Cataracts are progressive conditions that can cause a clouding over an individual's lens that interferes with the way that light passes through the retina and is processed by the brain. Double vision, blurry or fuzzy vision, and light sensitivity are often signs of cataract development. Other symptoms may include:

  • Frequent change of prescription lenses
  • Complications seeing at night or in bright sunlight
  • Halos around objects
  • Significant decrease in vision
  • Difficulty reading at near or far distances

Cataracts can develop for a number of reasons, including age, smoking, medical conditions, genetics, diabetes, and eye trauma. Patients suffering from glaucoma, UV radiation, and poor nutrition can also develop cataracts. While cataracts can occur at any time, they typically develop in individuals who are over the age of 60. More than 50% of people who are 60 and older have developed at least 1 cataract.

When you come to Lugene Eye Institute, we can determine the best course of action to help you regain your sight. For some people, the cataracts may not be bothersome enough to call for surgery; however, most cases require some surgical treatment.

Cataract surgery does not necessarily harm your, eye so the removal of the cataract could potentially restore almost clear vision. Your physician can help determine which procedure may be right for you. Contact Lugene Eye Institute to speak with our experienced Glendale cataract specialist today!
