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 Diagnosis & Treatment

If we diagnose you with cataracts, we may simply recommend a change of glasses, the use of sunglasses or even just using better lighting when you read. For the majority of patients, this is all it takes and the cataracts are not too bothersome. Your eye care doctor at Blink is happy to provide all the help needed in managing your cataracts so you can live a normal, healthy life.

For some patients, however, surgical removal is the best option. This is only suggested when the patient is unable to function day to day in their regular way due to impaired vision. Since cataracts do not usually harm your eye, it is possible to have surgery to simply remove them with no negative effects. This procedure is extremely safe and performed regularly in Canada – more than 350,000 cataract surgeries are performed here annually.

With cataract surgery, we remove the lens of the eye and replace it with an artificial lens. We take measurements for the size, shape and power of the lens for a perfect fit.
