Cataract Prevention for Senior Citizens
Date:8/20/2013

San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) August 20, 2013

San Antonio Eye Center PA recommends preventative eye care for senior citizens during Senior Citizens Day on Wednesday, August 21.

Cataracts develop as part of the aging process. By age 75, about 70 percent of people will have cataracts. As people age, the lens of the eye becomes less flexible, less transparent and thicker. Furthermore, areas of the lens become cloudy as protein in the lens begins to clump together. Cataract care treatment is indicated when decreased vision affects everyday activities. To determine how much vision has decreased, patients should visit their eye doctor to schedule a Contrast Sensitivity test.

Risk factors for Cataracts include:

-Obesity
-High Blood Pressure
-Previous eye surgery
-Advanced age
-Smoking
-Diabetes

In the event of Cataract Surgery, the procedure is quick and very successful. Recovery time is short, and patients are permitted to eat a light snack and drink immediately following the surgery. Most people experience improved vision almost immediately.

San Antonio Eye Center PA offers complete comprehensive services and treatments. Their physicians are highly-regarded and extremely well-trained. For more information visit their website.
