Senior Eyes: 7 Symptoms of Cataracts

By • Jan 17th, 2015 • Category: General Eye Health


Over 20 million Americans over the age of 40 have a cataract in at least one of their eyes and the number is expected to rise to 30 million by 2020. Methods exist to prevent cataracts and to treat patients who suffer from the degenerative condition, but there are ways to determine whether or not you may have a cataract in one or both eyes by considering these symptoms:

– Slightly cloudy, blurry, or dimmed vision (this can begin small and grow larger as time passes)

– Difficulty seeing at night

– Over-sensitivity to bright light or glare

– “Haloing” effect around lights

– Rapid decrease in vision prescription

– Color fading or yellowing

– Double vision effect in one eye

If you experience a sudden decrease or loss in vision, see your eye doctor immediately. Even slight changes in vision can be a sign of a cataract as you age, so making regular appointments for an eye exam is crucial to maintaining and treating your vision problems.

Of course, only an experienced ophthalmologist can determine diagnose a cataract and perform a cataract surgery to treat the afflicted eye. The team at Sound Eye and Laser has the expertise and equipment to safely and successfully perform cataract surgery and guide you through the post-surgical process.
