What are cataracts?
Cataracts usually develop gradually and without pain as the lens in the eye loses transparency and the lens material yellows. The result is a gradual loss of brightness and a slight skewing of color perception that usually goes unnoticed. Cataracts are the leading cause of visual disability in people over 65. Fortunately, cataract surgery is one of the most common and successful medical procedures in the world today. An annual vision exam is very important for older adults to detect this common eye disease. Our doctors will discuss treatment options, should you be diagnosed.
