What are Cataracts?

A cataract is a progressive clouding of the eye’s natural lens that interferes with light passing through to the retina. The lens is the primary focusing mechanism of the eye and as we age, this normally clear lens can become cloudy or yellow and loses its natural elasticity and the ability to change focus. This in turn leads to reduced vision.

Symptoms of Cataracts

  • Blurry or double vision
  • Faded colours and reduced contrast
  • Halos around lights
  • Trouble with bright lights
  • Trouble seeing at night

Treatment Options for Cataracts

Currently there is no medical treatment to reverse or prevent cataract formation, but they can be successfully removed with cataract surgery.
