Snead Eye Group Discusses Cataracts Treatment Options
Cataracts are a common vision problem plaguing many adults, especially as they get older. Typically caused by aging, eye injuries, or inherited genetic disorders, eye cataracts are the progressive clouding of the eye’s natural lens. Cataract symptoms include blurry or cloudy vision, glares or halos around lights, and double vision. The only way to correct cataracts is to remove them through cataract surgery and replace the eye’s lens with an intraocular lens (IOL). With offices in Fort Myers, Bonita Springs, Cape Coral, and Naples, Snead Eye Group specializes in cataract surgery for Southwest Florida patients.
