Do You Have a Cataract?
If you have cloudy or blurred vision, see halos and glare around lights, or have difficulty driving at night, you may have a cataract. Cataracts are an inevitable part of the aging process, but many people don’t realize they have one until it’s discovered during a routine eye examination.
Although most cataracts are age-related, you don’t have to be a senior citizen to get one. Cataracts are most responsible for diminished vision after the age of 60. They can occur at younger ages, but are usually small and do not affect vision.
How to Find a Skilled Cataract Surgeon
To achieve the very best results from your cataract surgery, you will want to choose a competent, experienced surgeon who is fully certified in his or her field. These tips may help you make an informed decision.
Ask family, friends, neighbors and colleagues to recommend qualified eye surgeons with whom they’ve had good experiences. Your family doctor or primary care physician may also be able to refer you to a cataract surgeon they know and like. Recommendations from people you know and trust are always more valuable than reviews and ratings you read on the Internet.
Another excellent resource is the America’s Top Doctors directory. Each year, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. identifies the nation’s best doctors by medical specialty. The list represents the top 1% of doctors in the nation. Doctors cannot pay to be listed, and are instead nominated by their peers and researched by a team of physicians. Dr. Elmquist has been selected as one of America’s Top Doctors in Ophthalmology for six consecutive years.
Board certified ophthalmologists have the skills and expertise to provide comprehensive eye care services, including complex and delicate eye surgery. Verify that the eye surgeon you are considering is board certified by visiting the Certification Matters website of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS).
The respected online consumer review site, Angie’s List, which offers more than 10 million verified reviews of local services about everything from price to professionalism to punctuality, is another great resource for information. Elmquist Eye Group has maintained an “A” rating with Angie’s List since 2008 and has repeatedly earned their coveted Super Service Award.
