Find Your Way Through the Fog with Optical Eyeland

Our eyes are fascinating and complicated organs. They consist of several parts that all work together with the sole purpose of allowing us to see, experience, and interpret the world around us.

The lens is one of the eye’s essential components. It sits behind the pupil and the iris and performs the double duty of working with the cornea to refract light and changes its shape to bring objects at varying distances into focus.

When we’re young, the lens is clear. But as we age, the proteins in the lens start to break down and clump together, slowly creating a clouded area that interferes in your eye’s ability to refract light. This cloudiness is called a cataract.

Cataract Causes

Although cataracts are a natural part of aging, they can develop under other circumstances as well:

Age is the biggest risk factor, but your risk may also go up if you:

CATARACT SYMPTOMS

When cataracts are mild, you may not even notice them. But they will progress and eventually get worse, creating changes to your vision. You may notice symptoms like:

  • Cloudy or blurry vision
  • Faded colors
  • Poor night vision
  • Halos around lights
  • Double vision
  • Constant prescription changes

Cataract Treatments

Some intervention will help in the early stages, but cataracts will eventually start to impact your ability to read, drive, write, and perform day-to-day activities. If your cataracts start interfering in your quality of life, you may be referred for cataract surgery.

Home Treatment

If you start to notice small changes in your vision, you can improve your ability to see by using brighter lights, magnifying lenses, or anti-glare sunglasses.

You may be able to improve your vision with new glasses or contact lenses.

If your cataracts start interfering in your ability to perform daily activities, you may be a good candidate for cataract surgery.

Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgeries in the United States and is safe and effective. It is performed as an outpatient procedure and generally takes an hour or less.

The surgery itself involves replacing your clouded natural lens with an artificial lens.
