See Clearly After Cataracts

What Is A Cataract?

Cataract is a clouding of the natural lens of the eye. Most cataracts are the result of aging, though some form as a result of disease, injury or genetic factors. Cataracts are leading cause of visual disability in people over the age of 65, and cataract surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures performed in the United States today. Adult cataracts develop slowly and painlessly with gradual loss of vision. If left untreated, cataracts will worsen over time and interfere with everyday activity such as reading or driving. Night vision problems, including glare and halos are especially common. When cataracts are in their early stages, people can be helped by brighter lighting and possibly stronger glasses. As cataracts worsen, however, most people do require surgery to correct the problem. Currently, there are no eye drops or medications that can reverse the formation of cataract.

Symptoms of Cataracts Include:

  • Cloudy or filmy vision
  • Fading of colors
  • Poor night vision, especially when driving
  • Glare and light sensitivity
  • Double vision
  • Halos around lights
  • The pupil of the eye appears milky
