---- Frequently Asked Questions ----

What is a cataract and when does it need treatment?
Cataracts are clouding of the eye's naturally clear lens, resulting in a gradual blurring of vision. Patients may also notice double vision in one eye, fading or yellowing of colors, sensitivity to glare and/or bright light, or difficulty driving at night. Cataract surgery has advanced tremendously through the years and is a very successful procedure. The best time to have a cataract removed is when it starts to interfere with your quality of life.

My parent has macular degeneration.  Am I at risk?
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of visual impairment for individuals age 75 and older. While there is no cure, newer treatments are offering hope. AMD is a progressive disease affecting the macula, which is the center of the retina lining the back of the eye. AMD gradually destroys sharp, central vision. Regular eye exams are imperative, especially those with a family history of AMD. Early detection and treatment is the best defense against losing your vision.

How do I know if I have glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a condition in which the optic nerve is damaged. It can be associated with elevated pressure within the eye and can potentially lead to blindness. Unfortunately, most people who have glaucoma are relatively asymptomatic and do not notice symptoms until the disease is at a relatively advanced stage. The good news is that vision loss from glaucoma can be prevented if it is detected early and treated appropriately. The key is a good thorough ophthalmologic exam.

How often should someone with diabetes have an eye exam?
Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of legal blindness among working-age Americans. Unfortunately, one third of those diagnosed with diabetes do not receive the annual dilated eye exams crucial in detecting problems early - when things are most treatable. Therefore, if you have diabetes, get a dilated eye exam every year. Each year, between 12,000 and 24,000 people lose their sight due to diabetes. Early detection with annual exams could prevent this loss.
