Cataract Treatment in Morristown, TN

When you are searching for an ophthalmologist in Morristown to treat cataracts, Hyde Eye Care is ready to discuss your treatment options. The lenses of your eyes are normally clear, and when a cataract forms, a cloudy area shows up on your lens. You may not notice the beginnings of a cataract, as not all cataracts cause vision problems right away. 

Most cataracts are found in people who are over 55 years old, but even children and infants can have cataracts. They are generally found in both eyes in older adults, while one eye may be worse than the other.

Options for Cataract Treatment in Morristown

The colored part of your eye is called the iris, and the lens that is susceptible to cataracts sits behind the iris. Your lens is responsible for focusing light to the back of your eye, where it reflects off of your retina sending images through.

When you have a cataract that clouds your sight, the lens can't work properly. The light is broken up, and you will suffer from vision problems. Your eye lenses are made up of proteins and water, and the cloudiness happens because of changes to the proteins and fibers of your lenses.

While most cataracts occur slowly, some can change your vision rapidly. You may have a cataract if:

  • Your vision appears blurry or includes a haze
  • Colors aren't as bright as they used to be
  • You have trouble driving at night because of lights glaring

In most cases, cataracts are age-related, although certain factors can increase your chances of developing cataracts.

Most cataracts are due to age-related changes in the lens of the eye that cause it to become cloudy or opaque but children can get cataracts too.  Other factors can contribute to cataract development, including:

  • Having diabetes.
  • Medications such as corticosteroid and chlorpromazine.
  • Exposure to ultraviolet radiation.
  • Smoking.
  • Drinking excessive alcohol.
  • Nutritional deficiencies and lack of antioxidants.

Cataract Surgery with Your Ophthalmologist in Morristown

When you can no longer see well enough to complete daily tasks, it's time to get cataract surgery to remove the cloudy lenses. Hyde Eye Care offers this common surgery, and most patients are able to drive the very next day. The surgery involves removing your affected lens and replacing it with an artificial one.

**Our Hyde Eye Care surgeons use the latest, most advanced approaches to cataract surgery at all times**

The surgery itself is not extensive. It involves a small incision on the side of the cornea, and placing a small probe into the eye. The probe releases sound waves that break up your cloudy lens so that it can be removed. Each case is slightly different, so our eye physicians will sit down and meet with you about your cataracts and what the process will entail.
