Binghamton Eye Doctor Serving Elmira, Corning, Ithaca, Syracuse, Cortland, & Oneonta, NY
As people age, cataracts (clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye) become an increasingly common occurrence. Symptoms of cataracts include blurred vision, light sensitivity, double vision in one eye, poor night vision, color distortion, and glaring. Dr. Sambursky uses modern, state-of-the-art cataract care to help his vision correction patients regain clear vision.
Using only a topical anesthetic to numb the eye, Dr. Sambursky creates a small incision and uses high-energy sound waves to break the cataract into microscopic particles, which are then removed from the eye. To compensate for the removal of the eye’s natural lens, an intra-ocular lens (IOL) is implanted into the eye. After using this special small incision, the eye remains tightly sealed by the natural outward pressure within your eye and no stitches are usually required.
The cataract removal technique performed by Dr. Sambursky is often preferred to traditional methods because vision correction patients are very comfortable during and after the vision correction procedure. Because this new technique uses eye drops to numb the eye, the need for an anesthetic shot, stitches, or a post-surgery patch is eliminated. Another advantage is that most vision correction patients notice a rapid visual improvement with this technique. If you or someone you know has signs of cataracts, schedule a cataract screening today.
