Symptoms You Have Cataracts
Cataracts are extremely common in older individuals. They develop over time as the lens becomes cloudy and opacified, causing blurry vision. The following can be symptoms indicating your cataracts are becoming visually significant:
- You see glare or halos around lights, especially at night.
- You are having increasing difficulty seeing at night when you drive.
- You can no longer see well enough to read or watch TV.
- Colors appear faded and/or you have noticed blurry vision.
Cataract Surgery Co-Management
Cataract surgery is the most common surgery performed in the United States. Although there are risks with any surgery, our office works with some of the best surgeons in central Kansas.
Prior to surgery, our doctors will ensure the surface of your eye is healthy enough for cataract surgery and can treat any ocular surface disease prior to seeing your surgeon. This ensures that you have the best possible visual outcomes with cataract surgery.
Following your surgery, our doctors are able to co-manage your post operative care. We routinely see patients for their follow ups, monitoring the healing process and helping them achieve their best vision.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) affects the retina, which is responsible for sharp central vision needed to see straight ahead of you. This common eye disease is typically asymptomatic until vision loss occurs. Therefore, it is extremely important to get screened for AMD with EyeCare Associates of Salina on a yearly basis.
