The years roll by and life gets a rhythm. Reading your favorite digital mag on the internet, you notice the tails of the “b”, “p” or “d” do not appear, and everything has plenty of “a’s”. You decide it has to be the print. You begin to stretch the monitor screen to make it bigger. You pick up a medicine bottle one day, and you can only see the patterned outline of the words, but not the individual letters. Colors are not as bright, and the world has become many shades of gray. Friend you have what has been called a cataract. Celebrate because you have lived a long life. Cataracts define as a clouding of the clear lens of your eye. It’s like looking through fog. Cataracts gradually develop over time and the body adapts.
Symptoms of cataracts
The Sugarland Eye and Laser Center Clinic in Houston says look for these signs to determine if you have developed cataracts.
– Sensitive to light
– Halos around lights
– Colors look faded
– Double vision in one eye
– Cloudy or blurry vision
– Cannot see at night
There exists a solution
Glasses only work for a while with cataracts, but laser eye surgery exists that can help with the problem permanently. One of the most recommended procedures by surgeons, goes by the name Lensx Laser. This technology has been used in more than 400,000 cataracts refractive surgery. In 67 countries, 3500 surgeons have received training. The process has high definition imaging that makes for precise incisions. In cataract surgery, it matters how precise the incision becomes made because it gives the optimum chance for clear vision. With high resolution cross sectional technology, you get 360-degree view of the lens. Line scans give the whole picture of the spherical eye. Better yet, the one-piece design of the patient interface has a floating laser head objective. This minimizes corneal distortion, reduces intraocular pressure, and fixates the eye.
What does it mean to you the patient?
It means your doctor and clinic are using the latest equipment with the best ophthalmic practices to give you the best outcome for sight. It does so with such an efficiency and precision, it saves money with each use, and improves the procedure. It’s a well-established procedure which means the doctor has had plenty of practice doing it.
Many of the LensSx Laser come with the Verion digital marker which helps with the precision. It auto positions the surgical plan reducing the programming time. It also gives the physician a choice with its surgeon selectable centration along the visual axis and limbus. This enhances a cataract procedure making your doctor more confident and the operation more precise.
How well your procedure with LensX goes truly depends on the expertise of your surgeon and his staff. Without their continual insistence on updating technology and methods for improvement your surgery will not be as grand as it could be. Find a doctor of Dr. Amjad Khokhar’s quality that even the military trust their eyes to such as Air Force pilots.
