When you hear the word “cataract”, typically you think of your parents and grandparents. While what a cataract is hasn’t changed, the treatment options are as different as the device you’re reading this article on to the black and white box people viewed the moon landing.
What Is A Cataract?
A cataract is the clouding of the natural lens of your eye. You can be born with cataracts, or they can form after certain diseases or eye injuries. However, they are a typical “age-related” change. If you get grey hair and wrinkles, you will eventually get cataracts. The term “age-related” is somewhat misleading, as many people form cataracts in their 40’s and 50’s and these cataracts progress rapidly and can cause extremely blurred vision.
The Right Time For Cataract Surgery
You will know that it is time for cataract surgery when your cataracts begin to impede your vision and affect daily life. Some may find it challenging to drive at night or read fine print. Others notice that they are bothered by glare or their color perception may deteriorate. Every person and eye is unique. When your blurry vision becomes an obstacle to your lifestyle, it is time to call Magruder Laser Vision, Central Florida’s premier cataract and vision correction facility, to learn more about MLV Advanced Laser Cataract Surgery.
