What Are Cataracts?
Cataracts occur when proteins in the lens of your eye begin to break down, usually due to aging after the age of forty. This breakdown is what causes the symptoms that you may notice.
The Warning Signs of Cataracts
Cloudy or blurred vision. This is probably the most noticeable change. Things may have a hazy appearance.
Double vision. Cataracts can cause light to become scattered as it enters through the lens. This can cause you to see two or more images of a single object.
Halos around light sources. Light sources may appear to have a glowing ring or halo around them. These bright rings may cause difficulties while driving at night.
Poor night vision. Cataracts can cause your vision to appear dim or darker than usual. This results in trouble seeing at night or in low-light settings.
Sensitivity to lights. Another common symptom is sensitivity to glares of light. This can often cause pain and discomfort.
Colors are difficult to perceive. Progressing cataracts can turn a yellow or brown-like color, causing things you see to have a yellow tint. This may lead to difficulty in your ability to perceive colors properly.
Frequent changes in vision. If you find that you frequently need more substantial contacts or glasses, you should contact our optometrists to discuss the possibility of having cataracts.
