Cataracts and Lens Implant
What is a Cataract?
A cataract is the clouding of the lens of the eye caused by the natural aging process. This cloudy lens blocks the passage of light through the eye and causes distorted or blurred vision.
Sight Loss May Be Prevented
Although there is no way to prevent the development of cataracts, permanent loss of sight from the disease is largely preventable. With modern technology, cataracts may be removed and good vision restored. When loss of vision begins interfering with your daily activities, call The Center for Sight Conyers for a comprehensive eye examination.

Dr. Newman will perform a comprehensive eye exam to check the overall health of your eyes, evaluate whether you are a good surgical candidate and identify any risk factors you might have.
A refraction will also be performed to accurately determine the amount of nearsightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism you have prior to surgery. Additional measurements of your eyes will be taken to determine the curvature of your cornea and the length of your eye. These measurements are essential to help us select the proper power of the intraocular lens and the type of lens to be used to give you the best vision possible after surgery.
