Cataract Surgery in Torrance

Just as there are two eyes for every person, there are two lenses in each eye – crystalline lenses to be precise. These lenses sit just behind the iris, the color portion in each eye. Like the lens inside a camera, the eye’s lens needs to focus light in the eye in order to function properly. However, a cloudy substance known as a cataract, changes clarity and images are no longer clear as they were meant to be. In fact, cataracts are the leading cause of blindness among American seniors.

What Are Cataracts?

Approximately 50 percent of people in the United States over the age of 65 will develop cataracts around this point in their life. A cataract is essentially a clouding of an eye lens, and causes a varying degree of vision obstruction. As the cataract progresses, so will the size of the milky, white substance and it will interfere the way your optic system processes light – creating a blurry field view. It should be known that not all cataracts will cause vision interference, but when the lens loses clarity, the only solution is to replace it through cataract surgery.

Fortunately, Wolstan & Goldberg Eye Associates are available to perform cataract surgery for Torrance patients in order to restore healthy and clear vision.
If you have a cataract(s), you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:

Types of Cataracts

Many patients lose the flexibility in their eye lenses over the age of 40. This is a sign of cataract development, but should be diagnosed from our cataract surgeons at Wolstan & Goldberg Eye Associates. We can only determine if you are a good candidate for clear lens extraction by evaluating the current condition of your eyes and we may discover one of the following types of cataracts:

Replacing Your Cataracts with a New Lens

Upon evaluation and discovery for cataract surgery, your cataract surgeon from Wolstan & Goldberg Eye Associates will help you become familiar with the various types of lens replacement options.

Types of Lenses

For the majority of our cataract cases, we use traditional mono-focal intraocular lenses (IOLs) to correct cataracts, as well as correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, or presbyopia. Unlike traditional IOLs, we deliver the best solution possible to treat your condition of cataracts, and they may even help reduce or eliminate your need for glasses and contact lenses.

Our doctors will evaluate your precise needs to arrive at the best diagnosis for your cataract issues.

When Should I Consider Cataract Surgery?

Upon diagnosis for your condition, our cataract surgeons can establish a time line for when your need for surgery is necessary if you have not had it once already. Some patients choose to undergo surgery at the first sign of cataract formation as a precaution to vision loss, but not all cases impair vision or require surgery.
