What Are Cataracts?
More than 50% of people over 60 and many much younger than that suffer from cataracts. A cataract is a progressive clouding of the eye’s natural lens that interferes with light passing through the retina. The condition has been described as being similar to looking through a waterfall or piece of wax paper. Currently, there are no treatments that can prevent or reverse this issue. The only way to address a cataract is through surgical removal and replacement of the cloudy lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL).
What Are the Symptoms?
The formation of a cataract is characterized by blurry vision that develops over time. As the cataract forms, the lens of your eye begins to cloud and becomes dense. When the cataract is thick enough, it blocks light from reaching the eye lens, preventing a sharply defined image from reaching your retina. As a result, your vision becomes blurred. This can occur in one or both eyes.
How Do We Treat Cataracts?
Thanks to modern technology, cataracts can now be disrupted and safely removed using laser eye surgery. These procedures can be done at our Arlington surgical center. In addition to surgery, we also offer several options for improving blurry vision and helping you regain your sight. Explore our options below and get in touch today to learn more.
