Cataract Surgery
 

A cataract is an opacity that clouds the natural lens inside the eye.  Normally the path of light to the retina (where the light sensors are) is as clear as possible.  When proteins that make up the lens clump together, the resulting cataract blocks some of the light, making vision blurry or hazy.

Cataracts typically occur more frequently in the aging population, however there are many other factors such as family history, diabetes, long term UV exposure, or certain medications like steroids that can cause cataracts.  Also, previous eye injuries can be an attributing factor.

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.

 

Some people actually experience an improvement in their near vision during the beginning stages of a cataract.  Unfortunately, this effect goes away as the disease progresses.  Early on, a cataract may be treated with increased glasses or contact prescription along with a UV blocking coating.  Once the cataract begins to interfere with daily tasks such as reading and driving, surgery is the only remaining option. We will work closely with your surgeon to ensure a desirable outcome.
