what are Cataracts?
Cataracts are the clouding of the eye's natural lens. This phenomenon is usually brought on by the natural aging process but can be triggered by certain medications and underlying health conditions. Over time, cataracts get worse, leading to vision loss and/or complete blindness. But, if diagnosed early enough, long-term damage can be prevented. At Baton Rouge Eye Physicians, our team of ophthalmologists is highly trained in detecting and managing cataracts. Contact our Baton Rouge, LA office today to arrange a comprehensive eye exam to learn about all your treatment options.

diagnosis and treatment for cataracts
Cataracts are diagnosed with a thorough eye exam. This usually involves a series of simple tests that allow our team to assess your ocular structures. If a cataract is detected, we will go over the various approaches for treatment. Therapies will be selected based on the stage of the disease. When detected early enough, many patients manage very well with new prescription eyeglasses or contacts. Those with later-stage cataracts, however, generally require an invasive solution, like laser or traditional cataract surgery.
