A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye.  It can be described as looking through a frosty or fogged-up window.  People suffering from cataracts may experience sensitivity to light, blurred vision, double vision, the inability to see in dim light, vision loss or seeing halos around light.  When it interferes with usual activities, the cloudy lens can be replaced with a clear, artificial lens.  This is an outpatient procedure performed at The Meredyth Surgery Center.  If you are experiencing any of these symptoms call the practice at 229-432-7012 for an eye exam with one of our skilled physicians.

When it comes to cataract surgery you have an option of choosing the lens you receive and of choosing the technology that’s used to perform the procedure.  You have the choice between surgery performed by hand or with the assistance of laser technology.  Either type of procedure can be effective when performed by a skilled surgeon, but laser assisted-cataract surgery procedures are generally more precise. 

At Berg Eye Group we are dedicated to providing our patients with the best surgical outcomes.  We are one of a few specialized cataract centers in the Southeast to offer the LenSx laser system, which images your eye to plan a procedure that’s unique to you.  A bladeless, computer controlled laser then helps our skilled surgeons perform your surgery with exacting, individualized precision not attainable with traditional surgical methods.
