Glare at night caused by cataracts

Cataracts

Inside of the eye is a lens called the crystalline lens, this lens is clear and to some extend flexible. This lens is responsible for the focusing mechanism of the eye at near. As it ages it becomes dull in color and loses its flexibility which leads to accommodate (focus) lag. The older you are the more power you will need for reading at near.  After age 50 it tends to become stable as for the need for reading power. In your 60's your lens starts to become yellow and eventually will create glare, requiring cataract surgery. Come to us for a free cataract screening. We will give you an unbiased opinion. 


If you do require cataract surgery be aware that you will require a man-made intraocular lens to replace your crystalline lens. Cataract surgeons will give you options depending on your refractive error and needs. After surgery most likely your dependence on glasses or contact lenses will be less. Almost all patients may function without glasses. On the other hand, most patients will benefit from small corrections to enhance viewing and protection of coatings such as Crizal and UV protection.

Medical Anterior Segment Evaluation

The optometrist or the eye physician will look at the outside of your eye with a special microscope. The eye doctor will look at your cornea (the external part of your eye), the iris, and the crystalline lens.  The optometrist will be able to see the yellow color of the crystalline lens and some other opacities that "sit" on the lens. 

Medical Evaluation Of The Retina

A non-dilated fundus exam is also available using special instruments that view the back of the eye without dilation. Our Retinal Imaging System allows us to view your retina without dilation.
