What Is A Cataract?

A cataract is a common eye disorder, which occurs when the clouding of the normally clear, natural crystalline lens of the eye. This clouding process will progress, until eventually there is a complete loss of vision. Neither diet nor laser treatment will make the cataract go away because this is a natural process of aging.  An ophthalmologist (eye surgeon) can diagnose cataracts during a routine eye exam and determine if eye surgery is necessary.  Fortunately, cataract surgery can help restore your vision, long before you experience a loss of vision significant enough to interfere with your daily activities.

Cataract Symptoms Include:

  • Light sensitivity
  • Halos (around lights)
  • Blurred or cloudy vision
  • Difficulty driving at night, even night blindness
  • Glare
  • Problems with depth perception
  • Colors seem faded
  • Frequent prescription changes
