Cataracts refer to the cloudiness that can occur on the lens of the eye. Cataracts are most commonly found in older adults. This is the leading cause of loss of vision among people over forty years old. Cataracts are characterized by a progressive impact on your vision. It may begin as a blurring, intensity of light and sun, and dullness in colors. It may appear as though you are looking through a piece of cloudy glass. Symptoms will continue to worsen if left untreated.
There are three types of cataracts that people can develop.

Early cataracts are typically treated with glasses, bifocals, or other visual aids. These treatments are non-invasive and can improve your vision. However, if your cataracts are more severe or have a significant impact on your vision, cataract surgery may be required to improve your vision. In this procedure, the surgeon will remove the cloudy lens and replace it with an artificial lens, which eliminates the cloudiness. With successful surgery, all of the cloudiness will be removed and you will have clear vision again.

After cataract surgery, it is important to allow the appropriate recovery time. Immediately after surgery, you will wear an eye shield to protect your eye and help it to heal. You may be able to remove the shield several hours after surgery. When the shield is first removed, your vision may be blurry or distorted. This is normal. Your eye will need to adjust to the new artificial lens in your eye. Most people find their vision to be clear after several hours. You will also have a follow-up appointment the day after your surgery to ensure that there are no complications.
Cataract surgery costs vary based on many factors, including your medical insurance coverage. The cost of surgery before insurance can vary in range per eye depending on the time of year. Some periods will provide patients with additional discounts. Contact us now to find out how to save money and fix your vision!
As more research is being done into effective treatment approaches, it is likely that cataract surgery will become more financially accessible to patients. It is important to speak with a representative from your insurance company to determine what coverage is included and what, if any, out-of-pocket expenses you will have.
