• Is Cataract Surgery Right For You?

As we age, the lenses in our eyes may begin clouding and affecting our vision. The clouding of the lens is called a cataract and the more clouding there is, the more difficult it is for light to focus on the retina to create a clear picture. The clouding is due to the natural protein in our lens clumping together, and over time this clumping may increase to create more clouding. The more the cataract develops, the harder it is for the individual to see clearly.

The only way to remove cataracts is through cataract surgery. However, just having a small cataract present doesn't mean an individual should have surgery right away. The decision to have cataract surgery depends on how much the cataract is affecting the individuals vision and daily lifestyle. It is important to see your eye care provider on a regular basis to track any development and progression of cataracts and decide whether cataract surgery is right for you. Make an appointment with Dr. Silani today at http://www.bheyeguy.com for a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for cataract surgery.
