Read on to learn more about cataracts and how Alliance Vision Institute can help.

What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts are the result of proteins in the eye’s natural lens breaking down, which usually begins in one’s late 40s to early 50s. The lens becomes cloudy, which results in blurry vision. The longer a cataract is left to develop, the more it distorts your eyesight, and the harder it can be to remove, which is why it’s important to have your eyes examined before a cataract interferes with your daily life.

Technically, medical insurance will not pay for cataract surgery if the cataracts are not visually significant.

Signs and Symptoms of  Cataracts

Signs, Symptoms, and Causes of Cataracts

Cataracts largely form due to age, but risk factors can include smoking, health conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes, certain medications, a history of eye disease or injury, and environmental factors.

Early detection is important, which makes it helpful to know some of the signs and symptoms of cataracts such as blurry, cloudy, or double vision; light sensitivity or trouble seeing in low light; and an increasingly more difficult time with daily tasks such as reading or driving.

If you’re 40 or older, have any of these risk factors, or notice symptoms similar to the above, you should consult a doctor.

Your Cataract Surgery

Eye surgeon Dr. Taylor Strange
Dr. Taylor Strange, is a board-certified ophthalmologist and an expert cataract surgeon here in the Fort Worth area. His depth of experience and diligent work to understand your needs contribute to you achieving the best vision for your lifestyle and vision goals.
At Alliance Vision Institute, we use the LENSAR® Laser System, designed and built specifically for laser cataract surgery. It’s more gentle, precise, and efficient than manual cataract surgery, and its advanced imaging capabilities help Dr. Taylor Strange plan your procedure down to the smallest detail.
Cataract surgery is a simple outpatient procedure, and fairly quick at only about 10 minutes per eye. During the procedure, Dr. Taylor Strange breaks up the cataract to remove it, and then painlessly inserts the new lens. Depending on your Vision Package, this will restore or even improve your eyesight. Patients often notice improvement within a day, with complete results within several weeks.

Vision Packages

At Alliance Vision Institute, we want you to be able to understand the outcome of your surgery long before you come in for your procedure. To that end, we offer Vision Packages that provide clear eyesight at different distances, and then tailor your procedure to your vision goals.

During a consultation, we’ll ask how you hope to live your life after cataract surgery. Which range of vision do you use the most — say, for reading, or maybe driving? What would you like to be clearer? Your answers will help us determine which Vision Package is best for you.
