If your vision is clouded by cataracts, you may actually be losing the ability to enjoy the very things, places and people that make life worth living. Fortunately, cataract surgery can help you regain what you’ve lost, both in terms of your vision and quality of life.
Vision with cataracts has been described as seeing life through a cloudy film. But a cataract is not simply a “film” over the eyes. It cannot be prevented and it will not go away without surgery. During surgery, the old, clouded lens is removed and replaced with a new, artificial lens to restore your vision. This replacement lens, in most cases, will last the rest of your life!
When you visit Dr. William E. Colcomb for an evaluation of your cataract, he will discuss many aspects of your eye health and recommend a mode of cataract surgery and replacement lens based on your general health and lifestyle preferences. Once you have considered your options, your personal surgical coordinator will walk you through the entire process, from scheduling surgery, handling insurance questions, or even obtaining financing. Holcomb Laser Cener will be here for you throughout the entire process.
