Eye Care Treatment for Cataracts
Cataracts are a normal part of the aging process for many people. At Marshall EyeCare Physicians in Holmdel, our optometry staff is here to provide care for you before and after your cataract surgery.
What Are Cataracts?
Normally, the lens of the eye is crystal clear, allowing you to see what's in front of you without a problem. Cataracts are a clouding of the lens. They can cause a number of visual symptoms, including light and glare sensitivity, trouble seeing at night, seeing colors as yellow or faded, cloudy vision, double vision in one or both eyes, and difficulty concentrating due to visual issues.
Many people develop cataracts as a natural part of the aging process. If a family member has cataracts, the risk of developing them increases significantly. People who are diabetic, and people who have had eye surgery in the past are more likely to develop cataracts. Taking certain steroid medications can also increase the likelihood of cataracts.
When you come in for your appointment, our optometrist will examine your eyes and ask you about your symptoms. You'll work together to develop a treatment plan that makes sense for your current situation. You'll return to see our optometrist on a regular basis to discuss how your cataracts are progressing, and potentially make changes to your cataract treatment plan.
There are a few different options for cataract care. In the first stages of cataracts, it may be treated with a stronger eyeglass prescription. Strong lighting can also make it easier for people with cataracts to see well. While these lifestyle changes can help ease the symptoms of cataracts, they will stop the progression of the condition.
Most people with cataracts will need to have surgery to remove them. Cataract surgery is routine, safe, and provides nearly instant restoration of vision.
