very small incision heals very quickly, almost always without stitches. Usually, patients resume full activities the next day after surgery, including driving, bending, lifting, golfing, bowling, etc.
