Q&A with Dr’s Leong & Bui

Our Eye Doctors Answer Your Eyecare Questions

What causes cataracts to form?

Dr. Leong: When a cataract forms, the lens inside the eye becomes cloudy, like a frosted window. They are NOT caused by overuse of eyes on computers or reading.

A cataract is also NOT a tumor or growth of film which cover the front of the eye. Often, cataracts develop as part of the aging process from a change in the chemical composition of the lens. Years of exposure to sunlight and other sources of UV light can contribute to cataract development.

Also cataracts can be caused by eye injuries, certain medications such as steroids, certain eye diseases and body conditions, and some birth defects. No one can predict how quickly cataracts will progress. Your eye doctor can assess cataracts and tell you if cataract surgery is required.

What Our Patient's Say

I was extremely impressed with Dr Leong when I showed up at her office without an appointment in early May. I had noticed something odd with my 1-month old’s son eye while I had been up with him the night before. There was a white reflection in his left eye. I of course had gone on the Internet and looked this up and had convinced myself that my son had retinablastoma (a type of cancer).

Dr. Leong’s receptionist was very gracious when this sleep deprived crazed mom showed up without an appointment. She let me know that Dr. Leong was not in yet. She often came in early and would be there shortly. Dr. Leong saw me immediately when she arrived. She was calm and reassuring when she examined my son, taking my concerns seriously. She quickly assessed that she suspected that my son had a cataract in his eye. She then tried to get him in to see an opthamologist that day.

Unfortunately, the pediatric opthamologist was unable to see him. Dr. Leong then spent the day on the phone between her appointments trying to get him into the vision clinic at Alberta Children’s Hospital. They were also unable to see me so Dr. Leong made me an appt with the opthamologist on call at the Rocky View Hospital the next day, which was of course the Saturday of the may long weekend. Her diagnosis was confirmed. I am happy to report that we have since seen the pediatric opthamologist at Alberta Children’s Hospital and Drew’s surgery dare is scheduled.

Thank you Dr. Leong for working so hard to help Drew. Your commitment to getting Drew seen was admirable. We are unable to express how much your diligence and persistence has benefited Drew, our family and his sight. Thank You. – Michelle
