Diagnosis of Cataracts

Once you start noticing changes in your vision that are consistent with a cataract, then next step is obtaining an accurate diagnosis. Eye care providers, both optometrists and ophthalmologists, can accurately diagnose if a cataract is the source of your decrease in vision. While both eye care providers can diagnose a cataract, an ophthalmologist performs the actual cataract surgery. Though just my personal preference, I recommend meeting your surgeon (ophthalmologist) prior to the surgery to ensure you are comfortable with them !
