    NORCROSS, GA, January 29, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- America's Best understands that most people only think about their eye health if they can't see or if the need a new pair of glasses. But for people over 50, cataracts may be an issue that can cause a deterioration in vision. Understanding the risks and how to detect cataracts can help people over 50 to protect their vision.

Cataracts are a clouding of the lens of the eye that can be caused by age, exposure to sunlight, certain medications or injury. Some health conditions may also contribute to the development of cataracts. Cataracts are like a filmy haze that cover the lens and make it hard to see.

Individuals with cataracts are more susceptible to glare, making it harder to drive at night. They also see things as muted, less vibrant and less clear. At advanced stages, cataracts may be visible to the naked eye, showing up as a white film over the colored portion of the eye. An eye doctor can detect cataracts much earlier, though. Via a dilated eye exam, your optometrist can look at the lens of the eye to determine if cataracts are obscuring your vision and how badly.

Early detection and treatment of cataracts can improve a patient's quality of life, making it easier to drive at night and simply to see better. Cataracts can often be fixed through a simple outpatient surgical procedure.

"We encourage people to see their local optometrist if they are concerned about cataracts," said Dr. Grace Kim, Chairperson for Clinical Advisory Panel for America's Best. "Individuals over age 50 should be screened for cataracts and other vision issues annually."

If cataracts are a concern for you, schedule an eye exam with the optometrist at your local America's Best Contacts & Eyeglasses. With over 300 locations across the nation, it's easy to find an America's Best in your neighborhood. To schedule a dilated exam and discuss the threat cataracts may be to your sight, please visit
