Cataract Assessment & Management

A cataract is a common eye disease in which the lens of your eye, which is usually clear, becomes cloudy or opaque. For some people, cataracts are barely noticeable and do not require much attention; however, for others, the problem can become severe and require surgery. 

It's important to get your eyes tested regularly for cataracts because the average person with cataracts does not notice the symptoms. A visit to your optometrist can help diagnose the problem before it becomes severe. Patients with severe cataracts will notice a decrease in the clarity of their vision that is not fully corrected when they use glasses. Patients also report a loss of sensitivity to colour and shadows, as well as disturbing glares.

Cataract Assessment and Management

Cataracts are a clouding of the lens that usually happens slowly over a number of years. Your cataracts can be diagnosed at your full eye exam. If your cataracts are mild, your eye doctor will recommend some options for updating your glasses and, most importantly, your sunglasses so that you can prevent your cataracts from getting worse. If your cataracts are severe enough to affect your vision greatly then we will recommend cataract surgery.

Cataract surgery is a very common procedure that is performed by many surgeons in Calgary. The surgeon will simply replace the lens in your eye with an artificial lens so that you can see more clearly. After cataract surgery, you will likely need reading glasses which your doctors at Blink Eyewear will be happy to help you with!
