DO I HAVE A CATARACT?
Because cataracts typically develop very slowly, most people don’t realize the lens in the eye is affected until their vision becomes dull or blurry. Common symptoms include:
- Cloudy or blurry vision
- Colors seem faded
- Glare or halos appear around headlights, lamps and in bright sun
- Double vision
- Frequent prescription changes
When a cataract begins to affect your ability to perform day-to-day tasks, treatment is required.
WHAT IF I HAVE A CATARACT?
You’re not alone! There are 24.4 million Americans age 40 or older with a cataract. Cataracts are a very common reason people lose vision, but they can be treated. You and your ophthalmologist should discuss your cataract symptoms. Together you can decide whether you are ready for cataract surgery.
