A cataract is a cloudy area in the lens of the eye that leads to a decrease in vision. Cataracts often develop slowly and can affect one or both eyes. Symptoms may include: faded colors, blurry or double vision, halos around light, trouble with bright lights, trouble seeing at night
Pterygium (commonly called "Surfer's Eye") is a fleshy mass of thickened conjunctiva that grows over part of the cornea usually from the inner side of the eyeball and can cause a disturbance of vision. Symptoms can also include: inflammation including bloodshot whites of the eye on the side with the pterygium, itching and burning sensations on the eye surface, mild eye pain
If you have cloudy vision after your cataract surgery, we can use an in-office laser treatment to safely, effectively, and painlessly correct it. This procedure, known as a YAG Laser Capsulotomy, allows light to clearly pass through the pupil into the eye. With this procedure, your vision is restored in a matter of hours.
