Annual eye exams are important, especially when it comes to identifying or managing specific eye conditions. If you happen to be at risk for developing cataracts or already have them, then our eye doctor in Gilbert here at San Tan Eye Care can help make sure that you are provided with the care you need. Cataracts can affect certain people, and when they occur they require frequent care and management, and our eye doctors – Dr. Hostetler and Dr. Wold – can do whatever it takes to preserve and care for your vision during this time.
Cataracts are more likely to affect people with diabetes, a family history of cataracts, people who have experienced eye damage in the past, seniors, as well as those with high blood pressure, a history of smoking, and much more. Annual eye exams can help people of all ages manage and care for their eye health. Routine examinations play a key role in early detection, which can help you avoid vision damage or complete vision loss. Cataracts tend to develop slowly over time, affecting more and more of your eyesight as it worsens or progresses. They can often affect people as they age, causing blurry, dim vision that gets worse over time and may eventually need surgery to correct completely.Early on, cataracts can be helped with the use of prescription lenses, but surgery to remove the thickened lens may need to occur to produce clear eyesight once they have significantly progressed and worsened. Here at San Tan Eye Care, you will meet with an eye doctor in Gilbert, either Dr. Hostetler or Dr. Wold, to see what the best course of action will be for you.
