The decision to undergo cataract surgery is based on several factors, including the impact of cataracts on your vision and daily activities, as well as your overall eye health and personal preferences. Not all individuals with cataracts require immediate surgery.
A cataract eye exam can detect other eye conditions or identify changes in your eye health. During the cataract examination, your eye care professional will assess various aspects of your eyes, including the lens, retina, and optic nerve. This allows them to identify potential issues beyond cataracts, such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, or glaucoma.
The frequency of cataract eye exams depends on various factors, including age, overall eye health, and cataract symptoms. In general, it is recommended to have regular comprehensive eye exams every one to two years, especially for individuals over 60 or those at higher risk for developing cataracts.
Yes, cataracts can develop in both eyes simultaneously, although it is common for cataracts to develop at different rates or in one eye before the other. If cataracts are detected in one eye, it is still important to monitor the other eye regularly, as cataract development can occur independently in each eye.
