Your eye health is important, and it is important to monitor your overall eye health from time to time. It is recommended that individuals of all kinds schedule a checkup with their eye doctor about once a year or so to make sure that things are in order, but if you are at risk for developing an eye disease of any kind or if you are experiencing any strange symptoms, it is imperative that you meet with an eye doctor more often. There are plenty of different eye diseases that can afflict people, and cataracts are one of the many different eye diseases that we treat here at Heritage Eye Care. If you need Arlington cataract eye care, our staff can help.
Cataracts develop when the lens of the eye thickens. The lens of the eye, also known as the cornea, is the clear portion of the eye that rests directly over the pupil. As the lens thickens, it becomes cloudy and difficult to see through. The first signs and symptoms of cataracts often include a rapidly declining or changing vision. You may have cataracts if you find that you need to update your prescription lenses often. If you visit the same doctor or if you see us here at Heritage Eye Care regularly, then we will be able to tell you that the reason for these symptoms is due to cataracts. When it comes to Arlington cataract eye care, it depends on you and your specific needs. Early on, cataracts are typically treated with vision correction that meets the needs of your changing visual capabilities. If your lenses get particularly thick, then you may want to consider a cataract transplant surgery. This surgery removes your thickened cornea and replaces it with an artificial one that can provide clear vision.
If you believe that you may have cataracts, if you are at risk for developing cataracts, or if you already have cataracts, we here at Heritage Eye Care can help you monitor your symptoms and provide you with the necessary Arlington cataract eye care.
