Diagnosis & Surgery Co-management


Cataract Diagnosis & Co-Management, Keene, NH  

Cataracts are a common concern as people age. At New England EyeWorks in Keene, New Hampshire, our eye doctor diagnoses cataracts and co-manages cataract surgery. If you need surgery, we’ll refer you to a trusted ophthalmologist in the area and provide follow-up care.  

What are cataracts?  

A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. Cataracts develop when proteins in your eyes clump together, letting less light pass through and blurring vision. Over time, cataracts get larger and affect more of your vision. While cataracts are most often linked to aging, they can also develop from trauma or medical conditions such as diabetes. 

Symptoms of cataracts  

If you’ve noticed that your vision isn’t as clear as it used to be, cataracts might be the culprit. Some common signs include blurry vision, sensitivity to light, trouble seeing at night, halos around lights, dull colors, and frequent prescription changes. People with cataracts may also have difficulty reading fine print. 

    Treatment for cataracts  

    Treatment for cataracts will depend on how much they are affecting your vision and daily activities. If they’re having little to no effect on your vision, you may not need treatment right away. Instead, your eye doctor may suggest scheduling regular eye exams to monitor any changes. Sometimes, simply updating your eyeglass prescription can provide some temporary relief.  

    When a cataract starts interfering with your vision and day-to-day life, it may be time to consider surgery. If surgery is needed, we’ll refer you to an ophthalmologist in the Keene area. Following your procedure, we’ll schedule follow-up visits to monitor your progress and help ensure a smooth recovery.
