Avoiding driving at night? June is Cataract Awareness month
- Posted on: Jun 3 2016
If you’re finding that you avoid night driving, or if glare is getting particularly annoying, you may be experiencing the development of cataracts. Your natural lenses within the eye become harder and less transparent with age, which is perfectly normal. A simple surgical procedure can be done to remove the aging lens and a replacement, called an intraocular lens or IOL, is implanted in its place.
See your eye care provider for a comprehensive eye exam regularly, which will reveal many different health issues, including cataracts.
Dr. Mahanti has an article that explains your surgical cataract removal options at Angie’s List. You can read the entire article here:
