Cataracts FAQs

What causes cataracts?

Cataracts are cloudiness in the natural lens of the eyes, which affects vision. Most people get cataracts due to age, and it affects people age over 50, but that is not the only factor. In some cases, infants and young children can have congenital cataracts resulting from illnesses the mother had during pregnancy. Cataracts can be caused by eye diseases, eye injuries, or other medical conditions, and at Hester Eye Associates PC, we strive to understand the symptoms, causes, and diagnosis for cataracts.

Do I need treatment for cataracts?

As your optometrist of choice in the Kennesaw area, we advise on high quality and professional treatment for cataracts. Our clinic's services are complete eye examinations, contact lenses, glasses fitting, pre and post-operative care, and glaucoma testing. Our team at Hester Eye Associates PC conducts routine eye exams annually or bi-annually, taken very seriously. These tests help patients' history reviews, assessment of eye function, vision and eye tests, and general eye health evaluation.

What happens when you have cataracts?

When you have cataracts, your vision gets blurred, they cause double vision in one eye, and it causes sensitivity to glare and light. Cataracts' symptoms are noticeable once they have grown large and significantly interfere with light passage through the lens. Other cataracts symptoms are faded colors, halos around lights, vision distortion, and cloudy vision. Cataracts are problems for the long term, and when you have them, your vision gets affected gradually with time if not treated.

How We Help Treat Cataracts at Hester Eye Associates PC

At Hester Eye Associates PC, our annual eye exams help diagnose cataracts and the determination of their extent. We use different techniques to diagnose cataracts such as pupil dilation, contrast sensitivity, and Potential Acuity Eye Test to determine how much your vision quality is affected by the cataract. Our doctors help in the diagnosis of cataracts depending on your age, your medical history, and your symptoms. If you suspect you have signs of cataracts or an eye problem that affects your sensitivity to light and glare, visit us for assessment and treatment.
