What is a Cataract?
Identifying Symptoms of
Cataracts in Your Eyes
A cataract is an impediment to your vision due to the clouding of the normally clear lens behind the pupil. If you are experiencing cloudy vision, difficulty seeing at night or general discomfort with bright lights, you may be in need of cataract surgery. Cataracts, an eye disease, develop over time, and you may not even realize the change in your vision.
Types of Cataracts
Senile or age-related cataracts are the most common type of cataract. This disease is natural with aging and it’s caused by the gradual thickening or clouding of the lens behind your pupil. As we age, our vision can start to get cloudy, as if we are looking through a cloudy window all the time. Fortunately, senile cataracts are treatable. Furthermore, senile cataracts are the world’s leading cause of treatable blindness.
We understand it can be scary to find out your newborn child has an eye disease. At Moses Mouser & Associates, our dedicated eye specialists will put your baby’s health first.
Sometimes the cataract removal procedure causes a side effect called posterior capsule opacification, or secondary cataracts. After the removal, scar tissue may be present that causes the cataract symptoms to come back. Fortunately, there is a solution; a non-invasive procedure called YAG laser capsulotomy can be performed to correct the secondary cataract and improve your vision.
