Cataracts Cause Blindness If Left Untreated

More than 20 million Americans experience blurred vision as the result of cataracts. Because cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in adults 55 and older, it is important to have eyes treated by an ophthalmologist.

To celebrate Cataracts Awareness Month throughout the month of August, DeHaven Eye Clinic wants to inform East Texans that extensive and progressive cataracts left untreated can cause blindness. However, cataracts are one of the most curable eye conditions.

“While half of Americans older than 65 have some degree of cataracts, they do not have to suffer with complete vision loss,” says Dr. Tom DeHaven of DeHaven Eye Clinic. “Because of our experience, we understand the needs and concerns associated with cataracts and we help our patients determine the best option for their treatment.”

DeHaven’s expert physicians are determined to find the best treatment for each patient. They have offered the most comprehensive information and up-to-date treatments available to their cataract patients for more than 40 years.

In order to serve their patients better, they have developed the Cataract Institute at DeHaven Eye Clinic. They offer a variety of treatments including the most advanced intraocular lens replacements available such as Crystalens and ReSTOR.

DeHaven Eye Clinic is dedicated to offering the best vision care through a variety of treatments and procedures. DeHaven Eye Clinic is dedicated to East Texans. They have locations in Tyler, Longview, Jacksonville and Mineola, with five satellite offices located in Sulphur Springs, Canton, Mt. Pleasant, Gilmer and Kilgore.
