At Brook Plaza Ophthalmology, we perform eye surgery in Sheepshead Bay for patients who suffer from cataracts. Refractive surgery is a procedure that allows us to remove the cloudy lens of the eye when a cataract is involved, and replace it with a new one. For the best in eye care, eye surgery and more, call Brook Plaza Ophthalmology.
Cataracts cause the proteins in the eye to cloud. Over time, it can get worse and cause the patient to need to wear new glasses and change their prescription frequently. Vision becomes impaired and the patient can no longer see clearly and may have trouble driving or performing everyday activities. Our eye surgery in Sheepshead Bay involves removing the cloudy lens, implanting an artificial lens, and healing the eye so that vision is clear again. The procedure, called a phacoemulsification, uses a small incision that is self-sealing. The procedure can be done in less than 30 minutes under local anesthesia. After the surgery, many patients have very good vision once again. They may need to use bifocals or reading glasses, however, in order to experience perfect vision.
Cataracts can be remedied at first with strong lighting and a stronger eyeglass prescription, but eventually the only way to treat them is with eye surgery in Sheepshead Bay. The procedure itself is easy, safe and effective. Many patients are extremely happy after their refractive surgery and eye exams.
