Many people never need to wear glasses or contacts again after cataract surgery!
Did you know that cataracts are one of the most commonly treated vision problems in the U.S. each year? At Vision Center of Lake Norman, we understand that the discovery of cataracts can be disconcerting, especially if they have begun to affect your ability to see. The good news is that there are several ways we can help you preserve your vision or restore your eyesight completely.
Cataracts are typically slow to progress and are often noted by a thin film that appears to cover the eye over time. Many people don’t notice cataracts during early formation, but begin to find their vision deteriorates as the cataracts become more severe. When you visit our clinic because you believe you have a vision concern or suspect you have cataracts, we’ll assess the severity of the problem and determine what can be done to prevent further progression.
Vision care is often the first step with cataracts, which includes wearing protective eyewear, especially in the sun, as well as wearing a brimmed hat when outside to shield UV rays. We may also recommend you quit smoking, since this is linked with the formation of cataracts. Depending on your unique situation, we may suggest cataract surgery, which can not only remove the cataracts fully, but also restore your vision completely. Many people never need to wear glasses or contacts again after cataract surgery!
