Cataracts are a clouding of the lens inside of the eye. Cataracts prevent clear images from appearing on the eye’s retina; causing mild, moderate, even severe blurred vision.
Cataracts are typically an eye disorder associated with aging (over half of the people in America over age 80 have either had a cataract or cataract surgery), generally occurring later in life as the lens structure within the eye changes over time.
During the evaluation of your eye health, we will carefully examine your lens for signs of cataract formation. If a cataract is noticed and the clouding is causing visual disruption, your optometrist will refer you to a trusted and respected surgeon for surgery, which is the only known cure for cataracts. Our doctors will be there for you providing pre and post cataract surgery care.
