Having a cataract doesn’t necessarily mean you need surgery right away. However, the only way to know if you are a candidate for surgery is to schedule a Cataract Evaluation. Through a series of tests, Pendleton Eye Center will diagnose the root cause of any vision disturbances you may be experiencing and discuss the best treatment options for you.
A cataract evaluation is a very thorough exam, and you should plan accordingly. This evaluation may take up to 2 hours in our office, but we will make you feel as comfortable as possible during your time with us. Your eyes will be dilated to allow our team to fully analyze your entire eye, so you may need to have someone drive you home.
Pendleton Eye Center is not an assembly line practice. We form strong bonds with each patient; we treat you like family! Scheduling your Cataract Evaluation with us ensures that you will be well educated about the procedure and the options available to you! We value open and honest communication and look forward to partnering with you to make the best decisions about vision improvement procedures.
During the cataract evaluation you will undergo a series of cataract assessments to help our team get a picture of your eye health. Additionally, our team will begin to prepare you for the decisions you may need to make if you are deemed a candidate for surgery. First is your choice of a replacement lens implant, also known as an IOL. The second is if the Laser-assisted cataract removal method will be used. The choice of lens implant will have the greatest impact on your new vision.
