While these are normal eye conditions, you don’t have to suffer from reduced vision. Our surgeons are specialists in an array of treatment options designed to treat aging vision. Not all eyes age the same way and we pride ourselves in personalized treatment plans for our patients’ unique vision situations.

Approximately half of the population will have a cataract by age 65. The most common symptoms include blurred vision, double vision, and trouble seeing at night or while driving. Since cataracts can initially have few symptoms, early detection is key to successful treatment.
