Cataracts are the age related changes that occur in the lens of the eye.

cataract

Cataracts are the age related changes that occur in the lens of the eye.

The crystalline lens is the normally transparent part of the eye that is located behind the iris and, together with the cornea, is responsible for focusing light in order for one to see the world clearly.

The lens is normally transparent at birth and very gradually starts to lose its transparency with age due to prolonged exposure to sunlight.  This loss of transparency is what we call “cataract”

Symptoms

Symptoms usually start to appear between the age of 50-60 years old and at first the patient complains of light scatter and haloes at night time.  As the cataract progresses vision starts to deteriorate.

The only cure for cataract is removal through a minimally invasive surgery called “Phaco”.  This breakthrough in cataract removal is a highly sophisticated and highly efficient way of removal of cataract through a 1mm incision. Through this tiny incision we are able to liquify and suck the cataract out.  This procedure is performed under topical anaesthesia, without pain and with no sutures, allowing for very rapid and very smooth visual rehabilitation.

Once the cataract is removed an artificial lens (IOL) must be implanted in its place.  Without that lens vision would be very poor. Recent advances in artificial lenses allow for easy implantation insuring excellent vision.

We recommend a routine vision exam every year. School age children and those over 65 years old should have their vision evaluated annually, as the eyes frequently change during these times. Contact lens wearers and those with certain medical conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure should also see us every year. Many serious eye diseases have no early symptoms and require early treatment to prevent loss of vision. By scheduling an annual screening, you give your eyes the best chance of staying healthy and clear.

We encourage every patient to write down questions that they want to ask the doctor or staff before their visit. We take your health very seriously, and believe the better informed you are the greater the benefit to your vision and health.

There can be multiple causes of unusual visual phenomena. While some are harmless, others need immediate attention and you should call your eye doctor right away to be sure a serious problem, such as retinal detachment, is not occurring. If no other symptoms are present, you’ll want to schedule an appointment with your eye doctor during regular business hours. If additional symptoms are present such as nausea, confusion, headache or fever, call 911 or have someone drive you to your local emergency room for evaluation.

If you have a condition that you consider to be an emergency, we want to see you and will make every attempt to work you into our schedule as soon as possible. If we are unavailable or immediate attention is needed, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room for support.

Studies indicate a relationship between eyes that are unprotected from the sun’s UV rays and conditions like cataracts and macular degeneration. Protect your eyes year round by investing in good quality sunglasses. Our optical department has a number of styles to choose from and all our frames can be fitted with prescription lenses.

It’s an excellent idea to carry a copy of your eyeglass prescription and an extra pair of glasses with you when you travel. Even if the extra glasses are not your latest prescription, you could still function while having a new pair made. If you call our office, we will rush you a new pair as fast as possible.
