Cataracts are the clouding of the eye’s natural lens that affects vision. The lens works much like a camera lens and focuses light on the retina at the back of the eye, and is made up of water and protein. The proteins may clump together over time and cause clouding of the vision.
If you or someone you know wishes to learn more about cataracts or cataract surgery please call your local optometrist to schedule an appointment. If specialty care, treatment or surgery is required, please ask to be referred to one of the physicians at Eyecare Medical Group, 53 Sewall Street, Portland, Maine 04102 at 888-374-2020, or visit Eyecare Medical Group, Google+ or facebook.com/eyecaremedicalgroup.
