Cataract Exam & Management in the Central Valley

Book Your Appointment

Working to Improve Your Visual Clarity

The eye’s natural lens refracts light rays to help us see clearly. When we are young, the lens is clear, but as we age, it can become cloudy. When the lens begins to cloud, vision can become blurry, hazy, or discolored. Typically, this occurrence is referred to as the development of cataracts.

Some common symptoms of cataracts include:

Cataracts typically occur as a result of aging. As we get older, the proteins in the eye’s lens begin to break down, causing it to become cloudy. Visible cloudiness usually occurs after age 60, but they may appear sooner or later in life.

Cataracts may also be hereditary. If you have family members with cataracts, you are more likely to develop them as you get older.

Diabetes, eye injuries, radiation treatments, medications, and side effects of eye surgeries can also cause the development of cataracts. It’s also essential to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays as prolonged exposure can cause early cataracts.

Diagnosis & Treatment of Cataracts

During our comprehensive eye exams, we will thoroughly examine your eyes for early signs of diseases, including cataracts. We’ll examine your cornea, iris, lens, retina, and other parts of the eye. We will use a slit-lamp to make it easier to spot abnormalities. We will likely dilate your pupils for a better view of the inside and back of your eye, so ensure you have a ride home from your appointment.

Treatment

Mild cataracts may only require a stronger eyeglass or contact lens prescription to clear your vision, but moderate to severe cataracts can be removed surgically.

Cataract surgery involves removing the eye’s natural cloudy lens, and replacing it with a clear, artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL). Ask your doctor to discuss different IOL options that would be more suitable for you.

Cataract surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, you will be under local anesthesia, and the procedure is relatively quick.

Please don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions!
