If you are having trouble seeing details in certain lighting conditions, or having trouble seeing while driving at night, you may have cataracts. At Armesto Eye Associates, our Lemoyne eye doctor, just one of whom is Dr. David M. Armesto, can examine your eyes and let you know whether you need to have cataract surgery.

At our eye care practice, our Lemoyne eye doctor will be able to easily determine whether or not you have cataracts during a regular eye exam. Cataracts do not need to be immediately treated with eye surgery, and sometimes a simple prescription change to your lenses can be an excellent intermediate solution. However, most cataracts will go on to cause total blindness unless the natural lenses are eventually replaced with man-made intraocular lenses. Happily, cataract surgery is now one of the safest and most commonly performed eye surgeries today. It is performed with the assistance of a laser. During the cataract surgery, the damaged natural lens is removed from your eye through a microscopic incision, and your new intraocular lens is replace through the same incision. This surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, and takes only about 20 minutes to perform. Our patients remain perfectly comfortable during this procedure due to our use of local anesthesia; you will also be given a mild sedative before the procedure. When a patient has a cataract, they have a clouding of the natural lens of the eye. This makes the lens unable to properly focus light onto the retina, which in turn transmits information to the brain for interpretation. It is very common for people to develop cataracts over age 60, and by age 75 a great deal of people will develop cataracts. After surgery is completed, our doctor will add additional drops in your eyes so that infection will be prevented and inflammation will be reduced. There is no need for any stitches or bandages after the surgery, and patients generally remain extremely comfortable during recovery.

Being able to see clearly and something that many people need to consider on a regular basis, especially people who have any form of vision impairment. Many types of vision impairment can be easily treated with the help of prescription lenses, but in the case of a medical condition such as cataracts you may eventually need to consult an eye surgeon in order to get the proper treatment that you need. If you happen to be looking at getting Mechanicsburg cataract surgery then we here at Armesto Eye Associates can absolutely help you get the care they need.

Oddly enough, cataracts are often treated early on much like a common vision impairment like nearsightedness. Cataracts develop when the lens of the eye begins to thicken. The lens of the eye is otherwise known as the cornea, and very much acts like the lens of the camera. The curvature and clarity of a camera’s lens will determine how clear images the images it produces are seen as a result. Similarly, the curvature in the clarity of a cornea will affect the overall clarity of your eyesight. Differences in the curvature of your cornea will generally result in more common forms of vision impairment which is nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or anywhere in between. Problems with the thickness of your cornea however will lead to a general difficulty with eyesight seeing as the lens of your eye will become clouded and foggy as it grows sticker over time. Early on, cataracts can be treated with the help of prescription lenses, but sooner or later your corneas will look into the point where prescription lenses will not be of much help, and you may technically be blind as a result. In this case, you may need Mechanicsburg cataract surgery. Here at Armesto Eye Associates you will be in the hands of one of our expert eye surgeons can provide you with the precise care that you need in order to expertly remove your thickened corneas and replace them with artificial lenses that will provide you with the clear vision that you need.

People who have diabetes, a family medical history of cataracts, or have even experienced significant eye damage in the past may be at an increased risk of developing cataracts. Additionally, adults over the age of 65 are generally more likely to develop any number of different eye related conditions and diseases. Regardless, annual eye exams are recommended for everyone, and you may just find out that you need Mechanicsburg cataract surgery in the event that you have this condition and it has grown significantly worse. Our surgeons here at Armesto Eye Associates can identify the issue and provide you with the treatment that you need.
