Taking care of your eyes is essential and there are plenty of things that can have an effect on your eye health. There are various diseases that anyone is capable of developing, and cataracts are one such condition. Here at Katz Eye Center, our Bronx eye surgeon can provide you with complete care for a variety of different issues and conditions, including cataract trouble. If cataracts become particularly severe you may even need premium lens implant surgery and Dr. Katz is here to help.
Cataracts can develop for a number of reasons, and the likelihood of developing cataracts can depend on your health. Other medical conditions like diabetes can put you at a greater risk of developing cataracts than others, but individuals with a family medical history of cataracts, with a personal history of eye damage, and patients over the age of 65 are all more likely to develop cataracts than other people and may need to schedule more frequent checkups. Checkups and regular eye exams can identify early stages of cataracts, ensuring that you get comprehensive care from the beginning. Here at Katz Eye Center, Dr. Katz can monitor your condition and provide you with the treatment you need. Our Bronx eye surgeon can also provide you with the premium lens implant surgery that you might need if your cataracts become particularly severe. Early on, cataracts can be treated with prescription lenses much in the way of nearsightedness, but as they become worse it can become impossible to see. With lens surgery, you can have your thickened lenses removed and IOLs put in their place. Dr. Katz can treat your cataracts from diagnosis onward, discussing surgical options with you once they become severe enough.
