How is a Cataract detected?
Cataracts are detected through a thorough eye examination by your eye doctor. Your eye examination should include:
- Visual Acuity Test: This eye chart test will measure how well you see at different distances.
- Dilation of your pupils: An eye drop widens the pupil and allows the doctor to see more of your lens and retina within the eye. Dilation will also make it easier for the doctor to detect any other possible eye problems.
- Tonometry: This is a standard test that measures the pressure inside the eye. Tonometry also serves to diagnose Glaucoma and other eye diseases.
- Education: Your eye examination is a perfect opportunity to ask important questions you may have and discuss your surgical options with the doctor and professional staff.
