What is a cataract?

Most people over the age of 50 will develop cataracts at some time in their lives.

The good news is that cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure that takes just minutes to perform with a quick recovery time.

How would I know if I have a cataract?    A cataract develops gradually, so you may not notice a big change in your vision from one day to the next.  A cataract can easily be detected during a routine eye exam.  If you are starting to notice any of the following issues, you should make an appointment with Dr. Moran.

  1. Glare or Halos    
  2. Poor Night Vision  
  3. Cloudy or Blurry Vision                               –
  4. Colors Look Faded    
  5. Double Vision in One Eye

Many patients say that after cataract surgery they have the best vision of their lives.

During your cataract surgery, Dr. Moran will remove the cloudy lens of the eye, and replace it with a clear intraocular lens (IOL).  When we take your surgery measurements you will have some choices when it comes to the type of lens implant you will have.

Cataract surgery

An Intraocular Lens is Inserted during cataract surgery to improve your vision.

You can choose:

  • A Mono-focal IOL will provide you with one point of focus (like regular eyeglasses)
  • A Toric IOL provides one point of focus and corrects your astigmatism.
  • A Multi-focal IOL (ReSTOR) allows for a full range of vision – near, intermediate and distance – greatly reducing your need for glasses.
  • A Multi-focal IOL (ReSTOR/TORIC) which allows for a full range of vision – near intermediate and distance  & corrects your astigmatism.

We will talk to you about your daily life and your visual needs before we schedule your surgery.   We will review your lens choice options so that you get the right lens for you.  Dr. Moran will use his expertise to help you get the best outcome.
