A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside the eye causing your vision to be blurry. Cataracts are very common in older people. They can form in either or both eyes.


Common symptoms include:

  • Blurry vision

  • Colors that seem dull

  • Glare with oncoming headlights, lamps or sunlight may seem too bright. You might also see halo around lights.

  • Difficulty driving at night

  • Double vision

  • Frequent prescription changes in your glasses


Treatment of cataracts involves surgery.  The cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens.  Damaging ultraviolet rays can accelerate the growth of cataracts.  Therefore, it is recommended you wear sunglasses and a hat with a large brim to block the damaging ultraviolet sunlight.
