Cataracts

What are they?

A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s natural lens. Cataracts are the most common cause of vision loss in individuals over the age of 40.

Signs and Symptoms

Initial stages of cataracts may have a small effect on your vision. Individuals may notice a small amount of blur. A cataract may make nighttime driving more difficult as oncoming headlights may produce more glare than normal. Colors may not appear as bright.

Risk factors

Ultraviolet radiation

Diabetes

Hypertension

Obesity

Smoking

Prolonged use of steroid medications

Statin medicines used to reduce cholesterol

Previous eye injury

Prevention and Treatment

Protective sunglasses that block 100 percent of the sun’s UV rays and a hat are great ways to reduce exposure to harmful UV rays. Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures done in the United States. It is a simple, relatively painless procedure to regain vision. During the surgery, the surgeon will replace your cloudy lens with a clear plastic lens. Most patients obtain sharp vision following the procedure.
