Taking care of your eyes is something that you can do every single day, but it is also something that you should consider when scheduling your annual checkups and exams. In general, people of all ages should see a variety of different specialists for routine checkups and your eye doctor should definitely be one of them. Making sure that your eyes are healthy is essential, especially since anyone can develop an eye disease. Here at the offices of Dr Sheldon Cowen we can provide you with the comprehensive care and attention that you need, especially if you already have a disease or other condition, like cataracts. Our Seattle ophthalmologist
is here to help provide you with expert care and any treatment that you might need in order to take care of your eyes and to preserve your vision.
Cataracts are a fairly common eye related condition, but it is important that people understand what it is, what its symptoms are, and what to do when it comes to diagnosing and treating it as well. Here with Dr Sheldon Cowen you can have comprehensive exams conducted every year in order to look out for even the earliest signs and symptoms of eye disease, including those related to cataracts. Cataracts develop when the lens of the eye begins to grow thicker over time. The cataract is essentially the lens of the eye, and much like the lens of a camera the clarity and curvature of the cornea affects the quality of the images that you see. In the earliest stages of cataract development, the symptoms associated with this condition are very much like rapidly declining nearsightedness and are treated in much the same way with progressing prescription lenses. As cataracts become worse, though, you may need surgery and our Seattle ophthalmologist
can help provide you with the refractive cataract surgery that you will need in order to overcome this condition and restore your eyesight.
If you happen to be at risk for eye diseases like cataracts, if you have already been diagnosed with cataracts or if you are noticing abnormal symptoms relating to your vision then please call us here at the offices of Dr Sheldon Cowen to book an appointment with our Seattle optometrist today.
