Cataracts can represent a significant barrier to your eye health. As you age, or if others in your family have had cataracts, your risk for this disorder may increase. When you understand the symptoms of cataracts, you can monitor yourself for any signs of trouble so you can seek help effectively. Scheduling your annual eye exam can also help detect this disorder at the earliest possible stages. At Outlook Eyecare, we’ll partner with you to determine your overall eye health and involve you in every step of designing and executing your treatment plan.

Cataracts Symptoms

Cataracts occur when your eye’s natural lens thickens and becomes cloudy. One of the first symptoms of cataracts you may experience is a vague cloudiness impacting your vision. This may only affect a portion of your sight, and at early stages, it can come and go.

Next, you may experience diminished night vision or a lessening in the colors you perceive around you. This occurs because your natural lenses can take on hues as they thicken. You may also begin to have trouble in the presence of bright lights or see halos around lights. Double vision is not uncommon with cataracts. Each of these symptoms could point to other disorders of the eye as well, so it’s important to contact Outlook Eyecare as soon as you regularly experience any of these symptoms so we can help find the root cause.

Cataracts Treatment

During the early stages of cataracts, vision correction provided by your glasses or contacts may effectively address the disease. As it progresses, you and your doctor may discuss cataract surgery, which is a simple outpatient procedure to remove the natural lens that has become too cloudy and replace it with an artificial lens. You usually won’t require sedation as cataract surgery is performed routinely under local anesthetic only. You’ll generally heal in six to eight weeks and then be ready for your next cataract surgery if your vision issue is bilateral.
