What Are Cataracts?

A cataract is a clouding of the lens within your eye. When clouding occurs, it makes it very difficult to see the world around you as the light is obstructed on its route to the retina. Cataracts can be caused by a number of things, but typically develop as we age. Cataracts are a progressive condition, meaning that once the eye’s natural lens begins to cloud, the condition will continue to worsen. Once cataracts become more mature, they typically result in blurred or clouded vision and light sensitivity. This can make activities like reading and driving at night very difficult.

Do My Cataracts Require Treatment?

If you have been diagnosed with cataracts in the past, and are noticing that you are not able to see as clearly even with your glasses or contacts, it may be time to discuss cataract surgery with the cataract surgeons at Whitsett Vision Group.

At Whitsett Vision Group, we are committed to providing our patients the latest breakthroughs in technology, allowing them the opportunity to have the clearest vision possible after surgery. The Tecnis Synergy lens is a next-generation presbyopia-correcting intraocular lens, offering cataract patients the widest range of continuous vision, and best near vision among leading intraocular lenses.

The Tecnis Synergy lens was designed to offer patients with cataracts the ability to reduce or even eliminate the need for glasses after cataract surgery, specifically for near vision. In post-operative surveys, 9 out of 10 patients that had the Synergy lens implanted reported that they were no longer dependent on glasses after their cataract surgery.
