Cataracts can ignorantly affect your vision and can be difficult to manage without treatment. At MacQueen Eye Care Center in Chicago, IL, we provide comprehensive eye exams to diagnose cataracts and provide a treatment plan that will improve your eyesight. Before you schedule your appointment, learn more about cataracts and how symptoms can be reduced below: 


What are Cataracts?

A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens inside the eye, which blocks light from entering and focuses it onto the retina. Cataracts can cause blurry vision, glare or difficulty seeing at night, and a decrease in color perception. While cataracts usually develop slowly with age, they can also be caused by trauma to the eye, long-term use of certain medications like corticosteroids, or diseases like diabetes.

When you visit us, our optometrist can diagnose and treat cataracts with advanced methods, such as laser surgery. We understand that each patient's needs are unique, which is why we provide personalized care for every individual who walks through our doors. Our experienced optometrist will evaluate your vision and determine the treated that would be most beneficial for your condition. We take a comprehensive approach to eye care, helping to ensure that any underlying issues are addressed so patients can experience healthy vision long term.

Treatments for Cataracts

When it comes to cataracts, treatment will vary depending on the severity of the condition. We offer various treatments, including refractive surgery, laser surgery, and intraocular lens implants. Once we evaluate your eyes, we can recommend the method that will provide you with sharper vision.

If you’re experiencing any symptoms of cataracts, it’s important to visit our optometrist as soon as possible to prevent further vision loss. If you are experiencing blurry vision, your symptoms may be due to cataracts or another condition, such as dry eye syndrome. We can provide a diagnosis and prompt treatment that will offer you relief.
