Cataract Co-Management

A cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye.The lens of the eye is located behind the pupil and the colored iris, and is normally transparent. As the clouding of the lens worsens, it begins to block and scatter light causing the vision to become blurry.

Cataracts most frequently afflict adults over the age of 45, but they can occur in people of all ages.During the evaluation of your eye health we will carefully examine your lens for signs of cataract formation. If a cataract is noticed and the clouding is causing visual disruption, Dr. Phillips will refer you to a trusted and respected surgeon for surgery, which is the only known cure for cataracts.The surgery is a delicate procedure, but it is one of the safest operations done today.
