Cataracts are a clouding of the lens in the eye that causes blurry vision and over time, vision loss. 20% of cataract cases are caused by UV exposure. It is the leading cause of blindness in the U.S., and can happen as a result of UV overexposure. At the offices of Alden Leifer, MD and Associates we perform cataracts surgery Paterson for patients so that they can see clearly again.
One way to combat cataracts is with sunglasses that have UV protection. Sunglasses can block out 99 to 100% of all UVA and UVB radiation. Sunglasses do double duty by not only protecting the eyes but also the skin around the eyes, which is delicate and should be protected to ward off skin cancer as well as premature aging. Long term UV exposure can result in diseases such as cataracts, macular degeneration and other conditions. Our sunglasses help protect eyes from harmful UV rays. Our sunglasses all feature a protective and strong UV coating in order to ward off those harmful rays from the sun. Cataracts surgery Paterson is a way to rid the eyes of cataracts that cause blurriness.
If you are noticing cloudy vision don’t hesitate to call us today. It can be difficult to read or drive, or see well at night, if you have cataracts. They may develop slowly at first, with no noticeable side effects, but get worse over time. Strong lighting and stronger eyeglass prescriptions can help, but eventually surgery may be required to see better. Our cataract surgery Paterson is safe, painless and effective, and can now be done with a modern stitchless technique as well as with premium lens implants. Our offices are open Monday through Friday during regular business hours in order to answer all your questions about cataracts eye care and management.
