Cataract formation is a natural process which occurs slowly over time. The lens behind the pupil gradually becomes cloudy which affects how light is focused onto the retina, causing glare and blurry vision. Cataract surgery is a technologically advanced procedure in which the lens is removed through a small, no stitch incision, and is replaced with a crystal clear acrylic lens that allows light to be clearly and precisely focused on the retina.
Advancements in lens technology and refractive surgery allow Dr. Bergstrom to achieve unprecedented results with cataract surgery. Now it is possible to achieve clear vision for both distance and reading without glasses. Premium multifocal and accommodative lenses offer the potential for reduced dependence and frequently complete independence from glasses.
