Business Description

Cataract Eye Surgery provides best service in Brooklyn. A cataract is an eye disease in which the eye’s clear lens becomes cloudy or opaque, causing a decrease in vision. Although the word cataract to describe this condition has been part of the English language since only the 15th century, the eye disease has been recognized and surgically treated since ancient times.
The lens is a portion of the eye that is usually clear. It focuses rays of light entering the eye onto the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. To get a clear image onto the retina, the portions of the eye in front of the retina, including the lens, must be clear and transparent.
The light striking the retina initiates a chemical reaction within the retina. In turn, the chemical reaction creates an electrical response carried to the brain through the optic nerve. The brain then interprets what the eye sees.

In a normal eye, light passes through the transparent lens to the retina. The lens must be clear for the retina to receive a sharp image. Suppose the lens is cloudy from a cataract. In that case, the image striking the retina will be blurry or distorted, and the vision will be blurry. The extent of the visual disturbance is dependent upon the degree of cloudiness of the lens.

Most cataracts are related to aging. Cataracts are prevalent in older people. By age 80, more than half of all Americans have some degree of cataract or have already undergone cataract surgery in one or both eyes. By age 95, this percentage increases to almost 100%. A cataract can occur in either or both eyes. Individuals with a cataract in one eye usually go on to develop a cataract in the other eye. A cataract is not contagious and cannot spread from one eye to another or from person to person. Cataracts do not cause the eye to tear abnormally. They are neither painful nor make the eye itchy or red.

Although vision can be restored in most people with cataracts, age-related cataracts are still the most common cause of blindness globally, primarily because many third-world nations lack appropriate and available surgical services.

As life span increases in the developed world due to modern technology and new treatment methods of acute and chronic disease, age-related cataracts will continue to increase.
