As we age, cataracts, or clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye, can be a problem. The eye’s natural lens forms a white matter which blocks light rays from reaching the retina properly, and this leads to such problems as:
- Blurred vision
- Light sensitivity; glare in bright light
- Color distortion
- Halos around lights
A Simple Solution for a Debilitating Problem
Dr. Broussard uses the latest technique in performing cataract surgery.
To replace the eye’s natural lens, an intraocular lens (IOL) is implanted. Since the incision is so tiny, the eye remains tightly sealed by its natural outward pressure and usually no stitches are required.
Most patients notice visual improvement immediately after the procedure.
Although cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the world, it still requires excellent surgical skill for success. Dr. Broussard has years of experience performing cataract surgery for Monroe residents.
