In Jacksonville, Florida, we see a lot of Baby Boomers and older patients whose vision is beginning to grow cloudy as part of the aging process. This cloudiness of the eye’s natural lens is called a cataract, and virtually every eye will develop the condition given time. Cataracts develop slowly, so many people aren’t aware of how much their vision is affected. But as the thickening of the cataract progresses, everyday activities such as reading, driving, and watching TV may become difficult. Without surgery, cataracts eventually lead to serious impairment or even blindness.
The good news is cataract surgery is simpler and more effective than ever, often requiring no stitches, scalpels, or eye patches. Our specialists at Bowden Eye & Associates are known for their expertise in this procedure, and many of our cataract surgery patients end up with better vision than they can ever recall having.
What Are You Waiting For?
Once a cataract has formed, surgery is the only way to restore clear vision; and while the thought of eye surgery may seem scary, there’s really no reason to put it off if your cataracts are bothering you. Cataract surgery is a simple, relatively painless procedure that can be done in a matter of minutes at our surgery center. In fact, it’s probably the safest, most effective surgery performed today, and it’s also the most common. More than 3 million people have it done every year! And at Bowden Eye & Associates we’re able to restore vision to 20/40 or better in 95% of our patients.
