Need More Reasons to have Cataract Removal?

Cataract Surgery Amarillo TX Cataract removal surgery is a very common, and very personal, vision-improving procedure. Because cataracts can greatly diminish vision, experts recommend removal at some point. Just where that point depends on the individual whose vision has been affected by the clouding of the natural lens. If you have cataracts, you have the final say in when, or if, you obtain treatment to replace the clouded lens with one that is clearer.

Here’s why you may want to consider cataract removal sooner rather than later . . .

  1. Quality of life matters. At the very heart of wellness is the quality of life. We all want to feel well, to move well, to see well to live our best life. Cataracts can substantially reduce the ability to do the things we love, but this need not be the case. Remember, you get to choose when to have cataracts removed. If you find that you are engaging less and less in the things that bring you joy, such as reading or walking in nature or jogging with your dog, it’s time to think about how much cataracts are impacting the quality of life.
  2. Safety is important. We don’t often think about how much our vision affects the way we move in physical space. Research reminds us that falling is a real possibility, especially as we age. Elderly individuals who have undergone cataract removal have been found to have a 23% lower risk of falling than same age-range folks with Having cloudy vision increases the risk of falling, and also of automobile accidents, so should be managed with great care to best decide when the time has come for surgery.
  3. Longevity is affected. Researchers have come to some pretty interesting conclusions about cataracts and how they can affect various aspects of life. In one long-term study, researchers found that cataract removal could lower mortality risk by approximately 40%.
