Signs of Cataracts
While cataracts are more common in those over the age of 50, it's important for everyone to be aware of the symptoms. One of the first signs of cataracts is the buildup of proteins on the lens of your eye, causing blurriness in your vision.
At first, you may not notice your cataracts. Many people don't realize they have cataracts until they have an eye exam. Over time, you may begin to notice symptoms like intense glare, halos around lights, difficulty driving at night, and faded colors. Some symptoms are subtle. For example, you may find that reading is more difficult, or that you're having trouble adapting to different lighting. You might simply think that your prescription has changed.
Cataract Surgery Candidacy
To determine if you're a good candidate for cataract surgery, visit your eye doctor. During your eye exam, your optometrist or ophthalmologist will examine any cloudiness on the lens of your eye. If you have cataracts, they will determine the best option for treatment.
What to Expect During Cataract Surgery
If you're nervous about what to expect during cataract surgery, rest assured that it is a simple procedure that typically takes less than 30 minutes. During the surgery, your optometrist or ophthalmologist will make a tiny incision in your eye and break up the cloudy lens. They'll then replace it with a clear artificial lens. After the surgery, you'll regain clear vision and be able to resume normal activities like driving or reading within two to four weeks. The hardest part of the procedure may be finding someone to drive you home afterwards.
