Cataracts Overview Background

Union City Cataract Surgery at NeoVision Eye Center

By providing our patients with the latest technologies, including Multifocal and TORIC Intraocular Lenses, we are able to give our patients the best possible post-surgery vision available today. Most vision centers perform traditional cataract surgery, which leaves many patients still needing reading glasses weeks, months, and even years after cataract surgery. Our technology allows our patients to see both near and far, and without ever needing reading glasses again. The LENSX® Laser System is an advanced femtosecond cataract laser built specifically for refractive cataract surgery and is performed by Stanford-trained, board-certified Ophthalmologist Dr. Tandon.

Am I a candidate for Cataract Surgery?

Most people who are experiencing the effects of cataracts who can not have their vision improved by a simple change in prescription are candidates for cataract surgery. However, as in every surgery, your unique medical history and current health can influence your candidacy. Only an ophthalmologist can tell you for sure if cataract surgery is right for you.

Cataract Surgery Facts

  • Eye Cataract Icon


    Cataracts mostly occur due to aging, and the majority of patients will be 65 and older. Some people are born with cataracts; others develop them due to other health issues or traumatic injuries.

  • Eye Cataract Icon


    Cataracts generally develop over years, causing vision to get worse and worse as time goes on. This process can be very gradual, but varies for each individual and based on the cause of the cataracts.

  • Eye Cataract Icon


    A tiny cut is made on your eye that allows the surgeon to insert a tool that emulsifies the cataract and breaks up the damaged lens. The cataract is removed and replaced with a permanent, artificial intraocular lens implant. The body heals naturally; no stitches required.

  • Eye Cataract Icon


    The most common symptoms of cataracts include blurred vision, difficulty seeing in the dark, lights seeming too bright, glare, halos, yellowing of colors, dark spots, double vision, and a frequently changing prescription.

  • Eye Cataract Icon


    Unfortunately, there are no medications, eye drops, exercises, glasses, or contact lenses that can treat a cataract. Surgical removal of the cataract is the only way to restore your vision.
