PROVIDING SWIFT CATARACT DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT
For virtually everyone, eyesight gets worse as they age. But for some, protein builds up in the eye lens, causing a cloudy spot that impairs their vision. This cloudy spot is a cataract. Some people are more susceptible to cataracts than others, and there are several factors that increase the risk of getting this condition. These factors include the following:
- Prolonged Use of Corticosteroid Medication
- Previous Eye Injury or Surgery
- High Level of Alcohol Consumption
- Family History of Cataracts
- UV Radiation
- Hormone Replacement Therapy
- Statin Medication
- High Myopia
While there are many types of eye disease, cataracts are the leading cause of blindness worldwide. Fortunately, this condition is reversible with cataract surgery. Our office is proud to co-manage with cataract specialists that are proven experts in their field.
When you receive a cataract diagnosis, you may not want to consider surgery. And while it is not the only treatment option available, it is one of the most effective. The relatively painless procedure is performed on more than 3 million people in the United States every year—and 90% of those who opt for surgery get vision restored to between 20/20 and 20/40.
