What is a Cataract, Anyway?


Are you struggling with foggy, blurry, or impaired vision? Is it no longer easy to do even the simplest tasks?

Are you squinting or straining your eyes to read, drive, or watch television? It’s not your imagination: you could be experiencing the signs of cataracts.

And you’re not alone either because it’s an extremely common age-related eye condition that can gradually rob you of your clear vision. Wondering what you can do about it? Keep reading to discover what a cataract is, how it affects your vision, and what you can do about it!

The Foggy World of Cataracts

Foggy, blurry vision. Feeling like you’re looking at the world through a dirty mirror.

Sound familiar? The signs of cataracts are frustrating, and it often seems like your vision is just getting worse. But once you turn 40, your risk of developing foggy vision courtesy of cataracts goes up.

You may not even realize you have cataracts at first because they can form for years without affecting your vision.

How Cataracts Affect Your Vision

Cataracts form because proteins build up on the lens in your eye. As these proteins clump together on your lens, your vision suffers.

The lens, which was once easy to see through, suddenly becomes cloudy. Now, everything you see is like it’s covered in fog or a sheet covering it.

Colors are less vibrant, and the clarity of your vision steadily decreases. As cataracts progress, even the simplest everyday tasks like dishes, cooking dinner, and hanging out with your grandchildren become more difficult. You can thank your cloudy lens for this, as it continues to impair your vision.

Recognizing the Symptoms

There’s a good chance you won’t realize you have cataracts, at least at first. Symptoms often creep up on patients slowly over time.

You may experience this, like seeing poorly at night, glare, halos, increased light sensitivity, and noticing a yellowish tint on most things you look at. But you could easily brush these things off and say it’s just your vision worsening because you’re getting older.

Intraocular Lenses (IOLs): Your Key to Clear Vision

You’ll have your natural lens removed and replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL). An IOL is an artificial lens that ensures you can see clearly but can also correct visual problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and even presbyopia.

Imagine not having to rely on reading glasses or squinting to see clearly, and you get just a taste of the power of premium IOLs!

Cataract surgery is a low-risk, quick, and painless procedure that can change your life in ways you never thought possible. You’ll be able to enjoy activities you love without the frustration of poor vision holding you back.
