Cataract is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. If not treated, cataracts can lead to blindness. In addition, the longer cataracts are left untreated, the more difficult it can be to successfully remove the cataract and restore vision.
During Cataract Awareness Month in June, The American Academy of Ophthalmology reminds the public that early detection and treatment of cataracts is critical to preserving sight.
VEI treats cataracts for many members of our community every year! Check out our patient testimonial with Anthony Weir, who received Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery from VEI back in 2015.
