Cataract and Glaucoma Screening & Management

Cataract & Glaucoma Management

What is a Cataract?

A cataract is a cloudiness of the eye’s natural lens, which lies between the front and back areas of the eye, directly behind the pupil.

Are you experiencing blurred or cloudy vision? Are you having difficulty seeing at night or in very bright light? Do colours seem faded or yellow? As you grow older, you can expect your eyes – and your vision – to change. The aging process causes the eye’s lens to harden and become thicker, producing a very common condition called cataracts. For some, cataracts are an inevitable part of growing older, but with early detection and the right treatment, it’s possible to preserve or restore the clarity of your vision. At Kodak Lens Vision Centres, we offer cataract screenings and treatments to patients just like you.

What is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is the term used to describe a number of related conditions that cause damage to the optic nerve, which transmits information from the eye to the brain. It usually (but not always) is associated with high intraocular pressure (IOP). Left untreated, glaucoma can cause blindness.

Glaucoma damages the optic nerve and diminishes the field of vision. Learn about glaucoma causeseye drops for glaucomanarrow-angle glaucomaprimary open-angle glaucoma and glaucoma surgery. See also: Eye Doctor Q&A | Glaucoma News & Research | Glaucoma FAQ

Glaucoma is a common cause of vision impairment that affects patients throughout the world. The good news, however, is that glaucoma can often be treated successfully when caught early on. That’s why it’s important to get a glaucoma screening if you’re at risk for the disease. At Kodak Lens Vision Centres, we offer glaucoma screenings in the comfort of our clinics. We also offer custom treatment plans designed to preserve your vision.
