Suffering from Cataracts? Get Relief in Manhattan!
Do you know how many people in the United States are affected by Cataracts? Cataracts have become so common in people over 60 that many eye doctors in New York now say developing cataracts is a natural part of aging. Over 20 million people in the USA have some degree of cataracts. If you have symptoms of cataracts like hazy eyesight, dull color vision, increased glare from lights – eyesight loss that is not helped by a new pair of eyeglasses – visit our optometrist in Manhattan to talk about treatment options for cataracts.
Cataract surgery is the most common cataracts treatment. It is safe and has an excellent success rate. Complications are rare, and the recovery period is usually uneventful. Dr. Alan Schlussel in NYC does cataract surgery co-management. When considering cataract surgery, it can be helpful to have the advice of a knowledgeable eye doctor who can determine whether you are a good candidate for eye surgery, discuss the pros and cons of cataract surgery, and provide post-operative care as well.
Cataracts continue to get worse over time, if untreated. The natural lens inside the eye undergoes metabolic changes as a person ages, and it gradually becomes increasingly clouded over. However, surgery cures cataract disease. The artificial intraocular lens (IOL) implanted in place of the natural crystalline lens will not develop a new cataract.
At your comprehensive eye exam in NYC we screen for cataracts. If you are over 40, we recommend having a complete eye exam every year. But if you or a loved one is suffering from symptoms of cataracts, book a cataract consultation at Alan B. Schlussel even if it is not time for your routine eye exam.
