POUGHKEEPSIE, NY, July 30, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Cataract Surgeons from Seeta Eye Centers commented on the increase in the prevalence of cataracts among baby boomers, their greater need for brief recovery periods and visual performance after cataract surgery and how bladeless laser cataract surgery with advanced technology lens implants can help meet their cataract surgery needs.
"What is different than what we might have observed with cataract patients in their late 60's or 70's is that many more baby boomers with a cataract are still actively employed and need to continue to do so given the economy. They want and need as brief, comfortable and convenient a recovery from their cataract surgery and lens implant procedure as is possible. Sometimes it seems almost urgent as they want to get back to their jobs as quickly as possible," explained Satish Modi, M.D. "Our experience with bladeless laser cataract surgery is that the precision we deliver with the surgeon directed computer controlled laser cataract procedure coupled with the lower energy profile when we are actually operating inside the eye make for quick visual and healing recovery-patients routinely comment on their surprise," explained Dr. Modi.
Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness worldwide. About 24 million Americans age 40 and older have cataracts and more than half of all Americans develop cataracts by age 80. A cataract is a clouding of the crystalline lens of the eye preventing light rays from passing through it easily. Symptoms of cataracts may include a clouding or blurring of vision, sensitivity to light and glare, double vision or shadowing in one eye, fading or yellowing of colors and poor night vision, sometimes with haloes around lights.
Cataract Surgeon Andreas Wolter, M.D. offered, "My experience with baby boomers with cataracts is that they really don't want the inconvenience of wearing glasses after cataract surgery. When we perform laser cataract surgery in conjunction with using advanced technology lens implants-such as toric lens implants to correct astigmatism or even multifocal lens implants to correct the near vision focusing problems so patients can avoid bifocals or reading glasses they are particularly grateful for the ability to quickly and comfortably return to the lifestyle, occupation and activities they desire."
