CATARACTS

DESCRIPTION

Aging is the most common cause of cataracts. Normal proteins in the lens start to break down and the lens becomes cloudy. People over age 60 usually start to have some clouding of their lenses. however, vision problems may not happen until years later.

SYMPTOMS

• blurry vision (similar to looking through a frosty or fogged-up window)

• seeing double

• being extra sensitive to glare from lights

• having trouble seeing well at night

• colors seem faded

• change in the eye's refractive error (prescription)

HOW IS CATARACTS DETECTED?

• History - determines if vision difficultes are limiting daily activites and investigav

TREATMENT

The symptoms of early cataracts may be improved with new glasses, brighter lighting, anti-glare sunglasses or magnifying lenses. If these options don't help significantly, surgery is the only effective treatment. 

Surgery involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial lens. This is generally a safe, outpatient procedure.
