Symptoms of Cataracts
Cataracts can cause many different symptoms. While the range of symptoms experienced by patients can vary, there are a few symptoms that almost every patient has. These symptoms include blurry vision, seeing halos around light sources, and trouble seeing at night. If you have these three symptoms, you likely have cataracts. Other symptoms include nearsightedness and partial colorblindness. If you are having any of these symptoms, you should come into our clinic for an eye exam.
Treatment for Cataracts
If you believe that you have cataracts, the first step is to come in for an eye exam. Our team will carefully examine your eyes to determine if you do have cataracts. If your cataracts are not severe, you may have the option of wearing special glasses. However, this is only a temporary measure. If you do not want to take this temporary measure or you have severe cataracts, you will need to get surgery.
Cataract surgery involves the removal of the eye's affected lens. The lens will then be replaced with an artificial lens. We have completed many cataract surgeries at our practice. These procedures are safe and effective.
Cataracts can't recur once the surgery has been performed. This is because cataracts affect your eye's lenses, and these lenses will have been completely removed. However, it is possible to develop a cataract in your other eye if you only had the procedure on one eye.
