Cataract Treatment in Denton, TX
What Is a Cataract?
Your eye has a clear lens through which light passes, allowing you to see. As you age, this lens slowly becomes cloudy, resulting in a cataract. For patients, this can cause a gradual reduction of vision and increase the glare from lights.
In younger adults, cataracts can result from an injury, certain medications, or illnesses such as diabetes. Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light may also play a role in the formation of cataracts. Studies have also shown that people who smoke have a higher risk of developing cataracts than non-smokers.
Cataracts usually develop without pain. Indications that a cataract may be forming are:
- Blurred or hazy vision
- Double vision
- Poor vision in bright light
- Seeing halos around lights
- Yellowish tinged vision
- Difficulty with night driving
Our Cataract Treatment Options:
Vision loss from cataracts can sometimes be improved with prescription glasses and contact lenses. However, if a cataract begins to make it too difficult for you to carry out your daily activities, your doctor may recommend surgery.
Cataract surgery is one of the most performed surgeries in the world and is an outpatient-based procedure. Through minimally invasive, no-stitch surgery, our ophthalmologists remove the clouded lens, and a new artificial lens is implanted in the eye. Cataract surgery successfully restores vision in the vast majority of those who have the procedure.
