After many years of successful cataract replacement surgery, the same procedures are now being applied to correcting vision before cataracts have developed. Many people over 40 are choosing IOLs when their natural lenses begin to lose their flexibility, reducing visual clarity at near and intermediate ranges. This aging process is called presbyopia. Since cataracts are probably inevitable for these patients, clear lens extraction and replacement provides additional years of good vision with little or no dependency on glasses.
If you are over 40 and beginning to experience the early stages of cataract development, the surgeons of Wolstan & Goldberg Eye Associates will be happy to evaluate your case and help you determine if you are a good candidate for clear lens extraction.
