When Should I have Cataract Surgery?

Are cataracts interfering with your day-to-day routine? If so, it’s time to consider cataract surgery.

Cataracts are clouded areas in the lens that can develop in one or both eyes…and are primarily caused by aging.  Cataract development is painless and develops slowly over time, so often people aren’t even aware of a change in vision.

Because cataracts develop over time, vision loss is gradual but can also be dangerous when performing common activities. Here are several reasons that you may want to consider having cataracts removed:

  • Sun or headlight glare impairs your vision, making it difficult for you to drive safely.
  • Poor vision is affecting your ability to perform normal tasks and the things you love, like golf, needlework or reading.
  • Blurred vision, glare, double vision, dull color vision.

Cataract surgery is a common procedure (the total number of people who have cataracts is estimated to increase to 30.1 million by 202), so don’t let nerves get the best of you. During this outpatient procedure, your surgeon will remove the clouded lens, and replace it with an artificial lens. If you might be a candidate for cataract surgery, or just have questions about eye health, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with Eye Center of Texas. We can get you on the path to a brighter, clearer future.
