What Are Cataracts?
Cataracts are cloudy areas of your eye's lens. These cloudy areas can significantly impair your vision. They often develop very slowly, so you may not notice that you have cataracts for quite some time. The first symptom that most patients notice is blurry vision. However, there are other symptoms.
In addition to blurry vision, cataracts can also cause sensitivity to light. You may see halos around lights and other bright objects, especially at night. It may also become difficult to see at night.
Cataracts usually occur due to aging. Also, cataracts can be caused by trauma.
Treatments for Cataracts
If you have mild cataracts, we can help you improve your vision with special glasses. These glasses can not only reduce blurriness, but they can also reduce how sensitive your eyes are to light. Our optometrist team can prescribe glasses for patients with mild cataracts.
Even if you get glasses, your cataracts may continue to worsen. However, you can have the affected lenses removed from your eyes and replaced with artificial lenses. This provides significant improvement for many people. We cannot perform this surgery, but we can refer you to a leading ophthalmologist who can. An optometrist from our team can also help manage your preparation for the surgery and your recovery.
