Cataracts are a common eye condition that are often related to the natural aging process. However, they can develop in patients of any age. Cataracts can be severe or mild depending on how long they’ve been developing.
Our optometrists monitor the development of cataracts during all adult and senior, children’s, and diabetic eye exams. When cataracts have started impacting your daily life, our optometrists can refer you for cataract-removal surgery and monitor your ocular health both before and after the procedure.
Come in for annual eye exams and steer clear of this type of eye disease.
Ultraviolet light is a major risk factor for cataracts. UVA and UVB rays pose unique risks to the eyes, and exposure to UVA especially can do slow and subtle damage to your ocular lens cells. It’s thought that UVA might have more to do with cataracts because it can penetrate farther into the body.
Wear sunglasses when exposed to UV light, especially in the early morning when most are caught off-guard by low morning light. It’s a great idea to have your children wear sunglasses as well.
Our optometrists focus on catching cataracts before they advance. But in the case your cataracts are impairing your ability to complete your day-to-day activities, we provide careful referrals for cataract surgery. Trusted eye surgeons are important parts of our cataract management process.
If cataract surgery is the best option for you, we provide the support and management necessary for your recovery.
Cataract surgery comes with various risks, so coordinating with a trusted surgeon and receiving thorough follow-up care is paramount. Please book a comprehensive eye exam today to protect your eyes from cataracts.
