How Shinagawa Saved Luis Nuguid’s Vision With Cataract Surgery

When it comes to health, early detection of certain conditions is always better.

That was the case for 63-year-old Luis Nuguid, father of influencers Nina and Aggy, as his eyesight relished the benefits of having early detection of Cataracts on both his eyes.

With the eye experts of Shinagawa at the helm, Luis’ eyes were in safe hands.

“It’s a good thing Shinagawa was able to detect my Cataracts early because there’s a chance they can thicken over time,” shared Luis.

Initially, Nina and Aggy were seeking LASIK for Luis as his eyesight was getting more blurry but after in-depth and advanced eye exams, it was revealed that the older Nuguid had Cataracts on both his eyes, causing the need for surgery.

“I was supposed to have LASIK but instead, I have Cataract on both eyes. Cataract Surgery was the one I needed and I had it. It felt good. I now have clear eyesight again!”

With the proper diagnosis and plan, Luis still got his wish. He now has a brighter vision after a highly-successful Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery at Shinagawa on both his eyes.

Nina and Aggy expressed their joy after seeing their father enjoying his brand new sharp vision.

“Everything went well with our dad’s Cataract surgery for both his eyes at Shinagawa. We can tell that everything went well. He now has no problems with his eyes, no complications, no side effects and nothing bad happened,” said Nina.

“Believe it or not, his vision is now 20/15. His vision now is even clearer than the normal 20/20. He can now drive better, cook and watch TV. He’s doing all things more comfortably again,” shared Aggy.

The sisters then pointed out the differences with Shinagawa’s Premium Cataract Surgery and the reasons why their dad is now having the luxury of seeing the world better again.

“We’re really impressed with Shinagawa’s advanced technology, especially the machine (Catalys) used for our dad’s Cataract surgery. It took only less 30 minutes for the whole process already with no downtime. Shinagawa’s Premier Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery is more advanced than the traditional one as it is even safer and accurate, plus it is bladeless,” added the sisters.

After what their dad experienced, the sisters would want others to have the same gift as well that’s why they dropped a simple tip.

“If you have parents, Lolo, Lola, auntie, Tito, or even yourself, want to have a normal and brighter vision, we highly-recommend Shinagawa.”

A man of few words, Luis was still able to squeeze in some to express just how he feels with his bright eyesight.

“It felt good. I now have clear eyesight again!” expressed Luis.

When Are Cataracts Bad Enough To Have The Need For Surgery | Shinagawa Cataract Blog

When Is The Right Time For You To Have Cataract Surgery?

When it comes to dealing with cataracts, one of the most commonly asked questions is: when is cataract bad enough to require surgery already?

Well, identifying when to have cataract surgery can be simple. But if you take it upon yourself to monitor your cataract and have regular eye checkups, knowing when can be much easier.

Cataracts should be removed as soon as detected to avoid more complications. It is essential to take care of cataracts that soon as opposed to the time that you start experiencing more bothersome visual problems.

Once a cataract had already experienced that, then it has most likely progressed.

If your vision problems due to a cataract become more and more noticeable, it is very likely that it is already bad enough and that you would already need surgery to have it removed and taken care of.

If you’re experiencing constant bothersome visual problems like halos and glares at night, then that is most likely your cue.

Remember, if initial measures to help your vision, like eyeglasses, don’t work anymore, surgery is the only effective treatment.

In a nutshell, if you have a cataract and it is already causing you a constant blurred vision that makes it extremely difficult for you to things and activities on a daily basis, it’s most likely time for you to have the surgery to restore your eyesight.

Still, an eye doctor knows best that’s why when that time comes, it’s on you to have a corresponding action. It’s time to consult an ophthalmologist to map out the best plan and schedule for cataract surgery.

Since it’s impossible to predict accurately how quickly, or not, a cataract develops, having constant eye checkups to know its status is very much essential as untreated cataract may eventually cause blindness.

For early detection and to avoid complications that may arise due to cataract, a regular checkup is a must.

Can Cataract Surgery Be Performed On Both Eyes At The Same Time | Shinagawa Cataract Blog

Can Cataract Surgery Be Performed On Both Eyes At The Same Time?

If you happen to have Cataracts in both your eyes, you’re probably wondering if you can have surgery can be performed on them at the same time.

Typically, they should be done one-by-one to be able to get the best results. One eye is performed first, then the remaining eye is to be performed weeks later.

While many would definitely want both eyes to be done at the same time for convenience, it is simply not recommended as per Ophthalmologists. This is because the first eye done should be able to recover and stabilize first before the other eye can be done.

Cataract studies indicate that surgeries should be done this way as it presents patients excellent results with no increased rate of complications.

While the risk of infection and other serious complications from Cataract surgery are quite low, if both eyes were to become either infected or experience other complications as well, the results could be significantly devastating for a stretch of time, or possibly, even permanently.

Furthermore, separate procedures on each eye on separate days enable the surgeon and patient to evaluate the visual outcome of the first eye, which can possibly influence choices made for the second one.

Cataract surgery at Shinagawa is proven and tested to be very safe and effective, given the advancements in its technology and Ophthalmologists.

That’s why we can give you an accurate pre-operative eye test and consultation that will provide you all the pros and cons of all your cataract surgery options to determine the best choices for the specific needs of your eyes.

What Happens With Untreated Cataracts | Shinagawa Cataract Blog

What Happens With Untreated Cataracts?

Leaving developed cataracts untreated should be a big no-no.

In most cases, cataracts are bound to worsen over time if left untreated. In those cases, cataracts can gradually cause a continual reduction of vision.

While it is true that an immediate action is not yet urgent during early stages wherein a cataract does not interfere that much yet in your daily living, it is most likely bound to develop along the way. Some people become legally blind due to an untreated cataract.

Worse, it can go as far as causing total blindness if left untreated for long periods of time.

Untreated cataracts have the potential to be hyper-mature, a state wherein it is significantly more difficult to remove them as a procedure can likely cause further complications.

Despite all of the tools available and medical advancements, it is still improbable to predict just how quickly a cataract can worsen. With that, it is up to you to observe and be wary of your cataract to be able to map out a corresponding action once the need arises.
