Cataract Awareness Month

The board of optometry has officially marked June as the official month to bring awareness to cataracts. Many people are not aware that they have a cataract, or even what the signs and symptoms can be.  Cataracts are clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. When you have this clouding it, in turn, causes partial blindness and glares when driving at night. Caratacts can range in seriousness and the good news is here at Southwest Eye Institute we can help treat your cataracts, no matter what the stage. Within our office in El Paso, TX we have state-of-the-art technology used during your cataract surgery, while also providing you with multiple lens options. Dr. Ellman is a board-certified surgeon that will walk you through what a cataract is and what options you have to treat it along with his fellow doctors at the practice. There are multiple symptoms associated with a cataract:

  • Cloudy or blurry vision
  • Difficulty with everyday tasks such as reading the hymnbook, driving (especially at night), or seeing facial expressions.
  • Sensitivity to light or glare.
  • Seeing “halos” around lights
  • Frequent changes in eyeglass or contact lens prescription

Our staff wants to ensure you are getting the best quality care so if you are experiencing any of these symptoms make sure to call either of our two offices to schedule your consultation.
