Gain Clearer Sight After Cataract Surgery in San Antonio
From the infamous River Walk — an outdoor walkway lined with bars, shops and restaurants that runs along the banks of the San Antonio River — to the San Antonio Museum of Art to, of course, the famous historical site of the Alamo, San Antonio has many things to experience. It would be a shame to have cataracts clouding your vision in this beautiful city with its many visual delights. Cataracts occur when the natural lens of the eye is clouded, causing blurred or obstructed vision. The many talented cataract surgeons that can be found in this historical city provide quick and painless surgical procedures to remove and replace cataracts with clear artificial lenses. Cataract surgery patients also have the option of an intraocular lens (IOL) implant, which corrects near or distance vision (and sometimes both), so that the patient has clearer vision than before cataracts! Peruse this directory of San Antonio cataract surgeons to find out more about the surgical and implant lens options they offer.
Choices of IOLs in San Antonio and the Surrounding Area
New types of IOLs are now available that allow many patients to see clearly immediately (within a day or two) after surgery. Premium IOLs, such as Crystalens, ReStor, Tecnis and Symfony, not only provide for excellent distance vision, but also can allow patients to see up close without glasses. These different types of lenses function a little differently. Crystalens is called an accommodating IOL, since the lens moves slightly in the eye in order to focus, simulating the way the lens moves in an eye that has no refractive errors. ReStor, Symfony and Tecnis are multifocal lenses that simultaneously provide focusing power for both near and distance vision. To decide which one would be best for your needs, consult with one of the board-certified ophthalmologists listed here, who specialize in cataract surgery. They can help you determine whether you are a candidate for surgery and which type of IOL is best to fit your lifestyle.
Visitor’s Information for San Antonio Cataract Surgery Patients
Because cataract surgery results in such a short recovery time, patients can spend the rest of their visit to San Antonio visiting some of the many attractions offered by this vibrant, culture-rich city. When visiting San Antonio for cataract surgery, you may wish to explore the city’s history by visiting the Institute of Texan Cultures located in downtown San Antonio. The museum features permanent exhibits of 26 different ethnic and cultural groups, along with numerous touring exhibits, publications and a library. It is also the site of the annual Texas Folklife Festival, a celebration of the many ethnicities that make up the population of Texas. In addition to its cultural offerings, San Antonio is also home to many prestigious universities, including the University of Texas at San Antonio, Texas A&M University, St. Mary’s University, the University of the Incarnate Word and the Our Lady of the Lake University.
