It's a normal part of aging for people to develop cataracts (haziness or clouding of the crystalline lens of the eye) in both eyes. When cataracts interfere with vision significantly, such as making night driving or reading difficult, they can be removed. Cataract surgery typically is performed on one eye at a time, separated by weeks or months between procedures.
But did you know that both eyes can be treated on the same day? Read all about it here:
Grossmont Vision Center Optometry's eye doctors are expert at diagnosing cataracts and advising patients about their options for improving their vision. If you or someone you know is concerned about cataract treatment, be sure to schedule an eye exam at GVCO and we will be glad to help you out!
