Advanced Cataract Surgery

Dr Manjoney is a leading ophthalmologist in CT offering advanced cataract surgery methods like Toric IOL and ReStor.

Understanding the cataracts

Cataracts are natural vision obstacles that develop due to the accumulation of proteins over the lens. The yellowing of the eye is the usual symptom of the condition. With the protein layer blockage, the reflected light entering the eye cannot focus accurately on the retina, resulting in blurred images. These can develop in one or both eyes. However, if they appear in one eye, they would not spread to the other eye in a contagious manner!

Cataract formation is a natural ageing process affecting many. Patients also complain of yellowish vision problems. Diet and laser treatments are ineffective for the cataracts. If you are suffering from this condition, consult with Dr Manjoney to set a convenient surgery date, following an evaluation of your eye condition.

In most people, the cataracts develop as a part of the natural ageing process. Many patients also have a family history of cataract development. Medical issues like eye injuries, diabetes, medication, exposure to radiation, and side effects of a previous eye surgery are among the common reasons that lead to the formation of cataracts. Usually, the cataract develops after fifty years of age.

Dr Manjoney would evaluate the various symptoms to diagnose your eye condition. The signs of cataract formation include yellowish vision, light sensitivity, inadequate night vision, and double vision in a single eye. The doctor would employ a series of specialized tests to identify the cataract status. The tests include,

  1. The visual acuity test to identify the sight range
  2. The dilated eye test for close examination
  3. The tonometry test measuring the natural pressure in the eyes

Primary cataract treatment may not include surgery. The usual solutions in this stage are using anti-glare sunglasses or reading in bright lights. However, these remedial measures do not stop the growth of cataract. When it is in an advanced stage, the surgery is the sole option.

The Multifocal Cataract Surgery

Dr Delia Manjoney has been conducting numerous cataract operations for the last 24 years. She is available at the specialized ophthalmology clinic with state of the art facilities for conducting the surgery. The staff at the clinic would examine your eye condition closely to suggest the most suitable treatment in your scenario. The clinic also offers IOL (Intraocular) lens surgeries. The doctor always recommends patients to take care of their eyes by periodic checkups. Maintaining a documented medical record is crucial for ensuring effective eye care.

The cataract surgery is highly prevalent in the US with over 2 million patients going through the procedure every year. The doctor conducts this minimally invasive surgery in an outpatient clinic under topical or local anesthesia. The clinic rounds of the procedure with effective pre-operation, post-operation, and follow up care. In case, both eyes have cataract conditions, the doctor would conduct separate operations in each eye, maintaining a gap of 2-8 weeks. Dr Manjoney focuses on providing the treatment only after the patient is comfortable with her caring attitude. Although these are natural formations of the ageing process, yet you can have effective treatments to restore your vision.

Get in touch for a professional evaluation of your eye condition from highly experienced staffs. The treatment approach, based on personal care, inspires confidence in the patients to go ahead with the surgery.

Premium IOL (intra ocular lens) implants

The facility also offers premium IOL surgeries. These lenses can be traditional or premium. The traditional monofocal IOLs are suitable only for treating a singular problem. So, patients have to choose from the rectification of near, intermediate, or far vision. Patients may also have to wear glasses despite the operation. However, the premium intraocular lenses allow patients with an effective solution for several eye conditions like cataracts, farsightedness, nearsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia.

You need to get in touch with the clinic for an evaluation of your eye condition. Get in touch now for the best professional consultation with a doctor commanding over two decades of experience in cataract operations.

Types of IOLs

ReStor 3.0 Lens: This multifocal FDA approved lens improves the vision range at a variety of distances. The operation improved both reading vision and distance vision. The lens allows cataract replacements with an add power of +3.0 diopters, significantly improving the intermediate, near, and distance vision.

Alcon Toric: The Toric premium intraocular lens is perfect for patients struggling with astigmatism and cataract conditions. In fact, this is the exclusive solution for patients with astigmatism. The aspheric design of the lens improves distant vision and mitigates corneal astigmatism. The light yellow hue of the lens would filter the blue light thereby protecting the retina. However, patients with this implant may still need to wear glasses. The doctor is the best person to tell you whether you can avoid the glasses following the surgery.

Tecnis IOL: The FDA approved this IOL in 2002. It also received another approval as a driving aid in 2004. The development of the TECNIS lens happened through wavefront analysis of the cornea. It also has an aspheric surface significantly reducing the spherical aberrations. It also provides a safe and clear vision experience to cataract patients.

Dr Manjoney is proficient in providing all these above options according to patient suitability. Her gentle professional care earns many accolades from the patients. You can get in touch with the reputed CT ophthalmologist at (203) 576-6500.
