What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts are a common age-related condition where the natural lens becomes cloudy, leading to decreased vision. In the early stages, the visual impairment caused by cataracts can often be managed with the help of prescription eyeglasses or better lighting. However, as the cataracts progress, vision becomes more significantly impaired, at which point surgery becomes necessary. Surgery involves replacing the clouded lens with an artificial one to restore the patient’s vision.

Symptoms of Cataracts

If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, it’s important to schedule an appointment with your eye doctor as soon as possible:

  • Blurry or cloudy vision
  • Difficulty seeing at night
  • Sensitivity to light and glare
  • Seeing “halos” around lights
  • Frequent prescription changes
  • Dull or yellowing colors
  • Double vision in one eye
