What Are Cataracts & How Do They Affect My Eyes?

 

Over time, cataracts can affect your vision, and may end up limiting your activities and ability to enjoy life. Your eye works a lot like a camera, using a lens to focus on an image. If your camera lens became cloudy, you’d have a hard time viewing the world around you. Just like a camera, the lenses in your eyes can become cloudy as you age, making it harder for you to see. This is a natural condition, known as a cataract. Today cataracts are the leading cause of visual loss in adults 55 and older. Some Common Symptoms of Cataracts:

  • Blurred Vision
  • Seeing halos around Lights
  • Frequent changes to eye glasses prescription
  • Poor night Vision
