Eye exams are highly recommended for everyone, and it is especially important to remember to schedule your annual eye exams every single year. Anyone is capable of developing an eye disease, as well as vision impairment problems. By seeing your eye doctor on a regular basis, you can help to identify even the early stages of eye problems or other conditions and get the treatment that you need before the issue gets any worse. One condition that may appear as if it is a vision impairment problem but is actually a different kind of conditional together is the development of a cataract. Cataracts essentially develop when the lens of your eye becomes thick, and we here at Yandell Eyecare can help provide you with the comprehensive care that you need, including Morristown cataract surgery if the condition persists.
As stated above, cataracts develop when the lens of the eye becomes thicker over time. During the earlier stages of this particular condition, the symptoms that you may be experiencing might be incredibly similar if not identical to that of a worsening case of nearsightedness. In much the same way, cataracts are treated like nearsightedness during the earlier stages as well. This means that your cataracts will be treated by the application of magnified lenses, or prescription lenses, that will allow you to see clearly despite the worsening condition. As your cataracts grow worse however, you may not be able to see nearly as well even if you happen to have prescription lenses on. As cataracts become thicker, they become much more difficult to see through, and in a much different way then nearsightedness will cause. Nearsightedness generally makes things blurry because the shape of your cornea is different, but cataracts prevent you from seeing well because as the cornea becomes thicker over time it begins to resemble trying to look for a fogged or clouded window. This is when you need to consider getting eye surgery. Here at Yandell Eyecare we can provide you with the consistent care that you need as well as with any Morristown cataract surgery as well. If your cataracts are particularly advanced, you can undergo laser surgery that will remove your thickened lenses and replace them with artificial ones that will be able to provide you with crisp and clear vision once again.
In some cases, by continually prescribing prescription lenses, cataracts and be treated in a noninvasive manner. But as cataracts grow worse and develop even further, you may need surgery in order to be able to see clearly, otherwise you may end up becoming blind. With Morris town cataract surgery, you can easily correct this particular condition and restore your eyesight. If you happen to have cataracts or are at risk for developing this particular disease, then please call us here at Yandell Eyecare and get the care that you need.
