Cataract Surgery Co-Management Q & A

What Are Cataracts?

The lens of the eye is located behind the cornea and iris and in front of the retina. It helps to focus light on the retina, enabling clear images to be formed. Cataracts are a condition where those natural lenses of the eye become cloudy and yellowed, often as part of the aging process. They develop when protein in the lenses of the eye begin to form clumps that cause clouding and prevent light from reaching the retina clearly. This can occur in one eye or both. Cataracts may also be the result of smoking, diabetes, injury, prolonged use of corticosteroids or radiation therapy.

How Does Dr. Losh Assist Patients with Cataract Surgery?

Dr. Losh works closely with his patients who need to cataract surgery to help them understand the procedure and their options.

  • "My family and I have been patients of Dr. Losh's for the last year and a half. Being in the health care profession myself, I truly appreciate the high standard of care that Dr. Losh provides and the professionalism that is shown in his practice. He is thorough, takes time to listen and evaluate, and I like how he explains things throughout the exam. Every Spring, I battle annoying eye allergies and had all but given up on a solution to manage them, but Dr. Losh provided a successful answer that has helped my eye allergies to be much more tolerable. I am thankful that Dr. Losh and his wife Tracey have their practice in Maryville and without hesitation, would recommend them to family and friends."
