Cataracts

A cataract is the natural clouding of the eye's lens that affects all people! Cataracts typically progress slowly. Most people start exhibiting cataracts in their late 50s and early 60s, but don't require surgery until their late 60s or early 70s. We will guide you down the road of cataracts and manage your surgical referral and post-operation care once it is necessary.
symptoms may include:
  • Clouded, blurred or dim vision
  • Decreased vision overall
  • Inability to see well in low lighting
  • Sensitivity to light and glare
  • Seeing "halos" around lights
  • Spots in front of the eye(s)
  • A feeling of "film" over the eyes

FAQs

What causes cataracts?

Cataracts can be caused by aging, prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light, certain medical conditions like diabetes, smoking, and genetic factors.

How are cataracts diagnosed?

Cataracts are diagnosed through a comprehensive eye exam that includes visual acuity tests, pupil dilation, and evaluation of the lens's clarity.

Can cataracts be prevented?

While cataracts cannot always be prevented, wearing sunglasses with UV protection, maintaining a healthy diet rich in antioxidants, and avoiding smoking can help reduce the risk.

How are cataracts treated?

Cataracts are typically treated with surgery to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with an artificial lens. Cataract surgery is a safe and effective procedure that can significantly improve vision.
