If cataracts have become a hindrance in your life, and one that can no longer be adequately treated with corrective lenses, you can opt for cataract surgery here at the office of Dr. Sheldon Cowen. It’s effective, safe, and backed by specialized expertise and experience.
The reason that you need our Seattle eye surgery is that the protein buildups on your natural eye lenses that characterize this eye disease have become so numerous and large that your vision is now blurry and cloudy to the point where even with eyeglasses or contacts, you are unable to do the things you need to, and the things that you want to. Since there is no way to remove the cataracts from the lens surfaces, a two step process that is done in the course of one procedure will be done. First, your lenses are removed. Once they are gone, so are the obstacles to your vision. But since your lenses are responsible for focusing, you will need replacements. Fortunately, there is a perfect solution. Our Seattle eye surgery then puts in prosthetic lenses. They are called intraocular lens implants, or just IOLs. They are now made to be multifocal. And as a result of that, you will find that you now have sharp, clear vision at all distances; up close, far away, and in the intermediate range, as well. You will no longer be at the mercy of cataracts and the effects of it. Go back to doing all the things you had to stop: driving, reading, playing chess, using your computer, or just taking a walk.
Are you a good candidate for our Seattle eye surgery? You may well be, especially if your cataracts have become advanced. All you have to do is book an appointment for an examination and consultation at our office.
