A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside the eye normally due to aging. Cataracts prevent clear images from appearing on the retina; causing mild, moderate, or even severe blurred vision.
During the evaluation of your eye health our optometrist will carefully examine your lens for signs of cataract formation. If a cataract is noticed they will continue to monitor your lenses for progression during your annual comprehensive eye exams. If your cataract matures to the point where glasses are no longer able to provide you with acceptable vision, we will refer you to a trusted and respected ophthalmologist for surgery. This is the only known cure for cataracts. The doctors at Village Creek Optometry will be there for you providing pre- and post-surgical care.
