The Procedure of Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is a quick and relatively easy outpatient procedure that most often only takes about 10 minutes. One of our expert surgeons will make a small incision in your eye and then remove the cataract. Next, they will place an intraocular lens (IOL) to replace the cloudy lens in your eye. Finally, they will close the wound.

You will be given eye drops to help you heal and recover from the surgery. It is important to follow the doctor’s instructions on how and when to use the eye drops for optimal healing.

Who is a Candidate for Refractive Cataract Surgery?

Cataracts are a common condition that occur when the lens of your eye becomes cloudy. This can happen slowly over time and can make it difficult for you to see. According to the National Eye Institute “The risk of having cataracts increases with every passing decade of life around 40. By the age of 75, half of white Americans have cataracts.”

Premium cataract surgery in Fargo is recommended when your vision begins to affect your quality of life or interferes with your ability to perform daily activities. 

Some signs of a cataracts include:

  • Clouded, blurred, or dim vision
  • Increasing difficulty driving at night
  • Fading or yellowing of colors
  • Double vision in a single eye
  • Sensitivity to light and glare
  • Halos around lights
  • Difficulty reading in dim light
  • Frequent changes in glasses or contact lens

Cataracts can be treated with surgery. During surgery, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens. Cataract surgery is a safe and effective procedure that has a high success rate.

Difference between Intraocular Lens & Natural Lens

An intraocular lens (IOL) is a type of clear artificial lens that is used to replace the cloudy natural lens of your eye. IOLs are made from a variety of materials such as acrylic, silicone, or polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA).

Natural lenses are made from proteins and water. Over time, these proteins can break down and cause the lens to become cloudy. This is what is called a cataract.

IOLs are used in cataract surgery to replace the natural lens of your eye. IOLs are made to last a lifetime. They do not require any special care and will not break down over time as natural lenses can.

Preparing for Your Cataract Surgery

As with any surgery, it is important to follow your eye doctor’s instructions on how to prepare for your procedure. These may include:

– stopping certain medications

– arranging for someone to drive you home after surgery

It is also important to have a list of all the medications you are taking, as well as any allergies you have.

No, macular degeneration occurs in the retina (back of the eye). Cataract surgery deals with the lens in the front of the eye. Patients should continue to have annual eye exams with their primary eye doctor to monitor their eye health.

Patients are recommended to take it easy for the rest of the day after the surgery, but are free to return to normal activities as comfort allows. For the first week you should avoid rubbing or bumping the eye. Patients should also be cautious about heavy lifting or swimming in hot tubs, pools, or lakes for one month.

The young eye has the ability to focus up close, like the zoom function on a camera. As you age, that function degenerates, causing the loss of near vision that requires reading glasses or bifocals. We can work with you to find solutions for your near vision problems as well. As the eye ages and vision deteriorates, cataracts can also form in the lens of the eye.

Lenses are made of an acrylic material that is inserted inside the eye. The eye will not react to the lens, unlike potential reactions to other organic materials (glass, metal). The great news is that this allows the eye to remain clear while avoiding the degradation and color change that occurs with your natural lens.
