Cataract Signs and Symptoms

A cataract is a clouding of the lens. The condition diminishes vision and, if untreated, eventually causes blindness. Cataracts cause blurred vision, poor night vision, double vision, glare from bright lights, and difficulty in distinguishing colors and contrast changes

Cataracts are common among people aged 55 and older in Michigan. Besides advancing age, there are no specific causes of cataracts. Contributing factors are diabetes, hypertension, obesity, prolonged use of corticosteroids, exposure to UV radiation, and previous eye injuries or inflammation. Stronger lighting and eyeglasses can help deal with cataracts, but surgery is eventually required. Fortunately, cataract surgery is generally a safe, effective procedure

Patients no longer need to pay for expensive hospital visits. We have an on-site outpatient facility and the procedure only takes about 30 minutes. The recovery is quick, painless, and comfortable.

Transportation can be arranged upon request, and financing options are available. We’ve come so far since your father or grandfather had to wear those thick and omnipresent glasses after cataract surgery. Today, cataract surgery with the implanting of intraocular lenses is one of the safest procedures in the world.

All Laser Cataract Surgery in Michigan

A Femtosecond Laser treatment is performed to soften cataracts and break it into small pieces, allowing for safe, quick, and effective removal of the natural lens. Then, an artificial lens is implanted to replace the natural lens.

Multifocal Lens Implants

Multifocal Lenses are a remarkable improvement over previous lens technologies

Formerly, artificial lenses corrected only distance vision, leaving cataract patients with a need for reading glasses for near vision assistance. Multifocal Lens Implants (MLI’s) replace your natural lenses and restore distance and reading vision.

Multifocal Lens Implant surgery is painless. Anesthetic drops numb the eye and an IV delivers medication to keep you relaxed. In most cases, both eyes are done on the same day. In some cases, based upon medical history and other factors, the second eye is done a week after the first eye. Dr. Yaldo will recommend the right course of treatment for you.

What are Secondary Cataracts?

A “secondary” cataract appears as a cloudy membrane after surgery. It may develop months to years after you’ve had original cataract surgery to remove your cataract and add an intraocular lens (IOL) to replace your natural lens. Michigan cataract surgeon, Dr. Yaldo treats secondary cataracts regularly and can help you if your cataracts have returned.

Secondary Cataracts can also be called ‘After Cataracts’

To place the IOL during your original surgery, an incision was made in the capsular bag surrounding your eye’s lens. Although the incision heals quickly, it is not uncommon for the capsule to produce visible cells which can blur and cloud vision. Patients often mistakenly believe their cataracts have come back, when in fact, they’re simply seeing this secondary cataract. Approximately 40% of cataract surgery patients experience this post-operative condition.

Treating Secondary Cataracts in Michigan

To remove a secondary cataract, a YAG laser capsulotomy is performed. The YAG laser uses quick pulses of cold laser energy to clear up the cloudy membranes of the secondary cataract without affecting your intraocular lens. Once the cloudy membranes are cleared away, more light is allowed to reach your retina, and your vision will improve.

This procedure is done at Yaldo Eye Center’s on-site outpatient surgical facility, a premium Michigan cataract center in the Greater Detroit area.
