Vision Landscape for ages 55+: Vision continues to change. Near vision problems continue to worsen gradually. Cataracts become more dense and start to degrade vision. As this progresses, night vision, reading and distance vision begin to worsen.
Clear Lens Exchange : For patients over age 55 who desire lens-based Vision Correction and do not want to wait until Cataract surgery is covered by insurance, Clear Lens Exchange is an option. The surgery is the same as Cataract surgery, except a Clear lens (instead of a Cloudy Cataract) is removed. This surgery is never covered by insurance. It is considered a Refractive Surgery and involves the use of Specialty lens implants and/or Laser technology. For more options, see Refractive Cataract Surgery below.
Cataract surgery : Once cataracts negatively affect vision and impact your lifestyle, Cataract surgery is covered by insurance. Specialty lenses can be used to correction vision. We offer 2 flavors of Cataract surgery:
LASIK : This quick 2-step Laser procedure can be used to correct vision, even in patients over age 55. Typically, vision will be limited by Cataracts and Presbyopia. Visual recovery is extremely quick for most patients. For some, this can be a cost-effective way to correct vision until Cataract surgery is needed.
PRK : This quick 1-step Laser procedure can be used to correct vision, even in patients over age 55. Like LASIK, this can prove to be a cost-effective way to Correct vision until Cataract surgery is needed. PRK is ideal for patients over age 55 because it is less likely to cause Dry Eyes. Compared to LASIK, vision recovery is slower (weeks to months). For more information, click here.
Financing : We offer financing options and all you have to choose is either 0% interest or a very low monthly payment**. For more information, please call 972 395-5394 or email Cataract@LaserCareEye.com for more information.
