Issues with glare or blurred vision?  You may have cataracts! 

 

A cataract is a cloudy or opaque area in the normally clear lens of the eye. Depending upon its size and location, it can interfere with normal vision.  Usually, cataracts develop in both eyes, but one may be worse than the other. 

 

Cataract treatment is based on the level of visual impairment they cause. If a cataract minimally affects vision, or not at all, no treatment may be needed. Patients are advised to have a regular check-up schedule.

When a cataract progresses to the point that it affects a person's ability to do normal everyday tasks, surgery may be needed.  Our doctors  at Oak City Vision Center are able to take care of this.  Schedule your comprehensive eye exam today!
