Cataract surgery is performed to treat cataracts. Cataracts can cause blurry vision and increase the glare from lights. If a cataract makes it difficult for you to carry out your normal activities, your doctor may suggest cataract surgery.
When considering cataract surgery, keep these questions in mind:
Can you see to safely do your job and to drive?
Do you have problems reading or watching television?
Is it difficult to cook, shop, do housework, climb stairs or take medications?
Do vision problems affect your level of independence?
Do you have difficulty seeing faces clearly?
Do bright lights make it more difficult to see?
If you have answered yes to any or all of these questions, call or email us at Northwest Eye Specialists for an appointment. Our dedicated cataract specialists will assess and then discuss the treatment options available to you.
