Are you experiencing foggy or blurry vision? Do colors appear dull or not sharp? If so, you may be experiencing cataracts. A cataract is a clouding of the eye's naturally clear lens. When the natural lens experiences this clouding effect, it can diminish vision quality. Cataracts can be extremely burdensome to people who have had clear vision most of their life. For complete cataract care in Maryland, visit the Bethesda optometric offices
of Drs. Ely and Cohen.
Cataracts are caused mainly by age, trauma, heredity, and exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Cataracts can also occur due to eye disease, after use of specific medication, or the result of uncontrolled diabetes. Your Bethesda eye doctor at Fulton Eye Care Center can let you know more about the common causes of cataracts, as well as warning signs of this eye condition. Cataract surgery is virtually painless and offers a quick recovery. During this procedure, the natural lens of your eye is removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens called an intraocular lens implant.
