Gain Clarity with Legacy Eye Care

Do you know how your eyes work? They’re complicated machines with many little parts working together to let you see the world around you. When even one of these parts malfunctions, it can lead to impaired vision.

The lens is one of the eye’s essential components. Sitting behind the pupil, it refracts light and brings objects at various distances into focus.

When we’re young, the lens is clear. But as we age, most of us will develop cataracts. Cataracts occur when the proteins in the lens start to break down and interfere in your eye’s ability to refract light.

Symptoms of Cataracts

Many with mild cataracts won’t notice any changes in their vision. However, cataracts will continue to worsen over time and eventually cause symptoms that may impact your daily activities. These include:

  • Cloudy or blurry vision
  • Faded colours
  • Poor night vision
  • Halos around lights
  • Double vision
  • Constant prescription changes

Cataract Treatments

Mild cataracts can be managed by using brighter lights and magnifying lenses or by updating your eyeglass and contact lens prescriptions.

However, if your cataracts start to interfere with your ability to write, read, drive, or recognize family and friends, we may refer you for cataract surgery.

Cataract surgery is a safe and effective procedure that replaces your clouded natural lens with an artificial intraocular lens.
