When is it time to schedule cataract surgery?

Most cataracts develop slowly over many years. Your ophthalmologist will observe the cataract progression and help you decide when it is time to schedule cataract surgery. Dr. Jahnle advises patients to schedule cataract surgery when cataracts begin to interfere with one’s activities of daily life – even when they are wearing their best pair of glasses. Daily activities of life may include driving (especially at night), watching television, reading a book or the newspaper, or using the computer. It may become difficult to read small print, read traffic signs, perform fine handwork like sewing or carpentry, or fill out forms. You may experience poor night vision, see halos around lights, experience glare, notice decreased colors, or even have double vision. Check out this video where Dr. Jahnle discusses his recommendations.
