Do I have a cataract?
If you notice subtle changes in your vision – like requiring a lot of light to read or no longer feeling safe driving at night due to glare – you might have an early cataract. You may be wondering if it is bad enough to consider surgery, and if so where to even start that process.
First, visit your eye doctor so that he or she can examine your vision and the health of your eyes. This will include a review of your medical history to uncover any other vision or medical eye problems you may have. If you are diagnosed with cataracts, Oklahoma Medical Eye Group offers the most advanced cataract surgery combined with the best cataract laser and implant options. If you do have cataracts, rest assured OMEG has the technology that is right for you.
Second, once you are diagnosed with a cataract, think about your vision goals after cataract surgery. Many people do not realize there are numerous vision correction options available to them at the time of cataract surgery. Think about it this way. Cataracts are basically a clouding of the natural lens in the eye. When we remove the cloudy lens, we can replace it with a basic implant, an implant that can correct astigmatism and distance vision, or an implant that includes distance and near vision correction. Yes, that is right! Today’s technology allow you vision correction options! At OMEG, we do not think everyone is interested or even needs vision correction or a specialty implant lens. We know that only by learning your unique needs and vision goals can we recommend the correct treatment for you!
