Cataract Management

What Are Cataracts and How Are They Treated?

Cataracts are a gradual clouding of the eye lens, which causes blurry and altered vision. More common than people often think, cataracts can affect up to 80% of people, mostly in the later stages of life.

Our trained optometrists at Market Mall Optometry can quickly diagnose and treat your cataracts, including pre and post cataract surgery care. 

If you think you might have cataracts or general changes in your vision, contact Market Mall Optometry today!

What Are Cataracts Caused By? 

Cataracts are a clouding of the lens which may develop at any age, but is especially prevalent in seniors. Cataracts are caused by exposure to ultraviolet light, use of steroid medication, eye trauma, and an existing family history of cataracts. Surgery may be recommended if the clouding is so severe that it impairs vision and a patient's ability to perform everyday activities.

What Are The Symptoms of Cataracts?

Most cataracts develop gradually so you may not notice immediate changes in your vision. Some symptoms to watch out for include difficulty seeing at night, blurred vision, double vision, problems with glare, and eye sensitivity. Book a dilated eye exam with our optometrists to find out for certain if you have any early signs of cataract development.

How Are Cataracts Diagnosed?

At Market Mall Optometry, our accredited optometrists are qualified to diagnose cataracts through a comprehensive medical eye examination. This exam includes a cataract vision test, health and medication checkup, a visual acuity test, visual field testing, and an eye-health evaluation.

Our optometrists recommend that patients, especially those who are above the age of 40, should have a dilated eye exam at least once every two years so we can examine your lens for any signs of cataract formation. If a cataract is discovered and the clouding is disrupting your vision, we will refer you to a trusted and respected ophthalmologist for surgery.

Market Mall Optometry is happy to provide cataract management services including all pre and post cataract surgery care. If you notice changes in your vision or are experiencing any of the above symptoms, contact our office or call us at 403-286-4884 today.
