If you think your vision has changed over the past few months, be sure to call us for a cataract evaluation in Miami Beach. Vision changes could signal eye diseases such as cataracts or glaucoma. Cataracts can be caught early and treated at our office by checking the intraocular pressure in the eye. When the eye’s lens gets clouded, it can form a cataract. Certain medications and surgery can help cataracts and limit the chance of vision loss in the future. If cataracts become too clouded, those suffering from them may not be able to see while driving at night or read. Over time, the disease gets worse as vision gets interrupted. Stronger lighting and stronger eyeglass prescriptions can help, but if the problem progresses, cataract surgery is the best and safest option.
Besides a cataract evaluation in Miami Beach we also test for glaucoma. Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that can result in vision loss and damage to the optic nerve. It is caused by abnormally high pressure in the eye, and is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States today. Some vision changes come on slowly, so most patients don’t even realize that they are suffering from a condition that would require treatment. Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that affects the optical nerve. It can be debilitating, and may cause blindness and severe loss of vision. If you are experiencing vision loss, blurry vision or any other strange eye side effects, call today to make your first appointment for a checkup.
