Cataract Surgery in Warwick and Providence, Rhode Island

WHAT ARE CATARACTS?

Cataract VisionA cataract is a cloudy lens in your eye. When you were born your lens was flexible and transparent. This flexibility lets you focus from far to near and back again, the transparency let you see clearly. Every day of your life the lens changed a little bit, first losing its flexibility, and later losing its clarity.

At about age 40 you lost the ability to focus from far to near and back again because your lens lost its flexibility. This condition, called Presbyopia is normal and happens to everybody. It is the first sign of age affecting your lens’s function.

Years later your lens began to lose its transparency. It became cloudy and you developed difficulty seeing through it. That’s when we call your lens a Cataract. Cataracts begin as a very slight clouding that you might not even notice. Some cataract progress quickly; others develop slowly.

The Greater New Bedford Surgical and Laser Center

The Greater New Bedford Surgical and Laser Center was opened in 1986 with the express purpose of rendering high quality, state of the art eye surgery to patients of all ages, especially those with cataracts, glaucoma, or cornea disease. The Center is designed specifically with the needs of the patient in mind. The entire process from initial examination to final outcome is conducted in a pleasant comfortable environment.

After a patient decides to have surgery, he or she is assigned his or her own Surgical Counselor who is available to answer questions and provide assistance. These individuals are specially trained to assist the patient throughout the entire surgical experience, including follow up care for as long as necessary. Patients are encouraged to contact their counselor for any questions, no matter how simple or complex.
