Middle Georgia Eye Care Providers Specializing in Cataracts

During your comprehensive eye exam at Vision Eye Group, our ophthalmologists and optometrists will dilate your eyes to widen your pupils and conduct a variety of tests to make an accurate cataract diagnosis. Our eye care providers examine every aspect of your eye to search for signs of cataracts.

If we discover a cataract, we can implement a personalized treatment plan to manage or remove your cataract. This starts by taking an assessment of any activity limitations you’re experiencing due to the cataract. If cataracts are severe, we may recommend surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cataracts

What are the symptoms of cataracts?

Usually, patients suffering from cataracts notice vision changes, including:

  • Blurry or dim vision
  • Seeing double
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Trouble seeing at night
  • Dull colors

If you are experiencing any of these vision symptoms, contact the team at Vision Eye Group.

How are cataracts formed?

As people age, proteins in the eye begin to break down, causing clouding in the lens. Aging is the most common cause of cataracts. In these age-related cases, cataracts develop gradually, and the patient may not notice vision issues for years. Cataracts can also form due to eye injuries, surgery, or diabetes.

How are cataracts treated?

Cataracts can only be removed through surgery. However, surgery may not be necessary if your cataract isn’t disrupting your daily activities. There are ways to slow the development of cataracts, including:
