What You Should Know About Cataracts

As we get older, chemical changes occur causing the lens to become cloudy, forming what we call cataracts. A cataract is a painless, gradual clouding of the normally transparent crystalline lens inside the eye. Contrary to popular belief, they are not caused by eyestrain or wearing improper glasses. However, when they develop, light transmission through the eye becomes increasingly scattered, causing vision clarity to decrease.

If you have recently been diagnosed with cataracts, you're in good company. They are one of the most common and treatable causes of vision loss in the world. Poor vision from cataracts affects 60 percent of all people over 60. In fact, over one million Americans have cataracts removed every year.

Virtually all of our cataract patients regain their vision.

That's right. At Bennett & Bloom Eye Centers, we use the most advanced-and safe-testing and surgical techniques available, so you do not have to live with the vision loss associated with cataracts.

We will strive to help you achieve the best attainable vision with as little dependency on corrective lenses following surgery as possible. Our success rate with vision improvement in cataract surgery patients exceeds 99%. Many of our patients report vision improvement as fast as one day after surgery. Some even report having better vision than they can ever remember. Read more.
