If your vision has become blurred and you are having trouble seeing under certain lighting conditions, including night driving, you may be developing cataracts. At our Spare Pair Vision Center, patients are able to receive cataract treatment Whittier Oaks and other eye care.
When a patient is diagnosed with cataracts it means that in one or both eyes the natural lens of the eye is becoming clouded. There can be many reasons that cataracts develop, but they do often develop after a patient is over age 60. Cataracts are quite common, and can be easily treated with laser eye surgery during which time the clouded natural lens of the eye is replaced with a man-made lens. This surgery is extremely safe and effective, and is performed on an outpatient basis, with the eye surgeon using a laser. However, many patients do not want to get cataract surgery when they are first diagnosed, and if their vision is still correctable with prescription lenses. At this point, our optometrist can provide you with cataract treatment Whittier Oaks which will consist of prescribing new lens prescription so that our cataract patient can see clearly again, and monitor the condition so that our patient will know when he or she should seek out an eye doctor for laser surgery. Our optometrist can even refer you to an ophthalmologist who specializes in this area of care. When a patient has cataracts, they often experience blurred vision when watching TV or when trying to do certain tasks. They also find that they cannot see as well in certain lighting conditions. If you find that you are having trouble seeing at night in order to drive, you will want to come to our vision practice for a comprehensive eye exam. Cataracts can be easily diagnosed by our eye doctor and treated either with new lens prescriptions or with laser cataract surgery.
