Once a cataract has been diagnosed, the next most logical question is what should be done about it. In this section you can learn about the various technologies that are used in cataract care both surgical and non surgical options.

It is a fact, that cataracts are irreversible; neither with eye drops, pills, eye exercises, glasses, acupuncture, herbs, nor any other non surgical methods. Just as one cannot unboil an egg, one can’t reverse a cataract once it has formed.

Most patients diagnosed with a cataract are faced with a choice of either coping with the symptoms, while trying to address them with glasses or contacts, or undergoing the definitive treatment of cataract extraction.

Surgical Options:

The definitive treatment for cataracts is cataract extraction.

There are several widely accepted indications for having cataract surgery.

  1. Vision has become so inadequate that it interferes with everyday tasks, such as driving, watching TV, reading, hobbies, etc.
  2. The cataract is causing glaucoma and is threatening irreversible loss of vision
  3. The cataract is causing inflammation and is threatening irreversible loss of vision
  4. The cataract precludes the view of the back of the eye and is interfering with the treatment of a retinal problem such as diabetic retinopathy or macular degeneration.

Modern cataract extraction includes several options. These will depend on the general status of your eye as well as the skill set of the surgeon. Your candidacy for the various procedures is best discussed during a visit with your doctor.

At the Benjamin Eye institute we offer all the available options for cataract care, including:

  • Phacoemulsification
  • Premium Cataract Services
  • Non-Surgical Options
  • Cataract and Astigmatism Care
  • Advanced Lens Styles
  • Laser-Assisted Cataract Care

All premium cataract services come with a no questions asked refractive outcome guarantee, backed up by our own in-house laser vision correction platform.

Non Surgical Options:

If the cataract is causing decreased vision, glasses or contacts may be prescribed to attempt to improve the vision.

If the cataract is causing halos or glare, anti-reflective coating or polarized lenses could be tried to alleviate the symptoms.

    I have had dry eyes for a quite sometime and had seen several physicians and got eye drops etc but not until I have seen  Dr. Benjamin I found how serious problem that it was. I had the most thorough and individual attention by Dr. Benjamin. He explained to me my problem and treatment options available. Dr. Benjamin and His staff  are very caring and they spend as much time with you as needed and one feels taken care of. I was given state of the art treatment for my dry eyes and my eyes went from feeling tired , red , scratchy and itchy to brilliantly glowing clear. Office is very serene and staff is attentive, pleasant and smiling. Dr. Benjamin is very down to earth and explains thoroughly that one understands what alis them. I will definitely  keep coming back for all my eye issues.

    I wish I had come to Dr. Benjamin years ago!!!

    I have been hopping around between 3 eye doctors in the last few years complaining of severe eye pain, redness - so bad I haven't been able to wear contacts for a year. Every other doctor made a diagnosis in 2 minutes, prescribed a few things and sent me on my way. Nothing helped and the doctors kept saying my eyes looked fine despite my symptoms. Finally I saw Dr. Benjamin, and he listened to my concerns from top to bottom and did tests the other doctors never did! He made a brand new diagnosis which finally makes sense and fits my symptoms. He spent almost an hour with me which is unbelievable. I am so impressed with this place, even the front desk and other staff were so friendly. I'm so relieved and am looking forward to making a recovery with Dr. Benjamin and eventually getting LASIK.
