Learn all about Cataracts
Benjamin Eye Care & Optical Shop can provide you with complete cataract care. A cataract is a painless, cloudy area in the lens of the eye that blocks the passage of light to the retina. Cataracts are generally caused by aging and exposure to sunlight, but can also be a result of eye injuries, eye disease or certain medications. The loss of vision from a cataract often happens slowly so you may not even notice that the cataract has caused vision problems. Give us a call and let our experienced doctors accurately diagnose your cataract and then give you a clear and detailed analysis of your options and treatments.

Diagnosing cataracts begins during a comprehensive clinical eye exam. During the exam, Dr. Benjamin is perceptive to the contributing factors of cataracts, including the patients’ symptoms and vision complaints. Regularly scheduled eye exams are extremely important in diagnosing and successfully treating cataracts.
Patients do not have to accept cataracts and the resulting vision loss as a part of aging. When the vision begins to diminish and other symptoms have a negative impact on the patient’s daily life, Dr. Benjamin removes the cataracts by performing cataract surgery. During this procedure the cataract lens is removed and replaced with an artificial, intraocular lens.
You can get a complete diagnosis and treatment if you are experiencing cataracts symptoms:
- fuzzy vision
- Excessive glare
- Frequent changes in eyeglasses prescription
