CATARACTS

 A cataract is a clouding of the eye's lens. If your vision has become blurry, cloudy or dim, or things you see are not as bright or colorful as they used to be, a cataract may have developed in one or both of your eyes. Many people say that their vision with cataracts is similar to the effect of looking through a dirty car windshield.

Symptoms:

         Painless cloudy, blurry or dim vision

         More difficulty seeing at night or in low light

         Sensitivity to light and glare

         Seeing halos around lights

         Faded or yellowed colors

         The need for brighter light for reading and other activities

         Frequent changes in eyeglass or contact lens prescription

         Double vision within one eye 

When a cataract causes bothersome vision problems that interfere with your daily activities, your ophthalmologist may recommend surgery to remove the cataract. With cataract surgery, your eye's cloudy natural lens is removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens implant (called an intraocular lens or IOL).
