Cataracts are a clouding of the natural lens of the eye. This clouding can cause your vision to become blurry or hazy and cause difficulty with night vision. Cataracts are a normal age-related change but research has shown that they can be worsened by smoking, ultraviolet light, and some medications.
We routinely evaluate patients for developing cataracts and refer them for cataract surgery when needed. Many patients choose to go to EYE SPECIALISTS OF INDIANA, in downtown Indianapolis. This cataract clinic is unique, in that a patient can have cataract surgery on both eyes on two consecutive days. So they make one trip (door to door transportation and lodging is offered for minimal fees). They are then scheduled a one-day post-operative visit in our office in Monticello.
