It can be hard to find the time to schedule doctors appointments— especially if you don’t think they are necessary. When it comes to your vision health, nothing is quite as important as getting your cataracts removed. As one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States, cataracts aren’t something you want to mess with. Let’s take a closer look into reasons why you should have your cataracts removed by Papale Eye Center
They Are Clouding Your Vision
If you have cataracts, you may notice that your vision is kind of cloudy— especially when you’re driving at night. If you feel like your cataracts are making it more difficult for you to see, then you definitely want to have them removed. Once we remove your cataracts, we will replace them with an intraocular lens (IOL) which will help you to see more clearly. If you are interested in seeing both up close and far away, then make sure to talk to us about multifocal lenses as well.
You Don’t Want To Go Blind
As previously mentioned, cataracts are one of the leading causes of blindness in patients in the United States, and the last thing you want to do is go blind. If cataracts go left untreated for a significant amount of time, the damage can be irreversible which means that you will be at a higher risk of permanently losing your vision.
During your next eye appointment, we can discuss all of the ins and outs of cataract removal surgery. If you want to take the next steps to get rid of your cataracts and gaining back your vision, then contact our Springfield office today and give us a call at (413) 782-0030.
