Cataract Surgery

Cataract Surgery outcomes at Shore Eye Associate

Cataract is a clouding of the eye's lens. There is no pain associated with the condition but there are other symptoms, including

  • Blurred/Hazy vision
  • Glare symptoms
  • A feeing of a "film" over the eye
  • Trouble reading
  • Colors appearing dull

Most people develop cataracts simply as a result of aging, with the majority of cases occurring in people over the age of 55. Other risk factors include eye injury or disease, a family history of cataracts, smoking or use of certain medications.

A cataract may not need to be removed right away if your lifestyle isn't significantly affected. In some cases, simply changing your eyeglass prescription may help to improve your vision. Contrary to popular belief, a cataract does not have to be "ripe" to be removed. However, once you are diagnosed with a cataract, we need to monitor your vision regularly for any changes. When a cataract causes bothersome vision problems that interfere with your daily activities, cataract surgery may be necessary.
