Staying on top of your eye health is incredibly important. Many people often think they have themselves medically covered when they schedule their annual physical with a general practitioner, but it is recommended that everyone plan a visit with their eye doctor as well. Eye conditions can crop up at any age and many of them yield little to no symptoms during their early stages. Because of this, many eye diseases go unnoticed until they have reached more advanced stages and sometimes permanent vision loss can partially if not entirely set in. If you have an eye condition, such as cataracts and have even undergone cataract surgery, it is still important that you visit your doctor regularly. Here at Glaucoma Consultants of St. Louis, our St. Louis cataract surgeons can provide you with the cataract care you need, including multi-focal and accommodating lenses.
A cataract is when the lens of the eye becomes cloudy. The intensity of the cloudiness often worsens over time and causes vision loss. The lens of the eye is normally clear. It allows light to pass through it through the pupil to the retina located at the back of the eye to be processed into images by the brain. When the lens becomes cloudy, your vision becomes blurred. Luckily, cataract surgery is possible but may leave you relying on reading glasses or bifocals. Some people may not wish to wear glasses or had no need for them prior to the development of cataracts. If this is the case, then our St. Louis cataract eye surgeons can provide you with an alternative. Multi-focal and accommodating lenses use advanced technology to achieve clear vision at a distance, at intermediary distances and up close without the use of glasses. If you do not wish to switch between readers or rely on bifocals, then visit us here at Glaucoma Consultants of St. Louis for more options.
Multi-focus and accommodating lenses will allow you to see at all distances without the need for glasses while allowing your eyes to see comfortably. Your eyes will no longer have to adjust when looking from small text in a book or menu to looking at something across the room such as a clock. Our St. Louis cataract surgeons at Glaucoma Consultants of St. Louis are here to make sure that you feel as comfortable as possible and that your vision is always at its best.
