WHAT IS A CATARACT?

What Is A Cataract?

A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of your eye. For people who have cataracts seeing through cloudy lenses is a bit like looking through a frosty or fogged-up window. Cataract surgery is a medically necessary procedure that removes and replaces your cloudy lens.

WHEN TO SEE A DOCTOR?

When To See A Doctor

Make an appointment for an eye exam if you notice any changes in your vision. If you develop sudden vision changes, such as double vision or blurriness, see your doctor right away.

Most cataracts develop when aging or injury changes the tissue that makes up your eye’s lens. Some cataracts are caused by inherited genetic disorders that cause other health problems and increase your risk of cataracts.
