In today’s article we’re going to discuss what cataracts are, and how cataract surgery has the potential to drastically transform your life now and in the future. Cataract surgery is something that is to be thought about extensively before executing. Many has found solace in the surgery, and we’re here today to give you a few more facts that may help you make a decision about your eye care.
To begin it is extremely important that we discuss what exactly a cataract is. Cataracts happen when the lens in your eye that occurs naturally, becomes cloudy. This process can gradually happen over time, and it is extremely common that by the age of 80 over half of the nation’s population will have cataracts. The symptoms behind cataracts include blurred and cloudy vi-sion, dim and less vibrant colors, difficulty driving, and light sensitivity. The only known way cur-rently to restore the vision affected by cataracts is through surgery.
Recent Studies have shown that those who have undergone cataract surgery were shown to di-rectly correlate to reducing the risk of dying early. This study went even further by finding that 37% to 69% cataract suffers after surgery did not die from an accident, cancer or lung and heart disease. This can be attributed to the fact that their health was taken into consideration, and their vision was much better.
Cataract surgery doesn’t just have the potential to prolong your life, as mentioned previously in the above paragraph, I can also improve the quality of your life. With cataracts, it can be hard to enjoy your favorite activities as what you see and how long you see them becomes less and less vibrant. Cataract surgery can give you back the freedom of being able to see that you may not have had for a long time.
