Cataract Surgery in Vero Beach

Cataracts symptoms

Not all cataracts impair vision or affect daily living. When they do, common symptoms include:

  • Cloudy, fuzzy, foggy, or filmy vision
  • Glare from lamps or sun, which may be severe
  • Difficulty driving at night due to glare from headlights
  • Frequent changes in eyeglass prescription
  • Double vision
  • Difficulty performing daily activities because of vision problems

Who Do Cataracts Affect?

Aging and exposure to ultraviolet radiation can cause cataracts. People may also experience cataracts after an eye injury, as a result of eye disease, after the use of certain medications, or as a result of medical conditions such as diabetes.

Genetics may be another risk factor for developing cataracts. People with a family history are more likely to develop them. The color of your eye may also contribute to the development of cataracts. People with darker-colored irises appear to have an increased risk of developing them.

How to Avoid Cataracts

  • Have your vision checked regularly for early detection.

  • Don't smoke.
  • Wear protective eye gear, when active, to avoid eye trauma.

Cataracts Treatment

If vision problems caused by cataracts are interfering with a person's quality of life, cataract surgery is the only treatment option. Cataract surgery is very common and currently has the highest success rate of any surgical procedure in the United States. During the procedure, the clouded natural lens of the eye is replaced with a new, clear lens (intraocular lens) that has a prescription power specifically measured for the individual patient.

We are proud to be the first and only practice on the Treasure Coast to offer the most advanced technology available for patients with cataracts: gentle, bladeless, computer-guided cataract removal. Our advanced laser system is designed to deliver the best visual results with unsurpassed precision and accuracy. Click here to learn more.

Intraocular Lens

Some lenses best correct at distance, some at near, some at both distance and near, and some for astigmatism. For these reasons, no one lens is right for every patient. Dr. Minotty and Dr. Tate counsel each patient on the best approach for their patients' needs and lifestyle.
