NEW HOPE FOR DEMENTIA WITH
CATARACT SURGERY AT TRES VISION GROUP
be so, thanks to cataract
surgery that replaces the
clouded natural lens with
a bright, clear artificial lens
through a brief and painless
While the new lens cannot
be felt or seen, the patient
surely knows it is there,
because objects become
crisp, clear and brighter to
the eye. It can truly be lifechanging
in many ways.
The procedure provides a huge boost to quality of life. Cataracts can
exacerbate eye inflammation and glaucoma and makes treatment for
issues as diabetes-induced damaged retinas more difficult. Cataract
surgery can minimize such complications.
It can also help to prevent falls and car accidents. Studies note that
cataract surgery results in fewer falls that can lead to broken hips.
Driving safety improves significantly, too.
In addition to this, most recently cataract extraction was found to be
significantly associated with a lower risk of developing dementia. This
was found in a breaking new study published this year in the Journal
of the American Medical Association that prospectively followed over
3000 patients that were dementia free at the time of the enrollment.
Patients with early cataract extraction after controlling for other
risks had a significantly reduced risk of dementia compared
to those who waited. This is new information is in follow up to a
2020 study by the Gerontological Society of America. This research
followed more than 15,000 older adults for six years, and notes that
poorer visual acuity was associated with higher rates of dementia,
concluding that moderate-to-severe visual impairment could be a
risk factor for this deadly mental illness.
Considering that cataract surgery is extremely safe, painless and
quick, there is no reason to postpone a procedure that promises so

Cataract surgery is one of the most successful medical
procedures of all time. It completely transforms the way you
interact with the world on a daily basis. With better vision
you not only appreciate the things you have seen to a greater
degree, but it also introduces you to things you may have never
seen before. We can call this the unseen and unappreciated.
Things that have remained hidden from your senses are now
readily apparent. The transcendent has becomes perceptible.
You would think this would be enough but this modern medical
miracle continues to surprise, there is more.
“It not only improves the enjoyment and richness of life, but it
can keep you safer and possibly help prevent or delay onset of
Alzheimer’s Dementia,” said Dr. Rafael Trespalacios of Tres Vision
Group in Melbourne, Merritt Island and Suntree.
Exposure to the sun — and the passing years — causes cataracts,
which blur vision and makes even routine tasks more difficult.
Failing eyesight not only significantly affects quality of life and
mental health, but it also threatens independence. It need not
