“Know Your Cataract Eye Q”
Cataracts are a natural part of aging, and we’re all at risk of developing them. So it’s important to arm yourself with the right data to help you make informed decisions. A cataract is a cloudiness of the lens in your eye that prevents light from being focused clearly on the retina, which can impair your vision over time. For many people, cataracts also impact their lifestyle by preventing them from doing the everyday things they love. But you have options. Eye Surgeon, Dr. Cathleen McCabe and Sharon Ulissi, who once suffered from cataracts, join us to discuss cataracts and cataract surgery. Cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed surgeries in the U.S. and modern cataract options, including advanced technology intraocular lenses, can correct eye conditions like astigmatism at the same time as cataract surgery.
