Cataracts can make things look fuzzy or blurry. They are the cloudy areas in the eye’s lens. When you’re experiencing cataract issues, colors look faded, you may see double, and your eyes will be extra sensitive to light. If left untreated, cataracts can worsen and lead to blindness. To stop cataracts from progressing, consider going for regular eye exams, wear sunglasses, eat a balanced diet, check medicinal side effects, or even consider cataract surgery.
Dr. Murrel is an expert in cataract surgery. He has performed thousands of surgeries throughout his career. His experience can help you prevent your cataracts from getting worse. Before any cataract procedure, consultations with Dr. Murrel will give you an overview of how they will achieve the desired results.
Regular eye exams help diagnose and treat eye problems before getting worse or damaging your eyes. Dr. Murrel has invested in modern cataract surgery equipment and technology, which helps detect eye diseases that typical exams cannot.
In situations where eye complications can’t be treated, early detection gives the patient realistic expectations of post-operative vision. This allows you to be more aware of your condition and how to live positively through it.
Cataract surgery is now safer than ever before. Technology advancements have helped to increase the precision and safety of the procedure. Moreover, it gives a patient many options regarding their post-operative vision.
Dr. Murrel will perform the cataract surgery procedure by first removing the cloudy lens in your eye. This will then be replaced with a new intraocular lens (IOL). You can choose any IOL option, depending on your lifestyle needs. Dr. Murrel will also help you settle for the best IOL that suits you.
If surgery isn’t something you’ve considered, Dr. Murrel can give you expert advice on how to live a healthy lifestyle, especially if your eye complications are in their early stages.
