Cataracts Explained in Bensalem, PA

Generally, cataracts are an unavoidable part of the aging process that initially occurs after 40 years of age. This is the age when the proteins of the lens of the eye typically begin to degrade or lump together. The cloudiness caused by cataracts gradually worsens and keeps light from arriving at the retina as it should. This clouding of the lens of the eye ultimately results in reduced vision, and potentially, total blindness if not detected in time and treated appropriately.

Our team is experienced in identifying and managing cataracts in the first stages and supporting our patients in effectively navigating advancing symptoms. At IC Laser Eye Care, our providers see patients with cataracts nearly daily. Developing cataracts is extremely common; in fact, cataract surgery is the leading surgery performed in the U.S. Almost two million adults get cataract surgery every year. Cataracts can form relatively slowly so patients who have the primary stages frequently don't know about it. Cataracts are a primary reason why getting complete eye exams at least every other year is critical to your overall eye health.

Contact IC Laser Eye Care at one of our convenient practice locations in Bensalem, PA, Philadelphia, PA, or Hamilton, NJ, or at Suburban Eye Associates in Huntingdon Valley, PA to schedule your comprehensive exam or learn how we could help you manage your cataracts.

After we establish that a patient has a cataract, we can begin to explain the various options for treatment. The treatments for cataracts are chosen according to the stage of the condition. Initially, most patients manage very well with new prescription lenses. However, those whose cataracts have progressed usually need a stronger option, like laser or traditional cataract surgery. Our team is committed to giving every one of our patients individualized care. Depending on the progression of the cataracts, we can treat cataract patients at any of our convenient locations, or if needed, opt for a referral to a trusted specialist.

The most common first symptom of a cataract is progressively dim eyesight that isn't made clear by a person's current glasses prescription. Often, patients start to realize they need brighter light to read. Other sight-related symptoms can include:

  • Reduced night vision
  • Seeing more glare or halos
  • Eyesight with a general yellowish tint

Cataracts aren't physically uncomfortable and are generally present for quite a while before they result in any vision problems. For most people, the condition starts to develop between the ages of 40 and 50; however, many people don't notice any cataract symptoms until reaching their 60s.

They are very professional and caring people.

I have been a patient of IC Laser on Knights Rd for the last 5 years and have always left satisfied and happy. I have gotten contacts, prescription glasses and eye check-ups and all of those services have been exceptional. Picking out glasses is not an easy thing because you want your glasses to look right with the shape of your face. Dianna the Optician is super nice, very knowledgeable and patient with me every time I visit. She has even made my 6 year old nephew feel confident and cool in his first pair of glasses! I definitely recommend checking this place out for all your vision needs.
