Patient Instructions for John Doe on 7/22/05
YOUR EYES HAVE BEEN DILATED
Dilation drops temporarily increase the size of your pupils. This lets us accurately investigate the health
of your eyes and other important general health aspects. Dilation of your eyes is a temporary
inconvenience; however, benefits far outweigh the inconvenience.
The effects of eye dilation drops will gradually decrease. It typically takes TWO to SIX HOURS for the
effects to wear off. During this time, reading may be more difficult and sensitivity to light may increase.
For a short time, wearing sunglasses may help. Notify us if you feel your long distance vision is blurred
excessively before attempting to drive. Your patience during this very important procedure is
CALL MY OFFICE IMMEDIATELY AT 515-327-8850 IF YOU EXPERIENCE EXCESSIVE PAIN,
DISCOMFORT OR NAUSEA
REMEMBER TO HAVE REGULAR MEDICAL EYE EXAMINATIONS.
Eye disease can occur at any age. Since most blindness is preventable if diagnosed and treated early,
it is extremely important to have regular eye examinations. Keep in mind that many eye diseases are
asymptomatic until after the damage to the eye has already occurred so early detection is the key. Use
this as a reminder to plan for regular eye examinations to maintain sight throughout a lifetime.

CATARACT What is a cataract? * A cataract is the loss of transparency of the lens of the eye. It often appears like a window that is fogged with steam. What causes cataract formation? * Aging, the most common cause. * Family history. * Steroid use. * Injury to the eye. * Diabetes. * Previous eye surgery. * Long-term exposure to sunlight. How do I know if I have a cataract? * The best way for early detection is regular eye examinations by your medical eye doctor. There are many causes of visual loss in addition to the cataract such as problems involving the optic nerve and retina. If these other problems exist, cataract removal may not result in the return or improvement of vision. Your eye doctor can tell you how much improvement in vision is likely. Does it take a long time for a cataract to form? * Cataract development varies greatly between patients and is affected by the cause of the cataract. Generally, cataracts progress gradually over many years. Some people, especially diabetics and younger patients, may find that cataract formation progresses rapidly over a few months making it impossible to know exactly how long it will take for the cataract to develop. What is the treatment for cataracts? * The only way to remove a cataract is surgery. If the symptoms are not restricting your activity, a change of glasses may alleviate the symptoms at this time. No medications, exercise, optical devices or dietary supplements have been shown to stop the progression or prevent cataracts. It is important to provide protection from excessive sunlight. Making sure that the sunglasses you wear screen out ultraviolet (UV) light rays or your regular eyeglasses are coated with a clear, anti-UV coating will help prevent or slow the progression of cataracts. How do I know if I need surgery? * Surgery is considered when your vision is interfering with your daily activities. It is important to evaluate if you can see to do your job and drive safely. Can you read and watch TV in comfort? Are you able to cook, do your shopping and yard work or take your medications without difficulty? Depending on how you feel your vision is affecting your daily life, you and your eye doctor will decide together when it is the appropriate time to do surgery. What is involved with cataract surgery? * This surgery is generally performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. With the assistance of a microscope, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a permanent intraocular lens implant. Right after the surgery you should be able to immediately perform all your normal activities except for the most strenuous ones. You will need to take eye drops as directed by your eye doctor. Follow-up visits are necessary to make sure the surgical site is healing without problems. This procedure is performed on over 1.4 million people each year in the United States alone, 95% without complications. With this highly successful procedure, 90% of the time vision improves unless a problem also exists with the cornea, retina or optic nerve. As with any surgery, a good result cannot be guaranteed. _______________________________ An. Optometrist, MD
