I have a Cataract. Now what?
- Posted on: Jun 2 2016
Let’s start with the facts. What exactly is a cataract?
Normally, the lens of the eye is clear. Light passes through the lens, allowing an image to be focused on our retina. Throughout life, clouding of the lens occurs leading to light scatter and decreased vision.
You may have a developing cataract if you are experiencing some of the following symptoms:
-dull colors and reduced contrast
-halos and glare
At what point is it time for cataract extraction?
When your cataract and reduced vision begins to interfere with your daily activities, it may be time to consider cataract surgery. If you begin to have trouble driving, reading, and even recognizing faces, speak to your ophthalmologist about your cataract surgery options.
At New York Laser Vision, we have customized cataract surgery plans specific to our patient’s needs. With many options and procedure types, we can acquire the vision you need and deserve!
