Common Myths about cataracts
Read & Share
Many patients ask us about how cataracts develop and what options there are for treatment. While some cataracts develop due to a specific cause (injury, diabetes, steroid use, prior surgery), in general, cataracts are a natural process of aging. A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens, which leads to blurriness of vision and glare than can not be corrected with glasses and/or contact lenses. Most often, the only solution is cataract surgery, which is a relatively simple and routine outpatient procedure. Talk to your eye doctor if you have any questions regarding cataracts.
