Cataracts develop slowly over a long period of time, which is why this condition is more prevalent in seniors over the age of 55. Not only that, but they occur when the proteins in your eyes break down. As the protein pieces start to clump together, they form cataracts over your eye lens, which keeps light from entering and creating clear images. As a result, your vision becomes cloudy and blurred. While small cataracts may not affect your vision as much, larger ones can cause sensitivity to light, halos around lights, poor night vision, faded colors. and double vision in one eye.
In the early stages, cataracts generally have a minimal effect on your vision. As the cataracts progress, our ophthalmologist may recommend corrective lenses to help manage your symptoms. When prescription eyewear is not effective in improving your eyesight and your vision interferes with performing daily tasks, you might consider cataract surgery. Cataracts surgery may permanently treat cataracts and restore the quality of your sight.
Cataract Eye Surgery
Cataracts surgery consists of removing the cloudy lens of your eye and replacing it with a clear, artificial lens to improve your vision. This surgery can be performed at our clinic and our ophthalmologist can help you select the artificial lens best suited for your visual needs. If you need cataracts surgery for both eyes, we’ll treat one eye and wait a week or two for it to heal before treating the other. Cataract eye surgery is an outpatient surgery, so you can return home to heal after your treatment. The procedure is safe and can help you achieve the results you desire.
