POLARIZED vs. TINTED

Polarized lenses have special glare-reducing features that reduce glare from hard surfaces, bright lights, water, and snow. While tinted lenses are great for reducing brightness, they don’t eliminate glare. Polarized lenses do this while providing wearers with dramatically improved visual comfort. Not only is glare a nuisance, it impairs depth perception and distorts your views and colors.

CATARACT FACTS

A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s natural lens, which lies behind the iris and the pupil and is the most common cause of vision loss in people over age 40 worldwide.

Factors associated with cataract development: Old age, ultraviolet radiation, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, prolonged use of corticosteroid and/or statin medications, past eye injuries or eye surgery, hormone replacement therapy, excess alcohol consumption, high myopia and family history.

Symptoms or signs you may have cataracts:

  • Light becomes too bright or glaring and colors become dull.
  • At night, oncoming headlights cause excessive glare.
  • Blurred or cloudy vision that can lead to blindness if left untreated.

Treatments:

The first line of treatment is to update your glasses to maximize your visual performance. We then will monitor your vision for changes as need. When your vision is decreasing you ability to pursue your daily activities, we will explore surgery as an option. Cataract surgery has a very high success rate and is very minimally invasive with a very quick recovery time. Please call or text our office to schedule an appointment if you are concerned about cataracts.
