Like gray hair, cataracts are normal part of aging and are extremely common. Nearly 4 million cataract surgeries are performed in the US each year. Although cataracts can’t be prevented, they can be treated safely through surgery with advanced laser and lens options.

How do you know if you have cataracts?

Not all cataracts produce the same symptoms but usually the first sign is the need for more-frequent prescription updates for your glasses or contact lenses. In addition you may experience:

  • Cloudy or blurry vision
  • Colors seem faded, yellowing of vision
  • Glare
  • Headlights, lamps, or sunlight appear too bright
  • Halos around lights
  • Poor night vision
  • Double vision or multiple images in one eye
Cataracts will diminish the appearance of bright vivid colors

If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms above or have been diagnosed with cataracts by your regular eye doctor, schedule a consultation with Dr. Shamie and learn about how we can help restore the vision of your youth.
