Potential Effects

Cataracts are a condition in which the eye's lens becomes cloudy or opaque, causing blurred vision. Other common cataract symptoms can include:

  • Decreased night vision
  • Sensitivity to light and glare
  • Fading or yellowing of colors
  • Clouded or dim vision
  • Seeing "halos" around lights
  • Double vision in a single eye

After a thorough eye exam and other tests, our optometrists will be able to determine if you have cataracts and find the best treatment plan. Your eye doctor can help improve your vision with a new prescription for glasses or contact lenses in some cases. MyEyeDr. has a variety of styles, brands, and products to get you seeing and looking your best.

If cataract surgery is required, then your local MyEyeDr. practice will refer you to a specialist and help you through the preparation and recovery stages. Your optometrist can also suggest ways to reduce cataract development, like wearing proper sunglasses to protect against harmful UV rays.
