Cataract Surgery in Dallas

Board-Certified Eye Doctors with Decades of Experience

Since 1961, thousands of patients have chosen our team of highly skilled eye doctors and surgeons for their cataract removal surgeries. Key-Whitman Eye Center offers the latest advances in cataract technology, like femtosecond laser cataract surgery. No matter which option you choose, cataract surgery is a proven procedure that has a long history of being extremely safe and effective.

Everyone gets cataracts at some point in their lives, because it is a natural part of aging. In the United States, approximately 22 million people over the age of 40 experience cataracts. Left untreated, cataracts can rob you of your independence and limit your quality of life. It’s important to get checked for cataracts because it is the leading cause of blindness among adults.

What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts occur when the natural crystalline lens or focusing lens behind the pupil begins to become cloudy and dense, which stops light from entering the retina. You may begin to notice in your 40s or 50s that your vision is just not as clear as it used to be. However, because this progression happens so gradually, many people don’t realize how much vision they are losing until daily activities are affected, like using the computer or driving at night. Only after the procedure do patients realize that they had been missing out on seeing vivid colors and often our patients wish they had done the procedure sooner.

What Causes Cataracts?

The most common cause of cataracts is aging, but other causes can be:

  • Trauma
  • Medications such as steroids
  • Systemic diseases like diabetes
  • Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light
  • Smoking

Cataract Symptoms

Symptoms of cataracts, even with the best glasses, can include:

  • Blurred or distorted vision
  • Loss of Clarity and Brightness of Colors
  • Loss of Depth Perception
  • Sensitivity to Light – Excessive Glare and Halos Around Lights Especially at Night

If you are having trouble completing everyday tasks due to vision problems, you may have a cataract. Below are a few examples:

  • Driving at night
  • Watching movies / or TV
  • Reading your computer screen or smart phone messages
  • Seeing traffic lights, freeway exists, highway signs or street curbs
  • Completing projects such as writing, sewing, crossword puzzles, sports, reading, and car repair
  • Identifying faces
  • Seeing true vivid colors

How Are Cataracts Treated?

Cataracts are treated by removing the cloudy lens through no-stitch outpatient surgery. Your Key-Whitman Eye Center surgeon will gently fragment or emulsify the cataract and replace it with a lens implant. If you choose our advanced technology lenses, you can dramatically decrease your dependence on glasses or contacts. Although we cannot guarantee freedom from glasses, if you choose one of our Custom High Technology lenses, you can maximize freedom from glasses or contacts at all distances for most situations.

How Much Does Cataract Surgery Cost?

Prices may vary, so please contact our office and we can go over the best lens options with you. We accept all types of vision insurance.
