Here at Glaucoma Consultants of St. Louis, one of our most commonly used services is our cataract surgery in Chesterfield. The reason this surgery is so common is that cataracts are highly common eye care issues, especially for older patients. As we grow older, our eyes become increasingly susceptible to a number of conditions, especially cataracts. You may be wondering: what exactly is a cataract? A cataract is the gradual weakening and clouding over of the lens of your eye. As we grow older, the lens of the eye naturally begins to change, and so cataracts are almost inevitable. As the cataract grows more advanced in its development, you may find it hard to read, drive, see at night, and eventually recognizing faces may even be difficult. You might find that your eyeglass prescription is changing quite frequently.
If you think you might have a cataract, you should schedule an appointment with the experts here at Glaucoma Consultants of St. Louis so that we can examine your eyes and determine the proper course of action based on your individual symptoms. If you do have a cataract, you
will be pleased to know that cataract surgery in Chesterfield, and cataract surgery in general, is known for being especially safe and highly effective. During cataract surgery, we will remove the damaged lens and replace it. Often, your eye sight after cataract surgery is even better than your eye sight was before the cataract developed. We can give you more details during your next visit with us.
