What Are Cataracts?
Imagine your eye’s natural lens as a clear window, allowing light to pass through and images to form on your retina. Cataracts gradually cloud this window, blurring your vision. This common age-related condition occurs when proteins clump together, creating opacity within the lens. As the cataract develops, your vision becomes increasingly hazy, colors fade, and tasks like reading and driving become challenging.
Causes and Risk Factors
The following factors can increase the likelihood of developing cataracts:
- UV radiation
- Family history
- Previous eye injury or inflammation
- Certain medications
- High blood pressure
- Excessive alcohol consumption
- Poor nutrition
- Prolonged corticosteroid use
Cataract Surgery for Improved Quality of Life
While cataracts are a natural part of aging, they can significantly impact your quality of life. Fortunately, cataract surgery can restore clear vision.
Our skilled surgeons gently remove and replace the clouded lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). This swift and precise surgery can significantly enhance your vision, allowing you to see the world with renewed clarity.
After cataract surgery, some individuals may experience a secondary vision change known as posterior capsule opacification (PCO). PCO occurs when the capsule behind the implanted IOL becomes hazy, affecting vision quality. A painless and quick procedure called YAG capsulotomy can easily address this common occurrence.
ReFocus Eye Health’s skilled surgeons are dedicated to restoring your vision and enhancing your quality of life, allowing you to once again embrace every moment with clarity and confidence.
