Improve Your Vision with Personally Tailored Cataract Treatment

Cataracts are an extremely common eye condition that causes clouding of the natural lens. They are typically associated with aging, however, certain medical conditions such as diabetes or injury can also contribute to the development of a cataract. While we specialize in surgery, the team at Seaside Ophthalmology, Inc., provides a diverse range of cataract treatments, including conservative treatment with corrective eyewear to manage the effects of your condition. Our doctors, serving the Brunswick, GA, community and surrounding areas, are passionate about helping patients improve their vision and will work closely with you to determine the best solution for your needs. 

A Closer Look at Cataracts

Cataracts occur when proteins break down and clump together, blocking light from properly entering the eye. The eye's natural lens can becomes less transparent due to aging, medical conditions, or even a previous eye surgery. The development of a cataract is typically gradual but left untreated, the condition can have a significant impact on your vision.

Cataracts occur due to a buildup of proteins in the eye's naturally clear lens.

Symptoms

As cells accumulate over time, the condition will worsen and cause a variety of symptoms. Patients may experience: 

  • Blurred vision
  • Double vision in one eye
  • Muted colors 
  • Difficulty seeing at night 
  • Halos or glares around lights
  • Sensitivity to light and glare 
  • Frequent changes in vision prescription

If you believe you may have cataracts, one of our doctors can conduct an examination to reach an accurate diagnosis. 

Your Treatment Options

Our doctors take all the time necessary to explain the severity of your condition, as well as the benefits of various treatment options, so you can make an educated decision regarding your care. We can typically treat cataracts in one of three ways: 

Our doctors provide a diverse range of cataract treatments to manage the effects of your condition, ranging from conservative treatment with corrective eyewear to surgery.

Glasses & Contact Lenses

Glasses or contact lenses can help offset the vision issues caused by cataracts. As a cataract worsens, however, you may need to frequently change your prescription to accommodate the increased level of visual impairment. At some point, patients who cannot achieve clear vision any longer with eyewear will often elect to undergo cataract surgery

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is an effective solution for many patients. During the procedure, the natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial device known as an intraocular lens. Your doctor will typically recommend cataract surgery when the condition has begun to interfere with your ability to perform daily activities. This can allow patients to maintain an active and independent lifestyle.

Our Approach to Treatment

We value our patients' time and focus on providing convenient, efficient care. To make the process as stress-free as possible, we can take care of several items in one appointment including:

  • Consultation
  • Testing 
  • Same-day training
  • Schedule surgery, if needed 

While this entails a longer visit, many patients prefer a more streamlined approach.
