Dr. Patel and her staff are the best of the best. I am so fortunate that I chose her to take care of the problems I had with my eyes. Will always be grateful for how she has taken care of my medical needs.
A Cataract is a clouding of our natural lens of the eye. Most cataracts are related to aging and are far more common in older people. Just like with a camera, our eyes contain a lens to help you to focus on things whether they are nearby or far away. To work well, the lens must be clear. As we age, the lens of our eye gradually becomes cloudy and forms a cataract.
Symptoms of Cataracts
- Painless blurring of vision
- Sensitivity to glare and light
- Double vision in one eye
- Poor night vision
- Fading or yellowing of colors
- Frequent changes in glasses or contact lens prescriptions
