Cataract Surgery Leesburg, Eustis, Clermont
Cataracts, or the clouding of the eye's lens causing blurry vision, are extremely common among adults. Cataract surgery safely removes the cataract and replaces the eye's natural lens with an artificial implantable lens. The eye care professionals at Total Eye Care Center have been performing cataract surgery for patients throughout the Eustis, Clermont, and Leesburg region of Florida for many years; their goal remains to restore optimal vision to each and every patient who enters our practice.
If you are a candidate for cataract surgery, we invite you to learn more about the procedure and contact Total Eye Care Center to schedule a consultation with one of our eye surgeons.
The Cataract Removal Procedure
Rest assured that you are in good hands for your cataract surgery; Total Eye Care Center’s Leesburg location was proudly the first surgery center in the Lake County area dedicated exclusively to ophthalmic surgery. During the relatively quick procedure (which lasts about 10 minutes), our doctors will remove the cataract and implant an intraocular lens. Patients will remain comfortable throughout the entire procedure, and many people will notice an improvement in vision almost immediately after recovering from surgery.
Risks and Complications of Cataract Surgery
Cataract surgery is considered to be one of the safest of all surgical procedures. However, as with any surgery, there are risks to consider, including infection, damage or displacement of the intraocular lens implant, and even complete loss of vision. These complications occur only in the rarest of cases, but our doctors like patients to be informed of all possible scenarios.
Cataract Surgery Side Effects
Side effects of cataract surgery are unlikely in ideal candidates. These may include inflammation and tenderness of the eye, or macular edema (fluid retention in the retina). Your risk of side effects significantly diminishes when surgery is performed by a doctor with the talent and experience of our associates. Fortunately, complications may be easily treated. Read more about the side effects of cataract surgery.
Benefits of Cataract Surgery
Clear, crisp vision is the most notable benefit of cataract surgery. If you’ve suffered from blurry vision caused by cataracts, you’ll no doubt enjoy being able to read, drive, and participate in sports and activities much more easily with your new implantable lens. We never tire of our patients’ testimony of their improved quality of life.
Recovery from Cataract Surgery
Recovery from cataract surgery is typically a short process which transpires smoothly. Some patients may experience slight discomfort, redness, or itchiness, but our surgeons will provide instructions to prevent these complications. After resting for a few days, patients are generally able to return to work and their normal routines.
Cost of Cataract Surgery
Understandably, the cost of cataract surgery is a major consideration. The exact price of the operation will vary by individual, depending on the particular treatment plan and needs, but generally the cost includes surgeons’ fees, hospital or surgical center fees, anesthesia fees, the type of IOL selected, and some follow-up care. Certain insurance plans will cover part or all of your cataract surgery expenses. Our staff will help you determine whether your insurance coverage extends to cataract surgery.
Intraocular Lenses (IOLs)
To reduce dependency on glasses after cataract surgery, our surgeons will replace your natural lens with an artificial, intraocular lens. There are unique features and advantages to each type of IOL: multifocal, monofocal, and toric. To determine the best lens implant for your specific visual needs, we recommend that you schedule a comprehensive consultation with one of our cataract surgeons.
