Cataracts

Do you have cataracts? Congratulations! The only people who do not get cataracts are those who don’t live long enough. You made it! Unlike many other parts of aging, this can be good news. Why? With modern technology, surgeons can not only fix cataracts but can also potentially fix other vision problems. Watch the video and learn more about cataracts, cataract surgery, and the other visual problems that can be addressed.

What is a cataract?

A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens of the eye. All eyes have small natural lenses, about the size of an M&M, that sit behind the iris – the colored part of the eye. When we are young, the natural lens is clear and able to flex. The flexing allows us to view things from a distance and then almost instantaneously read something up close.

Over time, this lens first becomes stiff. It is unable to flex as well, and thus, we lose our ability to see things up close. People at this stage frequently need to wear reading glasses or bifocals. If you are nearsighted, you may need to take off your glasses to see up close.

With this stiffening, the lens also begins to lose its clarity. At first, this can be noticed by needing more light for reading, and night vision begins to deteriorate. The lens will continue to cloud to the point where it affects your daily activities. At this point, the lens is considered a cataract. The cataract will continue to deteriorate your vision until you decide it is time for cataract surgery.

Cataract Symptoms

What is astigmatism?

Astigmatism is an imperfection in the curvature of your cornea – the clear front window of your eye. Approximately 1/3 of the population has visually significant astigmatism. Astigmatism usually causes vision to be blurred or distorted to some degree at all distances. During cataract surgery, we now have the option of improving two conditions at the same time – the cataract and your astigmatism. Watch the video to learn more and ask your doctor if it is an option for you.

What is presbyopia?

Presbyopia is when your eyes gradually lose the ability to see things clearly up close. As we age, the flexible lens inside our eyes stiffens. When wearing distance glasses, this stiffening hampers our ability to see up close. Through this same stiffening process, the lens also becomes cloudy. The cloudiness is what we call a cataract. Watch the video to learn more about presbyopia. If you would like to be less glasses-dependent when reading, ask your doctor if presbyopia reduction is an option for you.

Honestly, LASIK surgery is one of the best things I have ever done. The entire process only took about 15 minutes, and eliminated my dependence on contacts forever. No more sticking my fingers into my eye or making sure I have my contact case, fluid, or backup glasses with me every time I leave the house. That's life-changing! I definitely recommend Dr. Evans- Professional and experienced.
