Cataracts most often appear in those Americans over the age of 40. These impairments of the eye are often age-related and result in blurred vision or temporary blindness. Fortunately, there are vision correction options available to you and the success rate for cataract surgery is as high as 98%.
Yet there are ways you can help to reduce your risk of developing age-related cataracts while you’re still in your youth. The lifestyle choices you make on a day-to-day basis can either increase or decrease your risk of cataracts.
Here are a few lifestyle changes you can make to maintain eye health and to avoid the need for future cataract and refractive eye surgery.
Many Americans only think to see their eye doctor or eye surgeon when they begin to experience blurred vision or light sensitivity. However, with the proper care and lifestyle changes you can help to reduce your risk of eye problems before they start. See your eye doctor regularly and discuss your options to help reduce your need for future cataract surgery.
Very professional and friendly. I have been here twice in the last two years and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Staff was informative and caring. They explained what to expect at every step of the procedure. Lots of caring and information.
The entire staff at MEI was very kind and professional. I highly recommend them for your eye care. Very friendly!
