Cataracts

Just like skin wrinkles and hair greys with aging, cataracts are the maturing process of the eye’s natural lens. Therefore, it typically is more bothersome in the senior population. Cataracts can also be caused by certain medications, cumulative exposure to sunlight, diabetes and other illnesses.

Cataract symptoms may include:

  • Blurry vision
  • Lights seem too bright or have a “halo” effect
  • Double vision in one eye
  • Decreased night vision – sensitivity to glare from headlights
  • Dull or fading colors

Early cataracts may be treated with increased glasses or contact prescription. Once the cataract begins to interfere with daily tasks such as reading and driving, or in other words, once the cataract is ripe, surgery is the only remaining option.

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is a very common procedure, and complications are rare and usually treatable. The surgery itself is highly successful in improving the vision of patients about 95% of the time. Cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure usually taking less than 30 minutes to complete.

Today there are many exciting options to consider when preparing for cataract surgery. We are anxious to discuss these with you.

If you have decreased vision and think you have cataracts we encourage you to call us today.
