Cataract Surgery Bonita Springs

What is a Cataract?

When the lens in the eye becomes cloudy or opaque, it results in a condition called a cataract, leading to blurred vision and the potential risk of blindness if untreated. The lens is essential for focusing light onto the retina to achieve clear vision. If you notice symptoms of a cataract, Tyson Eye provides cataract surgery in Bonita Springs, Florida. Our doctors are prepared to assist you in understanding cataracts and exploring personalized treatment options. Schedule an appointment today to embark on your journey towards clearer vision.

Cataract Symptoms

The symptoms of cataracts typically emerge slowly, manifesting as painless clouding or blurring of vision that gradually diminishes visual clarity. Individuals with cataracts often struggle with seeing clearly in low-light conditions, exhibit sensitivity to glare, and notice halos around lights. Additionally, colors may appear less vibrant, affecting the overall perception of their surroundings. As cataracts progress, routine tasks such as reading or driving may become more difficult. Regular eye exams are crucial for early detection, enabling timely intervention to preserve optimal eye health and address any changes in vision.

What To Expect During Cataract Surgery

To ensure a smooth and successful cataract surgery experience with Tyson Eye, it’s essential to adhere to the recommended preparations. Begin by using the prescribed eye drops three days before your scheduled procedure, focusing on the eye designated for surgery. On the morning of the surgery, continue taking your regular medications, especially those for conditions like seizures, heart problems, hypertension, or respiratory issues, with a small sip of water.

Arrange for a responsible adult companion to accompany you for transportation and assistance after surgery. Dress comfortably in a short-sleeved shirt or blouse with front buttons, facilitating easy dressing and undressing, and consider taking a bath or shower before your appointment for added comfort.

On the day of the procedure, refrain from wearing makeup or false eyelashes, and leave jewelry and valuables at home. Opt for comfortable, non-restrictive clothing, and avoid wearing contact lenses or pantyhose to ensure a hassle-free experience at the surgery center.

Adhere to pre-surgery guidelines by abstaining from eating or drinking anything after midnight on the night before your scheduled procedure. These preparatory steps contribute to a smooth cataract surgery process and set the stage for a successful outcome.

Following the surgery, prioritize rest for the remainder of the day and take precautions to protect your eyes from water or potential injury in the subsequent weeks. It’s normal to experience slight scratchiness or irritation in your eye as the effects of the numbing medication wear off.

For at least three days post-procedure, tape a protective shield over the surgical eye during nap time and bedtime to prevent inadvertent rubbing while sleeping. Refrain from driving within the first 24 hours after surgery and abstain from alcohol consumption during this period.

Manage mild discomfort with Tylenol™ or ibuprofen as needed, and wear sunglasses outdoors to shield your eyes. Continue using each prescribed eye drop as directed until further guidance from your doctor. Attend your follow-up appointment the next day for additional instructions on eye care and continued use of the eye drops.
