Cataract Surgery and Treatments for Greensburg-Area Patients
Peters Eye Clinic Performs No-Stitch Cataract Surgery
Cataract surgery removes a lens from the eye and replaces it with an intraocular lens. Cataracts cause blurred vision and sometimes loss of vision, glare, and double vision or nearsightedness. They affect the center, sides, or back of the lens, causing various symptoms that you may not realize are signs of cataracts. The removal of a cataract is usually a relatively fast outpatient surgery, and requires minimal sedation.
If you believe that you are a candidate for cataract surgery, talk with the ophthalmologist of Peters Eye Clinic in Greensburg, PA. Dr. Peters will perform the appropriate exams to determine the best treatment route for you. Call us today at (724) 832-7800 for an appointment.
