Cataract Surgery in Nashville, TN
Cataracts are the most common treatable cause of blindness and poor vision in the Nashville area. Jeffrey D. Horn, MD, of Vision for Life offers cataract surgery for the residents of Nashville, Murfreesboro and the surrounding communities of Tennessee.
What is Cataract Surgery?
Our eyes have a natural lens that focuses light on the retina to give us clear and sharp vision. The lens is about the size of a small chocolate candy, is flexible and changes shape to alter the focal distance as we look at our surroundings. As we age, the lens hardens and becomes cloudy. A cataract is the clouding of the lens. The problem is corrected with cataract surgery to replace the natural lens and restore clear vision.
Benefits of Cataract Surgery
Cataract surgery prevents blindness and poor vision by replacing the lens of the eye that is cloudy and inflexible. The new lens is able to change shape to adjust to objects you are viewing at various distances.
How Do I Know If I Have Cataracts?
Cataracts develop slowly, so your optometrist will screen you for cataracts. If you have signs of cataracts, you will receive a referral to Dr. Horn for further evaluation and treatment.
