Dr Matthew Russell from OKKO Eye Specialist Centre explains what daily life is like before cataract surgery
Cataracts can affect your life in so many different, small ways without you realising it. Sometimes you’ll notice it when looking at labels or ingredients. You’ll notice you can’t read the small print on newspapers. You might find that reading is becoming more challenging on your iPad or your mobile phone.
When you’re outside, you’re not picking up the birds on the trees, and you do not see that golf ball. When you’re driving, you do not see the signs as well. At night, you might be experiencing some glare.
A cataract can affect you in so many different ways. It’s personal because it’s all about who you are and what your life is like. It’s about the impact that these cataracts are having on your life.
Fortunately, we can relieve all that with one of the most common and safest procedures on the human body: modern cataract surgery.
Furthermore, many people don’t know of all the options that might be available to them. Our self-test only takes a few minutes to complete. It can provide both of us with an indication about what treatment might be appropriate to you.
