Understanding Cataracts

Cataracts are a common age-related condition that affects the clarity of the lens in your eye, leading to blurred vision and difficulty seeing clearly. While cataracts are a natural part of aging, they can significantly impact your quality of life if left untreated. At Kings Highway Vision Center, we specialize in diagnosing and managing cataracts to help you maintain optimal vision and quality of life.

Comprehensive Cataract Evaluation

When you visit Kings Highway Vision Center for a cataract evaluation, you can expect thorough and comprehensive care from our experienced optometrists. Our evaluation process includes:

  1. Visual Acuity Testing: We’ll assess your visual acuity to determine the extent of your vision loss and how it’s impacting your daily activities.
  2. Slit Lamp Examination: Using advanced diagnostic equipment, we’ll examine your eyes closely to detect the presence of cataracts and evaluate their severity.
  3. Dilated Eye Exam: By dilating your pupils, we can get a better view of the lens and other structures inside your eye to assess the presence and progression of cataracts.
  4. Discussion and Treatment Options: After evaluating your eyes, our optometrists will discuss their findings with you and recommend the most appropriate treatment options based on your individual needs and preferences.

Why do cataracts form?

Cataracts develop when the eye’s normally clear lens, located behind the iris, begins to “cloud up.” Cloudiness occurs when the proteins inside the lens clump together, blocking light from reaching the light-sensitive retina at the back of the eye. When light cannot reach the retina, it is unable to clearly interpret what we “see” so it can send those signals to the brain. As a result, vision becomes dimmer and colors become less vibrant. Cataracts can occur in one eye or both eyes, and they tend to occur in older people, although they can also be present at birth or they may be caused by trauma or by prolonged use of some types of medications. They’re also more common among people who have diabetes.

Do I need to have my cataracts removed?

That depends on how clouded the lenses are and how well you can see and function with your cataract in place. Cataract evaluations can help determine whether you can wait to have surgery to remove your cataracts or whether having them removed right away will have a significant impact on your quality of life.

How are cataracts removed?

Cataract removal is a very safe procedure, and it’s often one of the most commonly performed procedures in the U.S. It uses tiny incisions on the side of your eye to enable a special instrument to gently break apart and remove the clouded lens and replace it with an artificial intraocular lens- or IOL- so you can see more clearly.

What is the post-op recovery period like?

During your recovery period, you’ll need to have eye exams to ensure the lens is seated properly and to ensure you don’t develop an infection or other complication. Kings Highway Vision Center provides state-of-the-art individualized follow-up care to ensure you have the best visual outcomes possible.

Advanced Cataract Treatment Options

At Kings Highway Vision Center, we offer a range of advanced treatment options to address cataracts and improve your vision. Depending on the severity of your condition and your lifestyle goals, we may recommend:

  • Cataract Surgery: If cataracts are significantly impacting your vision and quality of life, cataract surgery may be necessary to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with a clear intraocular lens (IOL). Our experienced ophthalmologists perform state-of-the-art cataract surgery using the latest techniques and technology to ensure optimal outcomes and rapid recovery.
  • Premium IOLs: In addition to traditional monofocal IOLs, we offer premium IOL options that can correct astigmatism and provide enhanced near, intermediate, and distance vision, reducing your dependence on glasses after surgery.
  • Lifestyle Adjustments: In some cases, lifestyle adjustments such as changes in eyeglass prescription or the use of magnifying devices may help improve your vision and quality of life without the need for surgery.
