Trying to http://www.oceancountyeye.com/doctors/almallah.php>choose a cataract surgeon? Honesty, integrity and skill remain the hallmarks of the most successful surgeons. However, today’s cataract surgery offers a wide variety of new, cutting-edge procedures and techniques. This means your best choice is the cataract surgeon who also understands these new procedures and has access to the latest technology to ensure the best outcome.

How Cataract Surgery Has Changed

Three decades ago, it was difficult to decide whether to undergo lens implantation. Prior to development of the IOL, cataract patients were forced to wear very thick glasses or hard contact lenses after surgery, since the natural lens of the eye was removed. As IOL technology became more advanced, some patients found they still needed glasses after surgery to correct near and/or distance vision. Today, the intraocular lens implant (IOL) is an amazing advance in vision technology that replaces the damaged natural lens quickly, painlessly and successfully. Some patients no longer require glasses after cataract surgery.

Thousands of people have http://www.oceancountyeye.com/diseases/cataract.html cataract surgery every day in the United States. It is one of the most common surgical procedures, and can be done on an outpatient basis. This means you go in, have cataract surgery, and can return home in the same day. The obvious difference with cataract surgery is that you’ll see much better after than you did before.

If you are nearsighted or farsighted, there are multiple ways to improve your sight, such as glasses, contacts or LASIK. However, no medications, eye drops, or exercises will help to improve the condition of your eyesight if you have a http://www.oceancountyeye.com/services/cataract_surgery.html cataract. The only solution is cataract surgery. During cataract surgery, your natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens, which is called an intraocular lens (IOL).

The ReZoom™ Multifocal Intraocular Lens (IOL) treats cataracts by replacing the natural lens. It offers the opportunity to see up close and at a distance with little or no need for glasses or contact lenses. For those who have worn eyeglasses or contacts for many years, ReZoom can provide independence from corrective lenses for the first time.

Understanding Cataracts

A http://www.bellevue-lasik.com/refractive-cataract-surgery.html cataract occurs when proteins in the eye’s natural lens begin to clump as the eye ages. They reduce the crucial transparency of the lens, blocking light from reaching the retina. Vision becomes hazy or blurry. You might also experience light sensitivity, double vision and difficulty with night vision.

Contact Lens Infections

There are different types of contact lenses to address different vision problems and eye health problems, as well as individual preferences.

• Rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contact lenses do not modify their curvature for the eyes but instead modify the corneal curvature. They allow oxygen through to nourish the eyes and last for several years. They must be removed and cleaned every night.
• Soft contact lenses adapt themselves to the corneal curvature and feel more comfortable to most people. They are removed for cleaning each night and must be replaced often.

The Difference Between ReZoom and ReSTOR Lenses

While ReSTOR and ReZoom Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) both provide people with multifocal vision after they have had their eye’s natural lenses removed from cataract surgery or Clear Lens Exchange (CLE), there are some key differences between the two lenses.

ReSTOR

http://www.hummeleye.com/restor.html ReSTOR lenses use apodized diffractive technology to provide patients with clear near, intermediate, and far vision. These lenses use the amount of light entering the eye to provide you with clear vision.

ReZoom

http://www.hummeleye.com/rezoom.html ReZoom IOLs have different focal zones on the lens itself to focus light and provide you with clear vision. ReZoom IOLs are also square shaped, which some doctors claim to improve the fit within the eye.
