Cataract Surgery in St. Louis
Have you been experiencing blurry vision and have been having trouble seeing in certain situations? Has it become more and more difficult to do night driving and to read street signs when you are driving? If this is the case, you may well have eye cataracts. The good news is, in most cases eye cataracts can be very easily corrected with eye surgery. When you need cataract surgery in St. Louis, you can do no better than to seek cataract treatment at our office.
Our practice is Glaucoma Consultants of St. Louis. Many patients come to see us when they are experiencing blurred or otherwise poor vision. Our expert doctors are Dr. Paul M. Tesser, our ophthalmologist, and Dr. Jeremy A. Beatty, our optometrist. Our eye doctors are able to accurately diagnose the cause of your eye problem, and provide effective treatment. If you are diagnosed with eye cataracts you will most likely need to have cataract surgery in St. Louis
at some point. Cataracts will not be able to get better, and your vision will never improve without surgery. However, there is cataract surgery which will totally fix your vision by replacing the affected natural eye lens with a manmade clear lens.
Our cataract surgery in St. Louis
is done on an outpatient basis using laser surgery. If both eyes have cataracts we will operate on one eye at a time. The surgery is very short taking less than thirty minutes. The operation is performed with our patients needing only local anesthesia. The laser is used to make a tiny incision through which the natural lens is removed and the new lens is inserted. There are no stitches or bandages needed as a result of this surgery. When you leave the facility you will have a clear cover over your eye to protect it from inadvertent bumps, scratches, or pokes. This will need to be worn for the first day, and for the first night or two. Many people experience clear vision the following day, however, everyone’s healing schedule is different. Complete healing will take several weeks. If you think that you may have cataracts, make an appointment to be seen by one of our doctors. If you are in need of cataract correction surgery, we will be able to provide that for you. Cataract surgery is one of the most common eye surgeries performed today.
