According to a comprehensive report conducted by National Institute:
Almost 4 million cataract surgeries performed each year, and that number is expected to increase.1
By age 80, more than half of all Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery.2
Cataracts do not just impact seniors. In 2016 it is estimated that nearly one in four cataract surgeries will be performed on people younger than 65.1 Many people who have cataracts experience other problems with their vision, such as presbyopia and astigmatism, which the Symfony lenses also address. Presbyopia, which affects most people over age 40, means people have lost the ability to focus on objects up close and often require glasses to perform near visual tasks. Astigmatism is when the cornea is misshapen, which causes blurry or distorted vision.
Cataract Surgery is FDA Approved for Astigmatism
Dr. Stan Saulny, an ophthalmologist in the San Fernando Valley entrusted Dr. Brad Elkins for his cataract surgery. He shares his satisfaction with the results and the treatment he received from Dr. Elkins.
Dr. Elkins is known as a leader of Cataract Surgery, has helped 1000s of patients improve their vision with the procedure, especially those who have difficulty focusing on objects at near distances because of presbyopia. Cataract Surgery is the right option for patients who live active lifestyles and have the desire to see clearly at all distances without the cumbersome glasses. It truly can provide you the freedom to take part and enjoy an active lifestyle.
