Cataracts are a Leading Cause of Blindness

Cataracts are the leading cause of reversible blindness worldwide. Typically, cataracts develop over many years without any major signs and gradually impair vision to a level where performing routine tasks becomes difficult, if not impossible.Community Eye Center in Port Charlotte, Florida, is the leading center in cataract surgery. There is no reason why you should have to live with cataracts when we offer various established and proven interventions to improve your eyesight.

What Causes Cataracts?

Most commonly, cataracts are caused by ultraviolet light from the sun over decades. The condition damages the crystalline proteins of your natural lens, which causes them to lose transparency and become opaque and cloudy, resulting in blurry or cloudy vision. Other leading causes of cataracts include:

  • Genetic conditions
  • Previous eye surgery
  • Medical conditions such as diabetes. High blood sugar diffuses into an eye's aqueous fluid and damages the lens's crystalline fibers.
  • Prolonged use of steroids leads to cataracts.
  • Other eye conditions can also cause cataracts through inflammation or decreased blood circulation to an eye.  

Our eye physicians will help you access the risk factors and offer solutions that prevent or treat cataracts.

How is a Cataract Removed?

Surgery is the only way to remove cataracts. The procedure entails:

Anesthetic is administered through an injection or an eye drop to eliminate pain. In addition, mild sedation is administered.

  1. A tiny incision is made in a front tissue of an eye called the cornea. Removing the cataract is a delicate procedure requiring careful cuts and extraction of the damaged lens.
  2. The cataract is removed through phacoemulsification. Phacoemulsification turns the cataractous lens into an emulsion using ultrasound energy. Once the cataract is removed, a synthetic intraocular lens is placed into an eye where the cataract used to be, which restores your vision.

Worry not! The Community Eye Center provides the best, straightforward cataract surgery with our ophthalmologists in Port Charlotte.
