Don't Let Cataracts Steal Your Color

What are Cataracts?

Showing What it's Like to See With a Cataract vs Healthy Vision
A cataract is a clouding of the eye's natural lens. This lens, located behind the iris, works like the lens of a camera. It focuses light images on the retina, which sends images to the brain.
Vision with cataracts has been described as seeing life through an old, cloudy film. A cataract can be the reason sharp objects become blurred, bright colors become dull, or seeing at night is more difficult. It may also be why reading glasses or bifocals are used to help you no longer seem to be effective.
Eye injury, certain diseases, or even some medications can cause clouding, but the majority of cataracts are simply the result of the natural aging process. Cataract surgery restores your vision and, in many ways, significantly improves your quality of life.

Is Cataract Surgery Right for Me?

If you experience signs or symptoms of cataracts, take our interactive self-test to see if you are a candidate for cataract surgery then schedule an eye exam. The specialists at Shoreline Vision will review the options and help you choose the best solution for your unique eyes.

Cataract Procedure

Your doctor will create a tiny incision with the laser to break up the cataract and gently remove it from the eye. After removing the natural lens and cataract, an artificial lens (intraocular lens) will then be put into place. The intraocular lens takes over the job of the natural lens and allows you to see clearly.

Intraocular Lens Options

The best way to treat a cataract is with surgery that removes the old, clouded lens and replacing it with a new, artificial lens. This lens will restore your vision and can significantly improve your quality of life. Depending on your lifestyle and specific vision needs, your doctor will recommend the best lens for you.
Monofocal IOL: This technology has been around for many years and has improved millions of patient’s vision. The monofocal IOL corrects your vision for one distance only. This means that you will continue to be dependent on glasses for some tasks.
Toric IOL: Toric lens implants are used in patients who have astigmatism in their eyes. The unique design of the new toric IOL makes it possible to reduce or eliminate astigmatism and significantly improve uncorrected distance vision.
Multifocal IOL: Multifocal lens implants are designed to improve your vision to see near, far, and everything in-between. Based on FDA clinical data, there is an 80% chance you will not have to wear eyeglasses again.

Doctor Webster has to be one of the most talented surgeons in the country. She performed corneal transplants in both eyes a few years ago, and saved my vision. I trust Dr Webster with any situation that arises pertaining to my sight. Also, she has a great way of connecting with her patients.

I have been seeing Dr. Webster for several years. When I was ready to have cataract surgery, she was very helpful in the planning of which kind of replacement lenses would work best and the timing of the surgeries. I recently returned to the office as I felt that my vision wasn’t as clear as post operative. She diagnosed secondary cataracts and we have a plan to correct that issue. I have the upmost respect for Dr. Webster and a, very thankful that I was referred to her.

Dr. Lee Webster is a very knowledgeable doctor. She and her staff are very warm, friendly and concerned with giving you the best eye care they can. Dr. Webster recently did cataract surgery on both my eyes, correcting my near-sightedness in the process. I love being able to drive or watch TV now without the need for glasses and I couldn't be happier with Dr. Webster and Shoreline Vision.

My recent visits to Shoreline Vision for Cataract surgeries was in all respects the best overall medical experience I have had in all my years. As an engineering professional I appreciated the facility’s organization and smooth processes. The staff was very informative, caring, and knowledgeable in the sequence, hands on performance, and timing of both procedures. Good job Shoreline Vision and thank you to Doc. R. and all the staff there who helped me through my great vision improvement.

Highly recommend Shoreline Vision whether you're looking for an eye examination/checkup or surgery. I have used this practice and Dr. Rawlinson for both -- my yearly eye exams and my cataract surgery and laser surgery. I went to Shoreline Vision after a bad experience at a very well known vision center in Grand Rapids. As the saying goes, "bigger is not always better" and I learned that the hard way. The staff and services at Shoreline Vision are exceptional.

Excellent pre-op and post-op appointments. Dr. Barron is an excellent surgeon and cataract surgery went incredibly well. I would highly recommend Dr. Barron to anyone in need of eye surgery.
