Cataracts: Introduction

View Video

A cataract is the clouding of the natural lens inside the eye. It can cause images to become distorted or blurred, bright colors to become dull and nighttime driving to become more difficult. While cataracts can be caused by other factors, the most are simply caused by natural aging and cannot be prevented.

When to Visit an Ophthalmologist

The length of time for a cataract to develop can vary from a few months to several years. Vision loss from cataracts is gradual, which is why many patients have difficulty noticing the early symptoms.

We recommend a screening with one of our Doctors, if you notice decreased vision or you suffer from any of the following symptoms:

  • Cloudy, blurred or double vision
  • Halos around lights
  • Glare and light sensitivity
  • Difficulty reading in low lighting
  • Colors become dull
  • Frequent change in your glasses prescription

Cataracts are treated in three ways:

  • Continued observation by an eye doctor (ophthalmologist or optometrist)
  • Stronger eye glass prescription
  • Cataract Surgery which is cataract removal with lens implant
  • Cataract surgery is recommended when your quality of life has been diminished because of poor vision.
