Is Your Vision Suffering from Cataracts?

Gradual changes in vision can often go unnoticed if you do not have regular eye exams. As your eyes age, your vision may be suffering from cataracts, a clouding of your lens inside the eye. However, you may be compensating for these vision changes or simply think that you have to live with inferior vision as you grow older.

You do not have to suffer from poor vision. Although cataracts affect most Americans by age 70, this is a treatable condition with cataract surgery. At Schein Ernst Mishra Eye we perform cataract surgery in our state-of-the-art surgery center located at our Harrisburg office to help patients restore their clear vision. Cataract surgery is considered a safe and effective procedure when performed by an experienced doctor.

An eye exam will detect the presence and severity of cataracts. It is quite common to have cataracts but still be able to live your life without them affecting your day-to-day life. However, cataracts will grow gradually over time. They can make it more difficult to drive, read, work, participate in sports and do hobbies. It will be up to you to decide when you want to improve your vision – and your quality of life – through cataract surgery.

While some people may have minimal symptoms, this can reduce your quality of life. Untreated cataracts may ultimately lead to complete loss of sight.
