Each surgery is tailored to the patient’s degree of cataract, and visual expectations after surgery. The Eye Health Centre takes pride in meeting all patient’s expectations after their procedure is complete.
Some patients are happy to wear spectacles after the surgery, if their surgical outcome allows them to regain a driving licence, continue a hobby, or perform general day to day tasks that the cataracts were previously making difficult. Other patients prefer to take the opportunity to replace the cloudy lens with an artificial lens that also corrects their pre-existing vision error, known as the prescription.
This means patients may no longer require glasses after the surgery, for tasks including driving, reading, sports or computer work. The pre-op workup is a very important component to ensuring this outcome is possible.
A number of highly specialised instruments are used to collect precise information about your eye, which allows accurate calculation of the intraocular lens that will be placed in the eye during surgery. We encourage patients to who wish to understand more about the options for post cataract surgery vision outcomes to make an appointment with our Clinical Optometrists for further discussions.
