Cataract Surgery in Harrisburg
Many adults suffer from vision loss due to Cataracts.
Your eye is very much like a camera. Just like a camera the eye has a lens which focuses objects on the retina (film). The information recorded on the retina is sent to the brain and voila, you have a picture.
As you collect birthdays your natural crystal clear lens, located in the interior of the eye, becomes cloudy. This normal aging process can cause blurred or foggy vision. You may experience light and glare sensitivity, problems identifying colors, and problems seeing up close as well as at a distance.
Cataracts, however, are not limited to the elderly. Pennsylvania eye surgeons of Schein Ernst Mishra Eye can assist you with any eye problem you have. In rare cases children have them: cataracts can be caused by injury, medications, and certain medical conditions such as diabetes. How quickly cataracts develop depends on the individual, so it is not possible to predict when surgery should be considered. Some cataracts develop from the edge to the center of the lens. If the cloudiness is not near the center you may not notice a visual problem. Other cataracts develop from the center causing eye problems with glare, reading, and distance vision.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms it is time for a thorough eye examination by your Harrisburg ophthalmologist (medical eye doctor). One of our highly trained doctors will be able to detect the existence and extent of a cataract as well as any other condition that may be interfering with our vision. If there is a problem with the retina, eye surgery or removal of the cataract may not result in any improvement in vision. This type of problem is something your ophthalmologist is trained to diagnose and treat.
