Cataracts and Cataract Surgery in Birmingham

Birmingham, Alabama

Remove cataracts with Dr. Price Kloess and Dr. Andrew Velazquez at the Alabama Vision Center in Birmingham… Where seeing is believing!

Dr. Kloess and Dr. Velazquez of  the Alabama Vision Center in Birmingham are now offering Bifocal Smart Lens Implants (ReSTOR , Crystalens and Tecnis Multifocal) for those with cataracts needing cataract surgery. “We were the first in Birmingham to offer this technology. The benefits to our cataract patients in Birmingham have been amazing,” says Dr. Kloess.

Around 50 years of age, many will start to encounter a clouding of the naturally clear lens called a cataract. Often cataracts will worsen and need to be removed. “Cataract Surgery is a remarkable procedure experiencing incredible technological advances in recent years,” remarks Dr. Velazquez of Birmingham. “Removing cataracts is a brief and painless out-patient procedure with rapid recovery.”

Birmingham patients undergoing cataract surgery will receive an implant called an intraocular lens, or IOL. According to Dr. Kloess and Dr. Velazquez of the Alabama Vision Center in Birmingham, “the newer multifocal lenses are a real breakthrough in IOL technology. For many of our Birmingham patients with cataracts, not needing glasses to see at distance or to read after cataract surgery has been a dream come true”.

The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends an annual eye examination for those over 50 years of age to detect for diseases such as cataracts. If you have been told you have cataracts, or are simply not seeing as well lately, schedule an appointment with Dr. Kloess or Dr. Velazquez at their Birmingham office: 205-592-3911.
