How Do I Know if I Have Cataracts?

A screening is used to determine whether or not you have cataracts and which treatment can be best tailored to your vision and lifestyle. The screening process takes about 1.5 to 2 hours and involves a series of computer-aided and traditional testing methods administered by a skilled technician. It will be followed by a discussion of your treatment options, including lifestyle lens, with one of our experienced ophthalmologists.

Some of the techniques and tools we will use in your screening include:

WaveScan

Without touching you, the WaveScan determines the unique topography of your eyes and creates a “map.”

Autorefraction

Our technicians will measure your refractive error (“level of vision imperfection”) using a computer-controlled autorefractor.

Glare Test

While looking at an eye chart, lights are introduced that simulate the effect of bright sunlight or nighttime glare and help determine your visual functionality.

Pentacam

A corneal camera takes thousands of pictures of your eye in mere seconds, to show your doctor the distinct shape, structure, and thickness of your cornea.
