Specific treatment for cataracts will be determined by your physician based on:

·                     your age, overall health, and medical history

·                     extent of the disease

·                     expectations for the course of the disease

·                     your opinion or preference

·                     your tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies


In its early stages, vision loss caused by a cataract may be aided with the use of different eyeglasses, a magnifying glass, or stronger lighting. When these measures are no longer helpful, surgery is the only effective treatment available, for most individuals. It is important to note that a cataract only needs to be removed when vision loss interferes with everyday activities such as driving, reading, or watching television. You and your doctor can make that decision together.
