June is Cataract Awareness month. Eye Care Physicians & Surgeons can show you ways to improve the health of your eyes so that you can see life clearly.
A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that can impair vision. It is the most common cause of blindness and more than half of all Americans age 65 and older have cataracts. Vision loss occurs because clouding in the lens obstructs light from passing through one’s retina at the back of the eye.
The need for cataract surgery varies for each patient and becomes necessary when your vision becomes bothersome or cloudy enough to interfere with your daily routine. Modern cataract surgery is one of the safest and most successful procedures in medicine. Eye Care surgeons use state-of-the-art, small incision, no stitch techniques. Most patients are in and out of the surgery center within three hours and able to resume daily activities quickly. Concerns about cataract surgery are common. In this technological age, however, surgical procedures are safe, comfortable, and recovery time is quick.
