Over 20.5 million Americans aged 40 or older are affected by cataracts, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Fortunately, Dr Gary Tylock offers safe and effective vision correction services for all of North Texas, including cataract surgery for Arlington TX residents. The Tylock Eye Care & Laser Center offers state-of-the-art techniques to remove cataracts and restore vision.
What Causes Cataracts?
By age 80, nearly 70% of individuals will develop cataracts, although the condition may develop in much younger people. During the aging process, protein begins to aggregate in the lens of the eye. As this protein clump grows, it prevents light from passing through the lens, clouding vision. Smoking, diabetes, and other lifestyle factors may increase risk for cataracts.
Cataract Care from the Tylock Eye Care Center
Dr. Tylock has nearly three decades of experience working as an ophthalmologist and is one of the most respected surgeons that provide cataract surgery for Arlington TX residents. With 20 years of experience as a clinical professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dr. Tylock trained physicians in advanced surgical techniques to restore vision loss caused by cataracts. He has continued his training by attending conferences and taking coursework to stay up-to-date on the latest breakthroughs in cataract surgery.
Dr. Tylock uses state-of-the-art techniques to implant intraocular lenses. By removing the natural lens that has evolved to a cloudy cataract, Tylock surgeons can implant a new lens that restores optimal vision. Dr. Tylock offers the best intraocular lenses on the market, including Crystalens® AO, Toric or Trulign® (for astigmatism correction), ReSTOR® and TECNIS® Multifocal Lenses. For patients, these lenses translate into high-quality clinical outcomes. Following the cataract surgery, many individuals no longer need glasses or bifocal lenses.
If you experience clouded vision, you may be noticing early signs of cataracts. Early detection is important for the best treatment outcomes.
