What are cataracts?
A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens of the eye. This condition can be resolved with premium cataract surgery.
By implementing the state-of-the-art technology behind intraocular lenses (IOLs), our doctors can remove the cloudy lens of your eye and replace it with a custom IOL to fit your specific needs. From reading a newspaper to driving at night, premium cataract surgery helps patients rediscover their visual independence.
Cataracts typically develop slowly and painlessly over time – in fact, in the early stages, symptoms may be so mild that you may not even realize your vision is changing. However, as the cataracts become more dense, you will eventually experience one or more of the following symptoms:
Symptoms of Cataracts
- Painless blurring of vision
- Sensitivity to glare and light
- Double vision in one eye
- Poor night vision
- Fading or yellowing of colors
- Frequent changes in glasses or contact lens prescriptions
Premium Cataract Treatment in Jacksonville
Our surgeons have performed more than 35,000 cataract procedures and have a combined 50 years of practice at the Mayo Clinic, University of Florida, and more. Florida Eye Specialists offers the very best in experience, safety, and accuracy for our patients.
At Florida Eye Specialists, we are proud to be the first practice in NE Florida to have introduced laser cataract surgery, offering the most advanced technology available at our state-of-the-art surgery center. In the time we have been performing laser-assisted cataract surgery, we have completed over 7,000 cases at our surgery center.
In addition to our laser-assisted cataract surgery, Florida Eye Specialists implements the latest technology in premium cataract surgeries—intraocular lens (IOL) technology. An IOL is an artifical lens that’ is implanted in the eye during cataract surgery, after the eye’s cloudy lens has been removed. Today’s IOLs offer crisper, higher quality vision than ever before, with the ability to correct near, immediate, and far vision at the same time.
These lenses are applied on a personal basis and suited for each patient individually. With lenses to resolve issues ranging from poor focus and dry eye to astigmatism and halos, IOLs used in premium cataract surgery can be fit to suit each patient’s lifestyle.
In addition to our cataract physicians, we also provide our patients with a dedicated Cataract Consultant who will explain your treatment options and help you select the best solution for your needs. They will walk with you every step of the way to ensure you always have the resources you need to make the best decisions for your health.
