Care For Cataracts On Vancouver Island
Cataracts with Dr. Golemba Low Vision Eye Doctor & Member of the IALVS
Common cataract symptoms include:
- Blurred vision
- Double vision
- Poor night vision
- Sensitivity to light
- Fading of colors
Some people are not aware that they have a cataract until they have an eye examination. Vision can easily be restored by removing the non-cancerous cataract, with a simple surgical procedure.
Vision After Cataract Surgery
Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgeries performed in the US and the whole procedure usually lasts around 1 hour. It is important to realize that a patient who underwent cataract surgery will require glasses once their vision stabilizes.
