Our eye doctor will be able to diagnose and manage your New Rochelle NY cataracts

When patients are diagnosed with New Rochelle NY cataracts, they often can still have their vision corrected simply by getting an updated lens prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, if your cataracts have reached the point where they cannot be corrected with a new lens prescription, our eye doctor will be able to refer you to an ophthalmologist who can provide you with cataract laser surgery. This surgery is highly successful in treating patients with cataracts, and is one of the safest and most effective eye surgeries around today. It is performed on an outpatient basis in the patient only needs to receive local anesthetic eye drops to remain comfortable. However, many patients choose to put off the need for cataract surgery by getting a new lens prescription. Our eye doctor can provide you with this new lens prescription as well as monitor your cataracts and let you know when it is time for you to have cataract surgery. It is impossible to determine how quickly cataracts will advance, or how far they will advance, however, most cataracts will go on to cause total blindness if left untreated. During cataract surgery, the natural lens of the eye is removed and replaced with a new man-made lens. When a patient has cataracts it means that the lenses in the eye has thickened and causes blurred vision.
