At Griffin Optometric Group, we have decades of experience diagnosing and monitoring cataracts, a disease that causes a clouding of the lens inside the eye. It is most common among older patients, particularly those over the age of 50. While typically slow growing, cataracts can reduce one's vision over time and eventually cause blindness if left untreated.
Diagnosing & Monitoring Cataracts
During our annual eye exam, we always check for cataracts. If they are present, we continue to track their growth at each successive exam. As soon as cataracts start affecting your daily life, we can discuss cataract surgery. Cataract surgery is a considered one of the safest and most common surgical procedures in the United States. Each year, more than 3 million cataract surgeries are performed, the vast majority of which are considered a complete success. For most patients, cataract surgery restores their vision back to 20/20.
Cataract Surgery Referrals & Post-Op Exams
Once you are ready for cataract surgery, we can provide you with a referral to a local ophthalmologist who specializes in cataract surgery. Since we've been serving the eye care needs of patients throughout South Orange County since 1957, we know many of the leading cataract surgeons in the area and will only refer you to someone we trust. Throughout the process, we'll function as your advocate to make sure that the best possible outcome is achieved. Following surgery, we provide postoperative care and exams to ensure that everything is healing correctly and there are no complications.
