There are many reasons to schedule a cataract screening. Here are 11 of our favorites!
Lower your risk of falling
Studies have shown a decrease in the number of falls suffered by patients after cataract surgery.
Improve Nighttime Vision
Lens replacement can dramatically improve your nighttime vision, because worsening vision in dim lighting, including glare, starbursts, and halos around lights can be an early symptom of cataracts.
Reduced risk of car accidents
Cataract removal has been linked to a reduced risk of car accidents.
Help to keep your driver’s license
Your vision must be correctable to 20/40 or better to maintain a Texas driver’s license!
See the world in vibrant colors
Many patients report seeing colors as “more vibrant” after cataract surgery.
Get back to reading with ease
Cataracts make it harder to read, whether it’s medication bottles, the newspaper, or your Facebook feed! No more extra bright lights or magnifying glasses!
Easier cataract removal
The cataract will harden over time, becoming denser and making removal more difficult, so why wait to find out?
Yeah, we know it seems sort of random, but you’d be surprised by how many patients reported their excitement at being able to really get into their Spring Cleaning.
See the important details in your life
A patient cried happy tears upon seeing her great-grandson after cataract replacement surgery because she could see his beautiful little eyelashes. What important details might you be missing?
Reduce dependence on glasses/contacts
Cataract surgery presents an opportunity to correct your vision while replacing your clouded lens. So, you could be less dependent on glasses and contacts with a LifeStyle Lens implant!
Maintain Personal Independence
Speaking of dependence, all the points above lead to one thing: More personal independence. Drive yourself more safely, don’t worry as much about falling, or read that new recipe you’ve been wanting to try!
