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.

Sep 21, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — Fiji's prime minister used a state visit on Monday to urge Australia to take more ambitious actions to slash greenhouse gas emissions, a month after differences on climate change policy created anger and frustration at a forum of Pacific island leaders. Voreqe Bainimarama, who was Fijian Military Forces commander when he seized power in a 2006 coup, said in a speech at the Australian Defense College that he hoped Fiji and Australia could "find more common ground" on climate change.

New Zealand gun buyback exposes emotions, possibly hustlers

Sep 21, 2019

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — Some New Zealand gun owners are upset they're being compelled to hand over their assault weapons for money. Others believe a government-imposed ban on certain semi-automatics following a March shooting massacre is the best way to combat gun violence. And The Associated Press has found that at least one man may have tried to swindle hundreds of thousands of dollars from the system set up to compensate gun owners. New Zealand is six weeks into an ambitious program to buy tens of thousands of guns from owners across the country. After a lone gunman killed 51...

New Zealand parliament speaker soothes baby as debate rages

Sep 21, 2019

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — The man who presides over New Zealand's parliament has been called a baby whisperer. He was in action again this week, gently rocking, bottle feeding and burping a colleague's infant as a lawmaker ranted about gas prices. Speaker Trevor Mallard held baby Tutanekai for about 15 minutes during a fiery general debate Wednesday after spotting lawmaker Tamati Coffey with his 6-week-old son. Mallard said Friday he's been trying to make parliament a more baby-friendly place by adding baby chairs, family rooms and soon, a slide. He's also increased the flexibility around family leave for lawmakers. New...

Australian court upholds sex abuse verdict of Cardinal Pell

Sep 21, 2019

MELBOURNE, Australia — An Australian appeals court Wednesday upheld convictions against Cardinal George Pell, the most senior Catholic to be found guilty of sexually abusing children, in a decision cheered by scores of abuse survivors and victims' advocates demonstrating outside the court. A unanimous jury in December found Pope Francis' former finance minister guilty of molesting two 13-year-old choirboys in Melbourne's St. Patrick's Cathedral more than two decades ago. The Victoria state Court of Appeal rejected his appeal in a 2-1 ruling, with the court's chief justice saying the majority found Pell's accuser to be a compelling "witness of truth."...

Pell's appeal pitted word of former choirboy against priest

Sep 21, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — Cardinal George Pell's appeal against his convictions for child molestation was largely a question of who the jury should have believed, his accuser or a senior priest whose church role was likened to Pell's bodyguard. Pell's accuser was a 13-year-old choirboy when he alleged that he was abused by then-Melbourne Archbishop Pell at the city's St. Patrick's Cathedral in December 1996 and February 1997. Monsignor Charles Portelli was a master of ceremonies at the 11 a.m. Sunday Masses where the choir sang. A chorister in the 1990s, David Dearing, told police that Portelli, Pell's right-hand man, was...
