Enhance Your Vision
Our team of ophthalmologists in Toledo, OH will remove and replace your damaged natural lens with a clear artificial lens to improve your vision. You may notice an improvement in eyesight as early as one day after the cataract surgery. Over 95% of individuals with healthy or strong eyes will have enhanced vision at the conclusion of the procedure. Your eyesight will continuously improve as your eyes heal.
Improve Your Quality of Life
Once the natural lenses in your eyes become clouded or damaged, it will become hard to perform activities such as working on a computer, driving, riding a bike, reading a book, walking, or eating. Living with cataracts can also make it hard for you to prepare meals or live independently. Our staff of optometrists and ophthalmologists in Toledo, OH will remove your cataracts to improve your mental health and vision.
Maintain the Health of Your Eyes
If you believe you have cataracts, it’s important to visit a professional ophthalmologist in Toledo, OH to avoid other types of vision problems. Some individuals with cataracts are negatively impacted by damaged retinas that are associated with diabetes. In addition, cataracts may be responsible for excess pressure in your eyes. If the high pressure in your eyes is not detected early, the condition can progress into glaucoma and other vision problems. Cataracts can also cause your eyes to become irritated. An effective way to prevent vision issues is to talk with our staff of optometrists and ophthalmologists about conducting a cataract surgery or treatment.
Protect Your Safety
Removing your cataracts will help keep you safe by reducing accidents such as falling, tripping, and car accidents. Your vision is essential for daily activities such as traveling, reading, riding a bike, running, communicating with friends, responding to emails, and driving. Protect your health and safety by talking with a doctor about the benefits of performing cataract surgery.
