When should I Consider Cataract Surgery?

Cataracts are one of the most common age-related vision conditions. Currently, more than 25 million people over the age of 40 have cataracts, and this figure is expected to rise significantly over the next 20-30 years.

A cataract is a clouding of your eye’s lens. It develops when protein fibers in the lens become damaged. Over time as your lens becomes increasingly clouded with cataracts, the condition will result in a gradual deterioration of vision. Without treatment, cataracts can eventually result in blindness.

Am I Displaying Early Warning Signs of Cataracts?

Cataracts are one of the most common age-related vision conditions, impacting over 25 million Americans. If left untreated, cataracts can eventually lead to blindness.

Fortunately, you don’t have to go blind from cataracts. Cataract surgery can be performed to replace your eye’s cloudy natural lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) that will restore clear, sharp vision. At Kirk Eye Center, we offer a variety of premium IOL options that will eliminate the need for glasses after your procedure.

Cataract Cases on the Rise

Cataracts are already one of the leading causes of blindness around the world and based on data from the nonprofit organization Prevent Blindness, there will be a significant increase in cataract cases by 2050.

Fortunately, cataracts are easily treatable. At Kirk Eye Center, we offer the latest and most advanced cataract surgery treatment methods, allowing you to restore clear, sharp vision.

Thanks for Supporting Our Cataract Screening Event

We want to thank everyone from northern Colorado who attended our free cataract screening event this past Saturday, at Chilson Senior Center in Loveland.

We renewed  acquaintances with long-time patients and met folks who will be joining the practice as new patients.

Please watch for news regarding our next screening event to be held in the Johnstown and Milliken area, late winter.
