As a result of this opacity, the cataract sufferer may see the world as though he or she were looking through a plastic sheeting. Other symptoms include a muting or distortion of color vision, night blindness and increasing sensitivity to glare. The degree to which one experiences these symptoms is related to the degree to which the lens clouding has progressed. When the patient deems blurred vision, light sensitivity, or distorted vision enough of a hinderance to warrant lens removal (and replacement), it is time for cataract surgery. The decision to undergo surgery is based on each patient's individual needs. P.S. Typically, cataract surgery lasts less than an hour and is performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis.

Shillcutt AdminlBtntor CARE FOR ALZHEIMER'S PATIENTS A study recently conducted by New York researchers and reported in the Journal of the American Magical Association shows that caregiver support helps family members delay placement of Alzheimer's patients in care facilities by about one year. This was thought to be of benefit because most of the patients who remained at home were in the early to middle stages of dementia, when placement in a nursing home is considered least appropriate. Half of the more than 200 spouses of Alzheimer's patients who volunteered for the ongoing study participated in six individual and family counseling sessions. They were then required to join support groups. Interestingly, researchers found that men kept their spouses home longer than women did. Family counseling sessions and support groups are two ways to cope with the emotional challenges of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease.
