When the lens of an eye that is normally clear becomes clouded, you have cataracts. You may develop cataracts in one or both eyes, and the condition is common as people age.
Cataracts develop slowly over time and cause no symptoms at first. As the condition progresses, you may find that you have difficulty driving at night, recognizing faces, or reading without straining your eyes. Cataract surgery in Wellington FL can make a dramatic difference in the clarity of your vision.
Recognizing the Symptoms of Cataracts
Please contact Family Vision Center PA right away if you notice several of the signs of needing cataract surgery. These include:
Appearance of halos around lights
Blurry or clouded vision
Colors are not as bright or crisp
Double vision in one or both eyes
Increased sensitivity to glare and light
Lack of clear night vision
Requiring brighter lights when reading or working on near vision activities
Your contact lens or eyeglasses prescription changes frequently
Cataracts form when an injury to the eye or normal aging changes the way tissues in the lens of the eye perform. Here are some additional risk factors associated with cataracts:
Excessive alcohol intake
Excess sunlight exposure
High blood pressure
Past eye surgeries
Although you cannot control some risk factors of cataracts, such as aging or genetics, changing certain lifestyle habits can reduce your risk of needing surgery. If you do need cataract surgery in Wellington FL, Dr. Mazza or Dr. Hayes will take excellent care of you.
