Weehawken ophthalmology office
Here at Palisade Eye, we want you to have the highest level possible of eye health. That's why we recommend a yearly eye exam for all our valued customers. Just one of the eye diseases that can cause vision loss is cataracts. Our Weehawken ophthalmology office
will diagnose, evaluate, and treat cataracts. Early on, that can be done with glasses or contacts. But when corrective surgery is required, you can be confident that you're benefiting from the expertise and experience of our eye surgeon for a procedure that is effective and safe.
Cataracts can affect you at any age, but over half the cases of it are in those 65 and older. Heredity is a factor, and diabetes is also linked to developing cataracts, which are marked by a buildup of protein on the surfaces of your eye lenses, leading to blurred or cloudy vision. Early stages of the disease often produce no noticeable symptoms, however. Detection at that point is generally done as part of a scheduled annual comprehensive eye exam at our Weehawken ophthalmology office. When you do experience indications of cataracts, which may also include double vision, troubles with color perception, and problems driving at night, special corrective lenses will be prescribed to correct your vision. Because of the progressive nature of cataracts, however, for many people there will come a time when prescription lenses are just no longer enough. Corrective surgery at our Weehawken ophthalmology office
consists of removing your eye lenses and then replacing them with multifocal intraocular implants. This results in the restoration of clear vision at all distances. You will regain your independence and be able to do all the things that your reduced vision was preventing you from.
