Why Laser Technology Matters

Why Laser Technology Matters

Traditional cataract surgery has been performed for years by making a micro incision at or near the cornea and gently removing the cloudy lens using high-energy sound waves. While this method is still quite effective, Rochester Eye & Laser Center is proud to offer another method -- the most advanced technology for cataract surgery using lasers.

Know the Symptoms

Do You Have Cataracts?

As we age, gradual changes impact eyesight. Sharp images may become blurred, and night vision is difficult. Symptoms may become more noticeable over time, and the glasses or contacts you rely on don’t seem to help:

  • Blurred or cloudy vision
 
  • Poor night vision
  • Colors may appear faded or dull
 
  • Double or multiple vision in one eye
  • Lamps such as headlights or streetlights may have a glare or halos; sunlight or fluorescent lights may appear too bright
 
  • Frequent prescription changes for glasses or contacts

These symptoms may indicate other eye problems. If you have any of them, make an appointment for a complete eye examination.
