A cataract occurs when the lens of the eye becomes clouded. Cataracts are generally the result of the natural aging process, but can also be caused by other factors, such as diabetes, medications, or eye injuries. It is barely noticeable in the early stages, but over time, the clouding can cause vision loss that may interfere with day-to-day activities. In addition to causing blurred or clouded vision, a cataract can cause the following symptoms:
- Difficulty seeing in dim light
- Seeing “halos” around lights
- Light sensitivity
- Frequent changes in eyeglass or contact lens prescription
- And more
There are methods that exist to try to prevent the worsening of cataracts, such as wearing adequate eye protection, stopping smoking or drinking, and losing excess body weight. However, cataract surgery is the only effective treatment for advanced cataracts. At Apex Eye, we perform surgery for the treatment of cataracts on an outpatient basis using advanced techniques that do not require stitches. This process involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with a permanent intraocular lens implant. At Apex Eye, we offer the convenience of diagnosing, monitoring, and surgically removing cataracts, in easy to access West Side facilities.
