JUNE IS CATARACT AWARENESS MONTH!

A Cataract is a clouding of the eye’s lens which blocks or changes the passage of light into the eye.  Unlike many eye diseases, however, vision loss due to cataract can be restored. Cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the United States and has a 95 percent success rate. There are currently more than 24 million Americans age 40 and older who have cataract. 

Cataracts generally does not cause pain, redness or tears. However, these changes in your vision may be signs of cataract:

~Blurred vision, double vision, ghost images, the sense of a "film" over the eyes
~Lights seem too dim for reading or close-up work, or you are "dazzled" by strong light.
~Changing eyeglass prescriptions often. The change may not seem to help your vision.
~You may sometimes notice the cataract in your eye. It may look like a milky or yellowish spot in the pupil (the center of your eye is normally black).

Call us at 402-215-2020 to schedule your yearly exam, especially if you or a loved one has a cataract.
