Looking for help with Cataracts in Las Vegas? Imagine looking through a foggy, clouded window, and trying to make out what’s on the other side. Now imagine seeing that way every time you open your eyes. Cataracts, or clouding of the lens, not only creates an unsightly opaque eye, but also inhibits and obscures your vision. Cataracts can make it more difficult for you to do even the simplest activities, like drive a car, read, or recognize a friend or family member.
The good news is, most cataracts develop slowly and do not obscure your vision until they are more advanced. That said, cataracts, if left untreated, will advance and you’ll inevitably risk vision obstruction or even loss. That’s why Cataract Eye Care is of the utmost importance.
Early Cataract Detection
At Advanced Vision Institute, we believe that early detection of cataracts is imperative to proper treatment. That’s why we are currently the only office in Nevada that uses the HD Analyzer, a technologically advanced instrument that allows us to examine your eye more thoroughly than ever before and detect cataracts in their beginning stages. When we can detect cataracts early, it simplifies the cataract surgery and produces more successful results by creating a Cataract Care Plan.
Causes of Cataracts in Las Vegas
Cataracts in Las Vegas commonly develop due to age and injury to the eye. Some cataract problems are linked to a genetic predisposition, while others may be caused by related health conditions like diabetes. Eye trauma, prior eye surgery and long-term use of steroid medications may also increase the likelihood of developing a cataract.
Cataracts develop on the lens of the eye, which is located behind your iris, or the colored part of your eye. The function of your lens is to focus light and sharpen images. This process is obstructed by cataracts, which obstruct the light and cause a cloudier image.
