Cataract Testing & Treatment

Cataract Testing & Treatment in Chula Vista

When loss of vision occurs in those over 40 years of age, chances are it’s from the development of cataracts. As one of the most common eye ailments, cataracts currently affect more than 22 million people nationwide. They often start with slightly blurred vision due to a clouding in the eye’s lens and eventually lead to permanent blindness. Our beloved doctors, Dr. Robert L. Evans, OD and Dr. Marilyn A. Carter, OD, have been in the optometry field for over 30 years and are skilled in both cataract treatment and testing in Chula Vista.

Common Symptoms Include Reduced, Blurry & Clouded Vision

Eye treatment
While there are many different forms of this disease, the most frequent symptoms of this awful condition include:
  • Light sensitivity
  • Frequent changes of your eye prescriptions
  • Color vision changes
  • Blurred or cloudy vision
  • Double vision in one eye
  • Reduced vision at night
Being aware of these symptoms, along with regular cataract testing performed during your routine eye exam, will help prevent further degeneration of the lens. With cataracts, the most important thing that you can do is reduce your risk factors through proper prevention. Some things that you can do to prevent their formation include:
  • Wear constant eye protection outside
  • Discontinue smoking
  • Reduce your blood pressure
  • Reduce your alcohol consumption
  • Increase your exercise level
If you’ve been diagnosed with this condition, the main cataract treatment is surgery, which usually involves the replacement of your clouded lens with a new intraocular lens.
