Cataracts, What are Common Types, Causes, Symptoms and Treatments, Dr. Buseth – Eye Services of Jackson, Jackson, cataracts,contact lenses,eye care MI

When looking at an object, light is received through the pupil. It is then focused onto the the back of the eye, where there is a collection of light sensitive cells called the retina. A cataract occurs when the eye’s normally clear lens becomes fogged up, making it hard or even impossible for light to travel properly through the lens and be clearly focused on the retina.

Among other symptoms associated with cataracts, you may experience painless, blurry vision, or faded or yellowed colors.

Cataracts are often considered a common part of aging. The lens, which is made of mostly water and protein, grows excess layers on its surface as the years go by. When these layers harden, protein in the lens may form clumps and become cloudy, forming a cataract.

Dr. Buseth, of Eye Services of Jackson, adds,“Increased difficulty seeing at night or in dim lighting is another easily overlooked symptom. You should consult your eye care professional for an appointment if you have any of these symptoms and, if diagnosed, be sure to have regular check-ups thereafter.”, Dr. Buseth, Jackson eye doctor.

Treatment of a cataract varies. In cases in which clouding is minimal, vision is hardly affected and a slight change in eyeglasses prescription may be enough. Alternatively, if all or a large part of the lens is clouded, surgery is required to restore sight. Cataract surgery involves the removal of the cloudy natural lens and replacement of the natural lens with an artificial lens made of plastic, silicone or acrylic. The surgery is extremely low risk and is normally done as an outpatient procedure without overnight stay.

Dr. Buseth advises, “Proper pre- and post-op care are very important. Proper co-management means your optometrist and eye surgeon are on the same page when it comes to your treatment before, during and and after surgery.”

Although cataracts are usually considered an eye condition of old age, previous eye disease or eye surgery, chronic disease, diabetes, and eye injuries can bring on cataracts much earlier.

A thorough exam should be conducted by your primary eye doctor to diagnose and decide on treatment of your cataract. After this your doctor should be able to advise about the surgery and refer you to a surgeon, who will answer any questions you have about the surgery. Afterwards, follow ups should take place with both your surgeon and your optometrist to assess your recovery.

Comprehensive Family Eye Care, Dr. Buseth – Eye Services of Jackson, Jackson, Family Eye Care, contact lenses, eye care MI

Routine eye exams, screenings for eye diseases and proper development, and keeping up with constantly changing eyeglass and contact lens prescriptions all play a vital part in the long term visual health of every member of the family from youngest to oldest. Dr. Buseth of Eye Services of Jackson in Jackson, Michigan is always aiming to help families live every day with their clearest, most comfortable vision possible.

Proper eye care for the whole family starts with routine eye exams. Among the most important reasons for children is the central role that proper vision plays in his or her initial, as well as ongoing, success in schoolwork and extra-curricular activities.

Dr. Buseth explains, “The eyes are responsible for a great deal of our every day sensory experience. The eyes are, therefore, the main vehicle through which most of us learn. This is why it is so important to safeguard this incredibly valuable instrument of education and experience. Also important for children are eye exams focusing on the early detection and treatment of eye conditions like amblyopia and strabismus., Dr. Buseth, Jackson eye doctor.

For Mom and Dad, eyeglass and contact lens prescriptions are usually pretty stable and rarely, if ever, change. Unfortunately, this leads many adults to believe that comprehensive eye exams are only for their children, and that they no longer need routine check ups to maintain good vision health. However, in some respects it is even more important for Mom and Dad to have their annual check up than their children. This is because adults, especially those 40 years old and above, and those with underlying health issues such as diabetes, are at significantly increased risk of developing sight-threatening conditions, such as glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. Proper routine check ups, with a focus on early detection of these and other potentially harmful eye conditions, should be considered an important part of every adult’s health regimen.
These conditions can be treated very easily in early childhood, but become much more complicated if allowed to advance and develop into later childhood and adulthood.

Our comprehensive family eye care includes all the most important tests and screenings to determine the overall eye health of you and your children, the whole family for corrective lenses, and make sure that the whole family sees comfortably and clearly for many years to come.
