Cataracts are the number one cause of poor vision in the United States and nearly three million cataract surgeries are performed in the U.S. annually.
Cataracts are a clouding of the lens of the eye. This clouding prevents light from passing through the lens to the retina. Looking through a cloudy lens is like trying to see through a fogged-up window. This makes it more difficult to read, drive, and even to see others’ facial expressions.
Factors that increase your risk of cataracts include:
• Family history of cataracts
• Previous eye injury or inflammation
• Previous eye surgery
• Prolonged use of corticosteroids
• Excessive exposure to sunlight
• Exposure to ionizing radiation
Common symptoms of cataracts include:
• Cloudy or blurred vision
• Sudden nearsightedness
• Decreased night vision
• Increased glare
• Changes in the way you see color
If you have been diagnosed or have experienced some or all the symptoms with cataracts, there is little need to worry. With modern lens implant technology, your vision can be restored.
Cataract surgery is more successful and precise than ever before. SEE is pleased to be a leading provider of successful cataract treatment. We surgically remove cataracts and replace the clouding lens with a clear artificial lens so that you can see your life clearly again.
