Cataract Awareness Month

The board of optometry has marked June as the official month to bring awareness to cataracts. 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 Wellish Vision Institute we can help treat your cataracts. Here at Wellish Vision Institute in Las Vegas, NV, we have state-of-the-art technology used during your cataract surgery, while also providing you with multiple lens options. Dr. Wellish is a board certified surgeon that will walk you through what a cataract is and what options you have to treat it. 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 any of our three offices to schedule your consultation.
