For most people, the lens of one or both eyes eventually gets cloudy, causing blurry vision. This condition is called a cataract. More than half of Americans develop cataracts or have had surgery to correct a cataract by the age of 80, according to the National Eye Institute. You might develop a cataract in one or both eyes, but it does not spread from one to the other.

Testimonial

  • ""I am not sure if it is possible to put into words how wonderful Advanced Eye Care is. I have rather significant eye issues that required frequent visits, frequent changes, and frequent frustration. Everyone at Advanced Eye Care went above and beyond standard patient care to make me feel comfortable, understood, and ease the frustration associated with my keratoconus. I would recommend any one of the eye doctors here to take care of any of my friends, family, or co-workers. My vision would not be where it is today without the care they provided and continue to give"."

  • ""My wife and I have been patients at Advanced Eye Care with Dr. Roddy for over twenty-five years. Due to some unusual eye issues we have had to depend upon her expertise beyond normal eye exams and prescriptions for glasses. She has always been knowledgeable and has skillfully helped us to resolve the issues. Over the years we have interacted with many of the staff and they have always been courteous, professional and helpful. I can unconditionally recommend Advanced Eye Care as a wonderful place to have vision needs met"."
