Don't Let Cataracts Steal Your Color

What Are Cataracts?

Showing What it's Like to See With a Cataract vs Healthy Vision
A cataract is when the natural lens inside the eye becomes discolored and clouded, resulting in hazy or blurred vision at all distances. Cataracts may also result in double vision, trouble seeing well at night or in dim light, or seeing bright colors as faded or yellowish.
Aging is the most common risk factor for cataracts. By age 75, approximately 50% of Americans have cataracts. Other risk factors for cataracts include:
More than three million cataract procedures are performed each year, making it the most common surgery performed in the United States.

Cataract Procedure

At the time of cataract surgery, a small incision is made in the eye and the cloudy lens is removed. It is replaced with a clear, artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL). The new lens is folded and inserted through the same incision.
Grand Rapids Ophthalmology offers traditional IOLs and advanced technology implants.

Cataract Procedure Overview

Intraocular Lens Options

Thanks to modern advancements, there’s never been a better time to have cataract surgery! Grand Rapids Ophthalmology offers traditional IOLs and advanced technology IOLs (ATIOLs) that allow you to eliminate cataracts as well as reduce your dependence on glasses and contacts. The best lens for you depends on many factors, including your lifestyle and specific vision needs.
Traditional IOLs improve vision but may require the need for glasses to see well close up and/or at a distance after surgery. Traditional cataract surgery is accepted by most insurance plans.
Advanced technology IOLs (ATIOLs) optimize near and distance vision and correct astigmatism. ATIOLs reduce your dependency on glasses or bifocals to see at near, far, and intermediate distances.
