Don’t Let Cataracts Cloud Your Vision

Over 50% of people aged 65 and older have a cataract in one or both eyes. As the cataract progresses, vision deteriorates, leading to a decreased quality of life. Fortunately, cataract surgery can easily treat this condition.

What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts are cloudy patches that develop on the lens of your eye. Cataracts can cause blurred or double vision, may increase light sensitivity and interfere with driving, especially at night. Without cataract surgery, millions of people around the world would be unable to see clearly.

The most common symptoms include:
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Trouble seeing at night
  • Sensitivity to glare
  • Colored halos around lights
  • Colors appearing more faded
  • Requiring brighter light for reading

Dr. Hoang is great! Very personable and provided a variety of suggestions for contact lenses for us ... to choose from. Had both siblings fitted here for eye glasses and while the glasses are expensive, the eye exams were quick and accurate!

I have been seeing Dr. Tran for about 8 years now, maybe longer? Even though I have moved further an... d further away during that time (I am now over an hour away), I continue to come here because everyone is so nice and welcoming. The receptionists are always super respectful and helpful. Everyone else is incredibly patient with me, especially when I have to walk around the office with no contacts and have to feel my way around because I am BLIND. Dr. Tran’s exams are little fast paced but I don’t mind. He’s pretty laid back but still very professional. I like being able to crack too jokes without feeling weird/ awkward and I feel safe enough to do that here. I’ve never had any communication issues and everything is always explained to me so there aren’t any surprises. I really appreciate that and will continue to come here as long as it’s open.

Friendly and accommodating staff! Dr. Tran is thorough and knowledgeable. I trust his expertise and ... always get great results year after year. One time, I ran out of contacts before I was able to order my new prescription. In the meantime, I had a huge presentation to give at work. Being that I’m not as confident wearing my glasses, Dr. Tran and his team made sure I had a pair of contacts for the day of. They really care about their patients. You can also tell that his employees are happy to be there. That says a lot about how Dr. Tran is running his practice and taking care of his employees. Look no further! You are in good hands at Epic Eye Care!

I found Dr. Tran's office as I was driving down Beltline Rd in Garland one afternoon. The sign ''Epi... c Eye Care'' caught my attention, and since I had previously been to see another eye specialist not far from his office; and because I was not happy with the final results,. I made an appointment with Dr. Tran. I had also referred a friend of mine to visit the previous eye doctor, and I went with my friend on two or three occasions to have her eyes checked. When we left for the final time, I was not pleased with the examines and the charges. It was obvious the doctor was strictly interested in how much money she could make from my friend. She ran numerous test and each one was very expensive; needless to say, she could not come up with a diagnosis. That was my main reason for making an appointment with Dr. Tran. Since the first time I visited his office... I and my friend and several others whom I have recommended see Dr. Tran for any eye problems have done so for several years now. Dr. Tran is a very unique person and an exceptional human being and Eye Doctor. He has diagnosed and treated my eye problems and many of my friends' ever since I first met him. He has also referred me to a couple of other eye specialist for special treatments which were required.. Dr. Tran is truly one of a kind! And he is very knowledgeable and precise in his profession. I am 73 years old and have seen more than a few medical doctors, dentists, and eye doctors during my life time. Dr. Tran is the exception, and he has been a true blessing to me! I have the utmost appreciation and respect for this man!. If you are in need of a wonderful eye doctor, go see my friend, Dr. Pui Tran. You will see first hand exactly what I have been talking about... Jim Martin - Garland, Texas.

Totally, unexpectedly and rewarding 1st appointment. I have a specially difficult issue with one eye... . From Gabi, the medical assistant, to the doctor himself, they were professional, right to the point, explained his advise and started my new contact lens fittings trial. The unexpected part is that my insurance should cover the expense including the lens which would have cost me over $500 per year. Hopefully if the daily wear contacts work out, my eyes will be healthier, have better vision and comfort. I highly recommend Dr. Tran.

How to Prepare for Cataract Surgery

  • Apply antibiotic or anti-inflammatory eyedrops a few days before surgery if instructed to by your eye doctor
  • Arrange for a ride after the surgery, since you won’t be able to drive
  • Wash your face in the morning of the procedure and don’t wear eye makeup, strong perfumes or aftershave

What Happens During Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery removes your natural cloudy lens and replaces it with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) to improve and restore vision. This common and very safe procedure is performed by an eye doctor (ophthalmologist) on an outpatient basis.

  • The eye surgeon (ophthalmologist) will perform cataract surgery on one eye at a time. That means that you will come in for another surgery on the second eye. The procedure is brief and typically takes 30 to 45 minutes to complete.
  • The eye doctor will place drops into your eyes to numb them and dilate your pupils. Though you’ll be conscious during the procedure, you may be offered a sedative to help you remain calm. The eye surgeon will then remove your natural lens and replace it with the IOL. You should feel no pain or discomfort thanks to the anesthetic.

Cataract Surgery After-Care

Senior couple with glasses

After surgery, you may feel a bit drowsy as an after-effect of the sedative. Your eye doctor will prescribe eye drops to prevent infection, inflammation and to reduce pressure within your eye. The surgeon may recommend that you wear an eye patch for a few days after your surgery and the protective shield when you sleep during the recovery period. Make sure to avoid rubbing your eyes or touching them unless necessary.

A day after cataract surgery, we'll provide a post-operative eye exam to make sure that all is well. Your Garland optometrist will further perform a series of follow-up exams in the weeks and months to come. If determined that you require corrective lenses following your cataract surgery, we'll make sure you get the proper prescription.


Cataract Surgery Management FAQs

What are side effects of cataract surgery?

While side effects are rare, there are some issues that people commonly encounter in the days after surgery, as the eyes heal.

  • Dry eye
  • Feeling that something is in the eye
  • Blurry vision
  • Light sensitivity

If any of these side effects do not subside within a week or two, please contact Epic EyeCare.

Can I delay cataract surgery

You can delay cataract surgery, but keep in mind that your vision will likely worsen the longer you put off the procedure.

When is cataract surgery not recommended?

Cataract patients who also have age-related macular degeneration or retinal detachment may not respond well to cataract surgery and the new lens may not correct vision.

Can cataract surgery give me 20/20 vision?

If you had great vision before developing cataracts, it’s likely that cataract surgery will restore your sight. Moreover, the IOL inserted into your eye can be designed to correct refractive errors, providing you with clear vision.
