             ision  loss  Can  be  Prevented!   Loss  of  eye  sight  from  Cataracts  is  usually  preventable.

 With state-of-the-Art technology, your doctor can safely and comfortably remove cataracts and allow patients to enjoy better vision and resume the quality of life they enjoyed before cataracts developed.

Should you consider cataract surgery? To decide whether or not cataract surgery is right for you, a complete and thorough eye examination is necessary. There are several indications for cataract surgery, but rarely will a cataract need to be removed immediately or as an emergency. Because the procedure is elective, most cataract surgery can be scheduled at your convenience.

A few common reasons an individual chooses cataract surgery are:

Decreased vision - such as difficulty seeing street signs, or problems reading fine print.

Foggy vision - vision appears to have a film or cloud over it.

Halos around lights - from oncoming automobile headlights.

Difficulty driving at night - poor night vision or automobile headlights seem excessively bright.

Glare - difficulty seeing in brightly lit conditions such as with oncoming headlights, low sun angles, or on foggy/cloudy days.

Difficulty reading - or needing more light to see print

Poor ability to perform daily tasks - problems as reading medication instructions, failure to pass a driver’s visual examination, problems seeing to play cards, bowl or play golf are common.
