Cataract Awareness Month

Cataracts are the most common causes of vision loss!

Natural LensMost people over 65 have some degree of cataract development. Clouded LensA cataract is the gradual clouding of the natural lens of the eye. In order for the eye to work properly, it needs a clear lens to focus light on the retina. A cataract allows less light to pass through the eye, distorting your vision.

Symptoms can include blurred vision, decreased vision at night, "halos" around lights, needing more light to read, and frequent changes in your glasses prescription.

If you think you may have a cataract, the doctors of EyeCare Specialists can help! Dr. Brad Stuckenschneider in Poplar Bluff and Dr. Shawn Parker in Cape Girardeau, Marion can you get back to seeing things more clearly! Click here for more information about cataracts or contact our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Stuckenschneider or Dr. Parker for a cataract evaluation.
