June Is Cataract Awareness Month: Learn the Signs
Over 24.4 million Americans who are 40 years of age or older are affected by cataracts. It is one of the leading causes of blindness and will affect nearly everyone at some point in their lives—so it is important to be aware of the signs and symptoms. To help spread useful information about this condition, the month of June has been named Cataract Awareness Month.
At New Eyes Las Vegas, we are highly trained and experienced in treating cataracts through advanced and traditional methods. Whether laser cataract surgery or traditional surgery is right for you, we are sure to provide our patients with unparalleled patient care and exceptional results. Below, we have provided some of the most common signs and symptoms of cataracts.
- Fading or yellowing of colors
- Blurry, dull, or cloudy eyesight
- Double vision
- Poor night vision
- A “halo” effect around lights
- Progressive and significant loss of vision
If you experience one or more of these symptoms, please contact us as soon as possible. Although you may not necessarily have cataracts, it is possible you could be suffering from another condition that requires immediate care. Regular eye exams can also help ensure cataracts or other vision concerns are addressed before they get worse. To learn more about cataracts and their symptoms, we encourage you to review additional information throughout our website.
At all New Eyes locations, we have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by increasing our sanitation procedures and adding necessary safety protocols to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.
