A cataract is a clouding of the lens of your eye which may cause your vision to be blurry or misty. They appear as opaque, cloudy patches on your eye.
Having cataract is a common problem insomuch there are over 40 million cataract surgeries a year, worldwide.
But what are the tell-tale signs of cataracts?
- Double vision
- You see colors faded, or have a yellowish hue to your sight
- You are not able to see well in very bright light
- You have dim vision
- Your glasses are getting less effective (if you’re wearing any)
If you experience any of these symptoms it’s important to consult with an ophthalmologist so they could examine you and address the issues if needed.
