Raising Awareness about Cataract Surgeries
Florence Henderson has taken the responsibility with the help of Bausch and Lomb to encourage more Americans to do something about their vision problems which has most likely been caused by a cataract development.
Like many bodily ailments, a cataract develops usually not through any fault of your own but is generally a part of the ageing process, this is a problem that a major number of senior citizens face when their natural eye lens gets clouded which obviously blurs and distorts their vision, the vision would be a lot like if thick greasy oil were spilled all over a camera lens and if you were to then look through it.
Cataracts therefore cause most of vision problems in the country, yet senior citizens and others as well do nothing about it in fear of surgery.
But the truth is that a cataract surgical procedure is practically harmless and is not even risky and even though it is a surgery, it is pretty much a standard procedure which will not even take fifteen minutes to be completed.
Florence Henderson is encouraging Americans about the surgery ever since she herself underwent one after her doctor’s discovered her need for it.
She therefore believes now that everybody should consult their doctor as regularly as possible through eye checkups and should look for treatments to deal with their vision problems, and if they have been recommended cataract surgery then no hesitation is required as it is a simple procedure that reaps great results and does away with almost all kinds of vision problems that you might have. In fact after the surgery you will find that your need for glasses itself has reduced greatly.
It would take about eight weeks for a person to completely heal and recover from the surgery, although you can continue to live your normal life as it is- you will of course be limited to sleep more and give your eyes as much rest as possible, and keeping away from direct sunlight and glares is something you will have to be careful about for a few weeks as well.
