Cataracts

Have you noticed a gradual decrease in your vision? Are you over the age of 60? You may have a cataract. Over fifty percent of people over the age of 60 (and younger) suffer from cataracts. Almost everyone develops cataracts as they grow older. Cataract formations occur at different rates and can affect one or both eyes.

Cataract Symptoms

Cataracts are typically characterized by a "clouding" or "fogging" of your vision, often described as if looking through a fogged-up or cloudy window. Symptoms typically include cloudy, blurry or diminished vision, reduced night vision, sensitivity to light and glare, fading or yellowing of colors, double vision in a single eye, and frequent changes in glasses or contact prescriptions.
