Many Factors Contribute to Cataract Development

What are cataracts?

Cataracts are a clouding of the lens of the inside of the eye. The internal lens of the eye is responsible for our ability to focus from distance to near until our early forties. The lens also acts as a ultra violet filter for the retina in the back of the eye.  Over time, typically during late fifties and beyond, cataract development begins. The symptoms of cataract can be: decreased best corrected vision, increased glare, and trouble with dim lighting.

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is a relatively routine procedure in which the natural lens is removed through a small incision in the cornea, and an artificial lens is inserted in its place. Some factors that contribute to cataract formation are: age, excessive uv exposure, smoking, diabetes, and genetic predisposition.  It is important that you are evaluated for the presence of cataracts prior to having Lasik surgery.
