Top Eugene OR Vision Institute Offers Macular Degeneration/Cataract Treatments Cataract surgery used to be prohibitively expensive - and even risky. No longer. Not only can it yield wondrous results, safely, but there may also be additional benefits. Pacific ClearVision Institute now provides cataract surgery for patients suffering from cloudy vision, sensitivity to light, reading difficulties, and a gradual loss of night vision. Worldwide, cataracts account for half the cases of blindness. It affects almost one out of every six Americans over the age of 40, and that number increases with each decade thereafter. Significantly, Cataract surgery patients have a 40% reduced mortality risk: improved vision enables people to better recognize and avoid threats, such as oncoming vehicles. Cataracts can be caused by a variety of medical conditions, including diabetes, eye injury, drugs such as steroids, protracted exposure to sunlight, and previous eye surgery. The resulting impact on a person's quality of life leads many people to consider surgery. The clinic will remove your clouded lens by painless microsurgery, and replace it with a trifocal lens designed to give clear, brilliant vision. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. PCVI’s treatment allows for full activity immediately following the surgery. Go to https://pcvi.com/treatments- eugene/cataract for more information.
