Happy Patients
My wife and I retired to Watertown, so like many newcomers, I asked church members, friends, and neighbors about vision care options. All mentioned Claris as a top choice, and we have not been disappointed to follow their recommendations! Professional, yet personal and friendly. I find Dr Julie kind and caring, understanding our needs and proactively helping and guiding. Now I know why all my friends like her so much!

Cataracts Q&A with Dr. Zoellick

What are cataracts and how can they be treated?

Cataracts are a clouding of the lens inside the eye. They are common with age, certain medications and medical conditions. Patients usually feel like they are looking through a dirty window, cannot see colors the way they used to or have increased difficulty with glare. Currently, the treatment is surgery to remove the cloudy lens. Stay tuned for medical advances in cataract treatment in the future!

Can younger people get cataracts?

You may have a cataract from birth. Yes. Very rare but you could be born with cataracts or cataracts could be caused from injury or surgery. Some cataracts may have a little dot – congenital cataract that doesn’t affect your vision and you won’t even notice. The doctor may see it on exam.

Do I have to wait until my cataracts are “ripe” before I can have them removed?

No! Waiting for cataracts to get “ripe” refers to an outdated surgical technique. Today, we recommend cataract-removal when your quality of vision interferes with your quality of life. It is possible to have 20/20 vision, yet be so disabled by glare from headlights or sunlight, that cataract surgery may be the right treatment. We will monitor your cataract progression and help you decide the proper timing of cataract surgery.
