What are Cataracts?

A clouding of the eye lens that makes your vision seem foggy or hazy is a cataract. Most develop slowly, and don’t exhibit symptoms early on. But with time, cataracts will hinder your vision. Those living with cataracts must ensure that their contact lenses or glasses are the correct prescription, use more light to see, limit their nighttime driving, and other practices to get the most out of their vision. This type of self-care can help your situation for the time being, but when your vision loss begins to detrimentally interfere with daily life, it is time to see the eye doctor.
It is also important to make an appointment for an eye exam if you notice any changes in your vision. If you develop sudden vision changes, such as double vision or flashes of light, sudden eye pain, or sudden headache, see your doctor right away.

Diagnosing & Treating Cataracts

If you believe you are suffering from symptoms of cataracts, Dr. Davis will perform a few tests and checks to diagnose you. Using your past medical history, a visual acuity test, a slit-lamp exam, a retinal exam, and other factors, Dr. Davis and his staff can provide you with answers. We also treat cataracts, and offer a few different options for our patients. Fortunately, cataract surgery is generally a safe, effective procedure, so call today if you would like to remedy yours!
