June is Cataract Awareness Month
Cataract is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. If not treated, it can lead to blindness. In addition, the longer cataracts are left untreated, the more difficult it can be to successfully remove the cataract and restore vision. During Cataract Awareness Month in June, we join the American Academy of Ophthalmology reminds the public that early detection and treatment of cataracts is critical to preserving sight.
The good news about cataracts is there have been some remarkable treatment advancements, and Pepose Vision is proud to be at the forefront of them all. These include inlays that not only remove the blurriness of cataracts but also dramatically improve overall vision. Many of our patients hardly need glasses to read or see at a distance after our advanced cataract treatment.
If your vision isn’t what it used to be and your age 50+, we recommend you schedule an appointment to come see us for a comprehensive exam. If you do have cataracts, you’ll be amazed at what we can do to help you see like you did years ago.
