Cataract Exam & Management

Cataracts – A Normal Sign of Aging

The lenses inside the eyes becomes cloudy with age. These aging changes are completely normal and are known as cataracts. Everyone will eventually get cataracts in time, but people develop them at different rates. By age 65, there is a 50% chance of developing a cataract. By age 75, it climbs to 70%.

Symptoms of Cataracts

When cataracts are just starting, you may not experience any symptoms at all. Symptoms of advanced cataracts include blurry vision that can not be corrected with a change in eye glasses, dimming of colors and glare or halos around lights at night. Night driving may become more difficult. Once the vision becomes problematic, Dr. Macha and his associates will refer you to an ophthalmologist for cataract surgery to replace the old cloudy lens with a clear synthetic intraocular lens and co-manage your aftercare.

Macha Eye Care is happy to answer any questions you may have about your eyes and cataracts. Schedule an appointment today.

Cataracts are a fact of life, but there are a few things that may help to delay their onset. Exposure to UV light can accelerate cataract development. Make sure you always wear sunglasses with 100% UVA and UVB protection when you are outside, particularly on a sunny day. Studies have shown that smoking can lead to earlier cataract formation and more rapid progression.

Restoring Your Vision With Cataract Surgery

In the past, people would wait until their cataracts were very bothersome or “ripe” and their vision was poor before having surgery to remove them. But today’s cataract surgery is a safe and routine procedure. When it is time for you to have cataract surgery, your optometrist at Macha Eye Care will refer you to an ophthalmologist, an eye surgeon, that specializes in the procedure.

The surgeon uses ultrasound to break up and remove the old, cloudy lens and replaces it with a new, clear, synthetic intraocular lens (IOL). The procedure only requires a local anesthetic and takes approximately 10-15 minutes. Postoperative care includes prescription eye drops for a few weeks in most cases. Following cataract surgery, most patients are delighted with the significant improvement in their vision and many only need glasses for reading. Most newer IOLs offer UV protection, but because of the increased amount of light to your eyes after cataract surgery, it is important to wear sunglasses afterwards.
