    Am I a Candidate for Cataract Surgery?

    If you have been diagnosed with cataracts, you do not have to resign yourself to increasingly poor vision for the rest of your life. Cataract surgery is one of the safest, fastest, and most effective procedures in modern medicine. In fact, many people who undergo cataract surgery are able to see even better than they did even before their cataracts developed, thanks to the advanced technology of lens implants.

    Do I Have Cataracts?

    If you are over the age of 40 and experience any of the following cataract symptoms, call us today at (816) 358-3600 to schedule a screening with Silverstein Eye Centers:

    • Double vision in one eye
    • Blurred and/or distorted vision
    • Faded colors
    • Halos and glare around bright lights
    • Sensitivity to light
    • Poor night vision

    Although it is rare, people under the age of 40 can sometimes develop cataracts as well.

    Importance of Removing Cataracts

    Cataracts are the number one cause of blindness in American seniors. Once a cataract forms, it will gradually start to become more opaque, preventing light from reaching the back of your eye and dimming your vision. If you never undergo cataract surgery, you will eventually experience total vision loss.

    Some people hesitate at the thought of undergoing cataract surgery, not realizing that it is currently one of the most successful surgeries of its kind. Cataract surgery can be completed in less than 15 minutes per eye, and once you a remove a cataract, it will never return.
