What is a cataract
Well a cataract lists as a cloud in your eye. More specifically it is a fog in the lens of the eye. The lens lets the light in. No light then your brain declares it dark and tells you to go to bed. When the eye receives light it sends a message to the brain to make a clear picture. With cataracts less light gets in, the light gets bent and the picture gets distorted. Then you live in the world of fuzzy people, fuzzy trees, and fuzzy house.
What can a person do?
Well contact a phenomenal doctor like Dr. Amjad Khokhar. Award winning, he has trained his staff at Sugarland Eye and Laser Center in Houston in the fine art of cataract detection by LASIK and laser eye surgery procedures. They can look in your eyes and check the clouds. They like to counsel you first about your cataract since it is the first time you have had one. Cataracts are hard to catch, but Dr. Amjad Khokhar has the latest equipment that can rope, brand, and catch that cloudy cataract in the act of fogging your sight. Once he catches that fog he takes a laser to it. Burns it right up and puts in a new artificial lens. These artificial lens don’t fog up and last for years. So once the cataract cloud is caught, it can be contained and dispensed with. Then there is light and there was.
