Cataracts can affect the vision of people of all ages, but particularly for those later in life. It is a clouding of the lens in the middle of your eye and generally causes blurriness or hazy vision, similar to “looking out through a dirty windscreen” as well as becoming more light and glare sensitive. The vision can usually be improved with prescription glasses, sunglasses and/or contact lenses.
When the cataract is more mature or beginning to impact on your quality of life is when cataract surgery is recommended with an ophthalmologist.
As part of our Optical Fingerprint™ assessment, the Insightful Eyecare team can diagnose cataracts and explore the best course of action for you. Book online for an appointment today.
Following the announcement of the latest COVID-19 Restrictions, the Department of Health has confirmed that we are an Essential Service and are open during this period to attend to your visual needs.
As one of the five reasons you can leave your home, you can travel beyond 5km to visit the practice to:
Receive necessary health care / address sudden changes in your vision / replace broken glasses
To make an appointment, book online via the website for either:
Swan St Eye Centre or Dingley Eye Centre;
(Our team will give you a call to triage your requirements)

Stay safe and we will get through this together!
