Lexington KY Vision Center Discusses Cataract Surgery

May 24, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Medical Vision Institute in Lexington, Kentucky recently discussed cataracts, what causes them, and what solutions are available to patients who have them. MVI provides cataract removal surgery to patients of the Bluegrass and many other services.

A spokesperson for MVI states, “Many people believe that they won’t get cataracts until they are at least 80 years of age. Unfortunately, this is not true. While the majority of cataract patients are in the 75 to 90 age range, we have seen patients as young as 50 with cataracts.” While most cataracts can be attributed to aging, there are many other factors that can cause them. The NEI estimates that at least half of all Americans will have cataracts by the time they reach the age of 80.

Cataracts are caused when the lens behind the pupil of the eye begins to gather proteins that can clump together and distort the vision by forming a cloud over the lens. The cataract may grow over time, which can make it very difficult to see clearly in the affected eye. Cataracts can occur in just one eye or in both, however they cannot spread from one affected eye to the other. Cataracts are not at all contagious.

While age was originally considered the main factor for developing cataracts, researchers today believe that other things such as environment, diabetes, or long term smoking can also contribute to the development of cataracts. Luckily, cataract removal is a very simple out patient surgery.

Cataract surgery is a non-invasive surgery that does not require a hospital stay. Most patients are treated and then released to go home directly after the procedure. Most patients feel little to no discomfort after the procedure and many are back to their normal daily schedules the following day.

Medical Vision Institute has been providing cataract surgery Lexington, KY for more than 20 years. Board Certified Ophthalmologist, Dr. Jitander Dudee, and his experienced staff offer a state of the art medical center to serve multitudes of patients throughout central Kentucky. Dr. Dudee has personally performed thousands of cataract removal surgeries on patients of all ages and maintains a full service practice for patients.

Dr. Dudee states that treatment of cataracts begins with an initial consultation to determine if cataracts are indeed present. If cataracts are found to be an issue, his trained staff will consult with the patient to recommend a course of treatment. Dr. Dudee provides an in-depth consultation to go over expectations and ultimate vision goals with patients, explaining the entire process so that the patient knows his or her options and what to expect before, during, and after cataract surgery.

Dr. Dudee confirms that he and his entire team place importance on the overall health and satisfaction of each patient. Consultations are provided for a wide range of vision issues from corrective lenses to various corrective surgeries. He urges those who are showing signs of cataracts to contact the office and schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

If cataracts are not removed, your vision can be severely affected, or even completely hindered in extreme cases. Patients in Lexington and the surrounding area who believe they may have cataracts or who have more questions about this issue and its treatment can contact Medical Vision Institute through their website or directly by phone or email to schedule an initial consultation.

Prosecutors: Australian cardinal's convictions should stand

Jun 19, 2019

MELBOURNE, Australia — Australian prosecutors argued in court Thursday that child sex convictions against a Roman Catholic cardinal should not be overturned and said his accuser had been a compelling witness. Cardinal George Pell, 77, is the most senior Catholic to be convicted of child sex abuse and is appealing those guilty verdicts in the Victoria state Court of Appeal. He attended both days of the hearing, wearing a cleric's collar and occasionally taking notes. The three judges reserved their decision to a date to be set. Prosecutor Chris Boyce told the judges that the convictions, largely based on the...

Australian Cardinal Pell appeals child sex convictions

MELBOURNE, Australia — Lawyers for the most senior Roman Catholic found guilty of child sex abuse argued in his appeal on Wednesday that he could not have molested two choirboys in an Australian cathedral undetected moments after Sunday Masses while he was dressed in an archbishop's robes. Cardinal George Pell, 77, wore a black suit and black shirt with a cleric's collar when he appeared for the Victoria state Court of Appeal hearing before three judges.

New Zealand's 1st 'well-being budget' targets mental health

Jun 19, 2019

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — New Zealand's government announced Thursday it will spend billions of dollars more on mental health services and combatting child poverty as part of a new approach to its finances. The liberal-led government unveiled the country's first so-called well-being budget. It aims to measure social outcomes like health and the environment alongside traditional metrics such as economic growth. The new approach has been lauded by some internationally but criticized by the conservative opposition as meaningless window-dressing. The budget was the first since a gunman killed 51 people at two Christchurch mosques in March, and it included money...

Australian state leader intervenes to approve coal mine

Jun 19, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — An Australian state government leader intervened on Wednesday to fast-track a proposed coal mine days after voters rejected tougher action to curb greenhouse gas emissions in the country's general election. The Carmichael mine proposed by India's Adani Mining in Queensland state was a bitterly polarizing issue ahead of Saturday's national election, which returned the conservative coalition government for a third three-year term. The election result defied opinion polls that suggested the center-left Labor Party would win government and implement its policies of slashing Australia's greenhouse gas emissions by 45% below 2005 levels by 2030. The coalition had...
