Symptoms of Cataracts
Cataracts are a clouding of the eyes crystalline lens. A common part of the aging process, cataracts can be slow to develop and many people are unaware of their presence until vision loss begins to occur.
Symptoms of cataracts include:
- Blurry or clouded vision
- Diminished color intensity
- Double vision in one eye
- Poor night vision
- Glare or halos around lights
These changes in vision may require frequent prescription changes and, when left untreated, can result in a complete loss of vision in the affected eye.
Close to 50 percent of people over the age of 65 develop cataracts and risks continue to increase with age. This is why it is important to increase the frequency of your vision screenings after the age of 60.
