Cataracts are the natural clouding of the eye’s crystalline lens with age. They can cause blurred vision, faded colors, light sensitivity, double vision, and trouble seeing at night.
You might be at risk of developing cataracts if you are overe 60, have had an eye injury, or if you have spent a lot of time in the sun. After cataracts have been diagnosed by an optometrist, the symptoms can be managed to a certain degree with a change in glasses or magnifiers. Once cataracts progress to the point of impacting daily activities, cataract surgery is an effective treatment option.
