Washington, DC Eye Surgeons Provide Relief From Cataracts

Dr. Clinch and Dr. Kang Educate Patients on What to Expect From Cataract Surgery

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/13 -- In addition to LASIK, Dr. Thomas Clinch and Dr. Paul Kang also perform cataract surgery as a staple of their practice. At Eye Doctors of Washington, patients often ask questions regarding their candidacy for cataract surgery. In order to allow patients to make informed decisions and have realistic expectations, Drs. Clinch and Kang work to educate prospective patients on cataract surgery in preoperative consultations. They were the first physicians in the region to perform Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery (LenSx®) and have incorporated this technology into the education process of the procedure.

Many prospective cataract surgery patients worry that they may be too old for the procedure. However, with new technological advances in the field, Drs. Clinch and Kang say almost all patients now meet the criteria for these outpatient surgeries. At their Washington, DC ophthalmology practice, they have operated on patients over the age of 100.

Steps toward cataract surgery:

  • Before a patient undergoes cataract surgery, an overall evaluation of the patient's health and a routine physical test are required.
  • Since each patient's vision is different, a measurement using an A-Scan test must be taken to determine the length of the eye.
  • Some patients may need glasses after undergoing cataract surgery, and many of those patients opt to couple cataract surgery with intraocular lens implants. These implants allow patients to experience clear vision at distance and near ranges.

Cataract surgery is necessary in order to remove a cataract that has begun to form. However, Drs. Clinch and Kang note that a daily intake of Vitamin C may slow the progression of cataracts. At Eye Doctors of Washington, they recommend that patients take 100 units of Vitamin C -- a dosage that is already present in most daily multi-vitamin supplements. If a patient is considering cataract surgery, the Washington, DC eye surgeons are happy to hold consultations to discuss a tailored treatment plan.
