While cataracts are easily one of the most common visual problems seen in the United States, they often don’t appear all on their own. Cataracts can frequently come along with secondary vision issues, and when combined, these issues can sometimes compromise one’s vision in a fairly serious way. The resulting loss of vision can be dangerous and upsetting, and cause a serious decline in one’s quality of life.
Cataract surgery is an effective way to relieve the problems caused by cataracts, and we offer a number of other vision correction options that can help you enjoy your full clarity of vision once more. When performed alongside cataract surgery, these vision correction procedures can fully restore the clarity and quality of your vision.
What Exactly Are Cataracts?
When the naturally occurring lens that allows light to pass into your eyeball becomes clouded over and obscured, the resulting condition is known as cataracts. This condition can cause a serious loss of vision, and often involves the following symptoms:
- Hazy vision
- Blurred vision
- Double vision
- Poor night vision
- Yellowish tinge
