What are Cataracts?
Cataracts are a clouding of the natural lens of the eye. More than half of all Americans over the age of 65 have cataracts or have had cataract surgery. A cataract may lead to a gradual loss of vision.
In a normal eye, the clear, healthy lens focuses light and image on the retina. There, the image becomes nerve signals sent to the brain as sight. Only a clear lens focuses a sharp image on the retina. A cataract-clouded lens focuses a blurred image. Cataract surgery restores clear vision.
The most common symptoms of cataracts include:
- Blurred vision
- Difficulty seeing at night
- Seeing colors as faded
- Sensitivity to glare
- Seeing halos around lights
- Seeing double vision
- Frequent eyeglass prescription changes
Dr. Diamante utilizes the most advanced technologies in cataract surgery to achieve the best vision for his patients, including custom bladeless laser cataract surgery, ORA System with Verifeye+, and advanced technology lenses to correct astigmatism and for sharp vision at all ranges. These state-of-the art techniques involve no stitch, no injection, no needle, and no patch for the best comfort and outcome.
What causes Cataracts?
Most cataracts are age-related. Other types may develop from medication, trauma, or heritage. Cataracts cannot be prevented, but UV-protective sunglasses may slow down their progression. Recent research and access to new technology have greatly advanced cataract surgery treatment.
Advanced Custom Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery with ORA Technology
Unlike traditional cataract surgery involving hand-held metal blades, Dr. Diamante is the only surgeon in Rhode Island to use Lensx, a computer-guided laser, making the procedure safer, more precise, and with a quicker recovery. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis with typical healing time cut in half. Combined with the laser, ORA (Optiwave Refractive Analysis) technology optimizes replacement lens selection and alignment for the best visual outcome.
The Lensx laser’s computer-generate incisions are 10x more refined than manually-operated metal blades. ORA technology with Verifeye+ makes exact measurements in the eye during surgery, with the information streaming ON DEMAND to enhance surgical planning and execution.
If you have cataracts that are interfering with your vision and you are ready to correct them, now is the time. During surgery, Dr. Diamante can also correct many pre-existing vision problems, including near-sightedness, far-sightedness, reading difficulties, and astigmatism. Uniquely utilizing this advanced technology, Dr. Diamante offers the most highly perfected procedures in Rhode Island for cataract surgery, often making your vision better than it was before cataracts.
