Cataract Diagnosis & Treatment in Loveland

Book Appointment

No More Cloudy Days

If you are approaching middle-age and notice a cloudy “hue” affecting your vision, there’s a good chance it’s a cataract. Cataracts form naturally as your eye’s lenses begin to build up with proteins. By the time a person reaches their 70s, they have most likely experienced cataracts. Cataracts are not an alarming condition but they do require responsible eye care to remedy.

2020 EyeCare adult eye exams check for cataracts and measure their severity. Following your exam, we can discuss the best steps to take for correction. Like any eye surgery, we co-manage your experience until your eyes are healthy again.

A New Lens Life

Cataract surgery is the most practical way to see clearly again. The clouded, protein-covered lens is replaced with a clear synthetic one. This new lens reacts naturally to your eye and refracts light just as your original lens did.

Tiny incisions are made at the front of the eye and the original lens is removed. An intraocular lens is put in its place, and voila‒crystal clear vision!

Cataract surgery is an extremely common surgical procedure in the United States and has a success rate of over 97%. It has become so standardized that most procedures take less than 15 minutes per eye.

Expect to rest for 20-30 minutes after the surgery as the micro-incisions naturally heal.

The Causes of Cataracts

The leading cause of cataracts is quite simply old age. Proteins that naturally occur in the eye begin to break down and clump together, leaving a cloudy residue on the lens. Some other factors that influence the onset of cataracts are:

  • Family history of cataracts
  • Other medical conditions, specifically diabetes
  • An eye injury, surgery, or trauma
  • Overexposure to UV rays
  • Excessive smoking
  • Drinking too much alcohol
  • Consumption of certain medicines, like steroids
  • Obesity

Who Knew Prevention Looked This Good?

Studies have shown that exposure to UV rays correlates with cataracts. Protecting your eyes from the sun is one easy way to prevent (or at least delay) this eye condition. Our optical dispensary at 2020 EyeCare has a great collection of prescription sunglasses. Photochromic lenses in your everyday glasses are another great solution for reducing UV ray exposure!
