Ophthalmologists can detect the presence of cataracts by taking a medical history and performing a comprehensive eye exam that includes an acuity test, a slit-lamp exam, and a retinal exam.

In the earliest stages of cataracts, a person may not notice changes in their visions or other symptoms. That is why annual exams are so important.

Note: Cataracts are more common than you might think. More than 24.4 million Americans over the age of 40 have been affected by cataracts. By the age of 80, more than half of Americans have experienced cataracts.

This month, we are hoping to create more awareness and educate people about one of the leading causes of vision loss in the world.

A cataract is a clouding or loss of clarity of the natural lens of the eye. Cataracts do not cause pain but can reduce the quality of vision. Cataracts can occur with age, trauma, use of certain medications, extensive sun exposure, and various other causes.

If you have any questions or want to get a checkup, please contact us and we will be happy to help you.
