Cataract Care

Cataract care at our office is a combination of regular eye examinations to identify how much a cataract is affecting your vision, and coordinating your care with a recommended cataract surgeon when it is time to remove it.

Cataracts are a normal part of the aging process. The older you are, the more likely you will have a clouding of the clear lens of your eye. About half of Americans ages 65-74 have cataracts. Premature cataract development can occur from eye injuries, certain diseases, or medications. There can also be a family tendency towards cataracts at an earlier age.

Cataract vision example

Cataracts develop independently in each eye so one eye usually will be slightly worse than the other, or even only present in one eye. Most cataracts evolve slowly and don't disturb your eyesight early on. But with time, cataracts will eventually interfere with your vision making it difficult to read or drive a car – especially at night. At first, stronger lighting and eyeglasses can help you deal with cataracts. But if impaired vision interferes with your usual activities, you might need cataract surgery. Fortunately, cataract surgery is generally a safe, effective procedure.
