Why Cataract Surgeons Love Their Job

The eye is a special organ. Over millions of years, the eye has been developing more and more into the complex machine that it is. Many doctors feel a calling to work extensively on this fascinating organ. These doctors are called ophthalmologists. (Not to be confused with optometrists.) This passion is why there are so many good cataract surgeons in Torrance and the rest of the USA. There are countless reasons why doctors choose to enter this exciting field. Today we will explore those reasons.

80% of vision impairments are curable

39 million people in the world are blind; over 240 million people have some sort of vision impairment; and there are 2 million cataract surgeries carried out each year with half of those aged 65 and over in the USA. Even more startling is that 80% of vision problems and impairments are avoidable and curable. With statistics like these, many ophthalmologists realize that there is a great deal that can be done to raise the standard of their patient’s lifestyle and possess a strong desire to be a part of it.

Give people their life back

Let’s be honest – most of us take our vision for granted. It’s only when we start to have problems that we think about it for the first time. Something like a cataract can be debilitating. A small build up of proteins inside someone’s eye can leave them struggling with simple things like going out to the shops.

All around the world, cataracts surgeons from Torrance to Taiwan get to completely change someone’s life by giving back their vision. With the procedures so simple and the benefits to the patient so great, this is one of the best parts of being a cataract surgeon.

Unlike the other organs

No diagram can do justice to the marvel that is the human eye. The muscles in your eyes are the most active in your entire body. Even when we sleep we slip in and out of a phase called rapid eye movement or REM – this is the sleep that revitalizes and refreshes us. In this phase our eyes move rapidly from side to side. Your eye is also one of the fastest recovering body parts. It takes about 48 hours for a corneal scratch to heal – much less than any other body part.

The benefits of being a cataract surgeon are numerous. Many ophthamologists are fascinated by the complexity of the eye and what it can do. With so many eye conditions being easily treated, many surgeons love that they get to help so many people from the elderly person with their cataracts, to the young adult with laser eye surgery. Most of all, cataract surgeon’s love that they get to help people in such a meaningful way.
