Cataract

Please move the slider from left to right to see the effects of Cataracts.


Description
A cataract is well known, but what is not well known, is that it cannot be diagnosed by looking at someone’s eye without the appropriate diagnostic equipment, so your ECP will give you advice. Cataracts are the hazing and milking up of one’s sight, which affects both distance and near vision. Cataracts have many different forms and types and caused by many different factors. Certainly the most common is the central hardening and opacification of the lens as a result of age and exposure to UV radiation.

Causes
Numerous, from age, genetics, diabetes, trauma and the use of chronic medication – to name a few.

Treatment
Wonderful success with lens extractions and the implanting of a new silicon lens, as performed by the ophthalmic surgeon. Spectacle correction often required following this surgery.
