3 Learn more about your vision understanding your options Changes in Your Vision While the cataract procedure is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the U.S., there is often confusion about what causes cataracts, how they affect vision, and how they can be corrected. The Truth About Cataract Surgery Approximately 20 million Americans age 40 and older have cataracts. Cataract Surgery Options: Traditional or SeeClear Laser With modern advancements in technology, Chokshi Vision Center offers several options to renew your vision and regain control of your lifestyle. Today s cataract surgery has the potential to not only eliminate your cataracts with the safety and precision of a laser, but also allow you to see near, far and everything in between with little to no dependence on glasses and contacts! What is a Cataract? A common misconception is that a cataract is a film that forms over the eye. In reality, cataracts occur inside the eye with a gradual clouding of your eye s clear natural lens. Over time, this causes your vision to be cloudy, blurry, and less sharp. Healthy Eye Eye With Cataract Cornea Lens Cataract Retina More than half of all Americans develop cataracts by age 80. Cataract surgery is the most frequently performed surgical procedure in the U.S. Cataract surgery is usually covered by medical insurance, including Medicare. Cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure under topical anesthesia. Cataract surgery is safe and effective when performed by an experienced surgeon. What causes cataracts? Cataracts usually develop as part of the natural aging process, but there are other factors that can cause cataracts to form: Genetics Eye injuries Diseases (such as glaucoma or diabetes) Smoking Overexposure to sun s rays Some medications Traditional Cataract Surgery Traditional cataract surgery is a method that has been used for many years to remove cataracts. Many of the surgical steps are performed by hand, with blade incisions, astigmatism is not treated and recovery time tends to be longer. Glasses may likely be required for optimal vision after your procedure. This safe and effective outpatient procedure is performed in our Southpoint Surgery Center. SeeClear Laser Cataract Surgery Chokshi Vision Center is pleased to offer state-of-the-art SeeClear Laser Cataract Surgery using advanced LenSx technology. This outpatient procedure is performed in our Southpoint Surgery Center and offers many benefits over traditional cataract surgery: Laser Assisted Enhanced Precision Faster Recovery Time Astigmatism Correction Options for Advanced Lifestyle Lens Customized Pre-Operative Imaging The LenSx Laser represents a major breakthrough in the way cataract surgery is performed. The first femtosecond laser approved in the U.S. for cataract surgery, LenSx brings laser precision, offering more accuracy and better results. Dr. Chokshi was one of the first surgeons in Jacksonville to offer SeeClear Laser Cataract Surgery with the LenSx technology. the joy of effortless vision My experience was top notch from the receptionist through post surgery.

Astigmatism is a common condition that is often present along with nearsightedness or farsightedness. Astigmatism occurs when the cornea is irregularly shaped, more like a football than a basketball, and causes light to focus on more than one point on the retina. This results in blurred vision at all ranges, from distance to near. Does my Astigmatism Need to Be Corrected? While most patients have some degree of astigmatism, a minor degree of astigmatism may require no correction for adequate vision. Your eyes will be evaluated during your examination and Dr. Chokshi and his team will let you know if you would benefit from astigmatism correction. You ll be glad to know that at Chokshi Vision Center, there are several options available for safely and effectively correcting astigmatism while performing your cataract procedure. With SeeClear Laser Cataract Surgery, Dr. Chokshi can either correct your astigmatism using a Toric lens implant or with the LenSx laser. Divide lens with laser efficiency & flexibility Less energy is used to remove the cataract, causing less postoperative inflammation and faster recovery Single Focus Lens Insertion Good distance vision, depending on amount of uncorrected astigmatism Traditional method Blade incisions Longer recovery Glasses still needed Lifestyle Lens Insertion After cataract surgery without Good distance vision Good close up vision Good intermediate vision Increased precision Faster recovery time Blade free incisions Lifestyle lens options May not need glasses or contacts Depending on the amount of astigmatism, traditional cataract surgery required a metal blade for correction.

6 frequently Asked questions FAQs Will I need to have cataract surgery again? The results are permanent, offering you a lifetime of good vision. However, some patients may experience a clouding of the tissue surrounding the IOL. Should this occur, a laser may be used in an outpatient procedure to painlessly remove the cloudiness and restore clear vision. What are symptoms of cataracts? Cataracts typically develop slowly and painlessly over time in fact, in the early stages, symptoms may be so mild that you may not even realize your vision is changing. However, as the cataracts become more dense, you will eventually experience one or more of the following symptoms: What is recovery time like? Painless blurring of vision Sensitivity to glare and light Double vision in one eye Poor night vision Fading or yellowing of colors Frequent changes in glasses or contact lens prescriptions You will return home and relax for the remainder of the day after your procedure. Most patients report improvement in their vision as soon as the next day you may even watch TV and read at this time.you should be able to resume other normal activities, such as driving and working, within two or three days. It is important to follow Dr. Chokshi s instructions, use medications prescribed and keep all follow up visits. What are my options with cataracts? Are both eyes done at the same time? In some cases, new glasses may temporarily improve vision, but there are no medications or exercises that will help cataracts disappear. If cataracts are interfering with your vision, surgery is the answer. With Dr. Chokshi, cataract surgery is a safe and effective way to restore your clear vision and enjoy life fully once again. When should I have cataract surgery? The time for surgery is when cataracts are causing loss of vision which affects your ability to perform activities of daily living in your accustomed manner. With modern advancements in cataract surgery, developing cataracts no longer means having to suffer with blurry vision. The first step in detecting cataracts and determining your need for surgery is through a comprehensive consultation with Chokshi Vision Center. What happens during cataract surgery? During this outpatient procedure performed in our stateof-the-art Southpoint Surgery Center, topical anesthesia is used, ensuring that you will be relaxed and comfortable as Dr. Chokshi performs your procedure. Recovery is amazingly fast - with the cataract removed, you re on your way to enjoying clearer, more youthful vision. Which cataract surgery option is best for me? While the characteristics of your eyes certainly play a critical role in lens selection, it s just as important to consider your lifestyle, and the role vision plays in the activities you enjoy. During your evaluation your surgeon will take the time to discuss your options and help you select the lens that will change the way you see the world! Southpoint surgery center If you re suffering from blurry, cloudy, dull vision that just isn t what it used to be, there s no need to wait any longer! It s time to open the door to a bright, clear world and restore your vision and your lifestyle. Take the Next Step Call us today at (904) and schedule your cataract evaluation to determine if you are a candidate. We typically perform cataract surgery on one eye and then on the second eye two weeks later. While risks and complications with modern cataract surgery are extremely rare, they will be discussed in detail at the time of your cataract evaluation. Financing Medicare and most insurances will pay for most of the cost of your cataract surgery when using a standard IOL. If you choose laser cataract surgery with astigmatism correction and/ or a lifestyle lens, you will typically pay for the additional cost out of pocket. Considering the visual benefits and freedom that comes with it, most patients feel the additional investment is worth it.we also offer a variety of financing options to make your choice easier and more affordable. the choice for cataracts is clear One of few practices in Jacksonville to offer LenSx Laser Cataract Technology American Health Care Association Laser Cataract surgery performed on site in state-of-the art surgical facility Experience, dedication and personal patient care
