Cataracts

What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts are clouded formations that develop on the crystalline lens of the eye over time. These painless blurs cause a loss of vision by preventing light from passing through the retina. 

Cataracts most commonly develop naturally as a part of the aging process, although they can also result from exposure to toxic substances, diseases such as diabetes, or after a physical injury to the eye.

Cataract Diagnosis and Treatment Services 

The only way to diagnose if you have cataracts, as well as to determine the proper treatment, is to have a comprehensive eye examination.

Fortunately, the Doctors of Nationwide Optometry often can correct your cataract-related vision problems with glasses or contacts. However, individuals with advanced cataracts may be advised to consider cataract surgery.

The surgery involves removing the clouded lens from your eye and replacing it with a transparent intraocular lens (IOL). After surgery, you can expect a drastic improvement in your vision. If you believe you are a candidate for surgery, treatment is available at one of our medical centers.
