what are Cataracts?
For most people, cataracts are simply a normal part of the aging process that usually develops after an individual reaches 40, the typical age when the proteins of the eye's lens can start to degrade or lump together. The fogginess resulting from cataracts gradually worsens and keeps light from hitting the retina correctly. This clouding of the eye's lens leads to vision impairment, and often, total blindness if not detected early and treated properly. Owing to advancements in ocular techniques and technologies, there are many solutions available. Call our team at Focal Point Vision in San Antonio, TX to schedule an appointment, and learn how we can improve your eye health.
