Treating Cataracts With Small Incision Cataract Surgery
Q. What Is A Cataract ?
A : - Clouding Of The Lens Of The Eye, Usually Caused By Aging, Trauma, Corticosteroid Use, And/Or Radiation.
Q. How Is A Cataract Diagnosed ?
A : - Most Cataracts Develop As Part Of The Aging Process, But May Be Present At Birth (Congenital) Or Result From An Injury, Systemic Disease (Diabetes), Or Corticosteroid Use. Using Specialized Equipment, Cataracts As Well As Other Eye Diseases Are Diagnosed During A Complete Eye Examination. The Mere Presence Of A Cataract Does Not Indicate The Need For Surgery. Some Cataracts May Be Slow Growing, And For A Period Of Time, Stronger Glasses Can Correct Vision.
Some Cataracts Develop More Rapidly Than Others, And Your Eye Doctor Can Monitor Changes In Vision And Cataracts With Periodic Eye Examinations.
