Cataracts are one of the most curable causes of vision loss, yet thousands of area residents’ continue to live with diminished vision simply because they don’t get an eye exam that can detect the presence of a cataract.
The doctors at Florida Eye Health, under the medical direction of Dr. Frantz, are offering free cataract evaluations at all five of our locations for NEW patients who are 55 and older to help debunk the myths about cataracts and remind people they don’t have to live with vision loss from cataracts.
According to Dr. Frantz, “A cataract is the clouding of the eye’s normally clear lens, blocking the passage of light needed for vision. They form slowly and cause no pain. Some stay small and hardly affect vision, but if the cataract does grow and begins to affect your vision, it can usually be removed with surgery.”
New techniques developed over the past decade have made cataract surgery one of the safest and most successful procedures available in terms of restoring quality of life to patients. The cloudy natural lens is replaced with an artificial lens to give the eye proper focusing power. In most cases, the improvement in the patient’s vision is profound.
So how do you know if you have a cataract? Dr. Frantz explains, “Some people notice a gradual painless blurring of vision, double vision in one eye or fading or yellowing of colors. When older patients notice sensitivity to glare and/or brightlight or have trouble driving at night, it is often caused by cataracts.” “The best time to have a cataract removed is when it starts to interfere with the things you like to do,” said Frantz.
