Eye Consultants of Texas is again offering free cataract screenings for an extended time. While cataracts are most often found in people age 50 or older (more frequently in your 60s), a cataract can start forming at a younger age.
Cataracts are a leading cause of blindness worldwide, and developing a cataract is a very common part of aging. By the age of 70 nearly all Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. Like most health issues, early detection can make a tremendous difference through screenings and other eye exams. The most common cataract symptoms include:
- Cloudy or blurry vision
- Colors seem faded
- Glare and halos appearing around lights
- Poor night vision
- Double vision or multiple images in one eye
- Frequent prescription changes in eyeglasses or contact lenses
If you’re over 40 and having trouble with your eyesight, you owe it to yourself to take advantage of our free cataract screenings. This can reveal if you have a cataract in one or both eyes, and the severity if you actually have a cataract. Getting a screening is especially important if you have risk factors for cataracts or other eye diseases.
To schedule your free cataract screening, simply call us in Grapevine at 877-516-4364. Eye Consultants of Texas is located right off highway 114, convenient to the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.
