What are Cataracts?

A cataract is the clouding of the natural lens which, ultimately, blocks light from getting properly focused on the back of the eye (the retina). They are incredibly common. This clouding effect affects nearly half of all Americans by the age of 65. Thanks to the dedicated doctors at Katzen Eye Group who specialize in cataract surgery, you don’t have to live with cataracts.

Our highly skilled doctors at Katzen Eye Group specialize in advanced cataract surgery and are dedicated to helping you achieve quality vision.

How Cataracts Impact Daily Life

Daily tasks like reading become much more challenging, requiring brighter room lighting than ever before. The contrast of printed material seems to get worse every month. Contrast in general gets less and less discernable especially at night. Driving into the rising or setting sun becomes extremely difficult. Glare becomes more of an issue. Those bright halogen headlights and bright streetlights are extremely uncomfortable. All of this is due to light entering the eye and scattering throughout the back of the eye as it hits the cloudy natural lens.

How Do I Know if I Have a Cataract?

The first signs of cataracts typically involve night halos or glares in your vision. You might also have difficulty driving or reading, and you may notice that colors aren’t as vivid as they once were. These are all possible indicators that you’re developing a cataract. The only way to know for sure, though, is to schedule a consultation with an eye doctor.

Are cataracts treatable?

Yes! For those who have already developed a formal cataract, typically found in patients ages 60 and above, we recommend advanced cataract surgery.

For patients with fully-developed cataracts, cataract surgery is the solution. However, if your symptoms suggest that you’re showing early symptoms of cataract development but not a fully developed cataract, other treatment possibilities are available.
