A cataract is a condition that refers to the clouding of the eye’s lens due to a build-up of protein fibers over time. Though cataracts cause your vision to deteriorate as they develop, they do not affect the health of your eye.
During the early stages of cataract development, there are generally few noticeable signs, but as the cataracts progress, you may begin to notice symptoms including:
- Increased light sensitivity
- The appearance of severe glare from lamps or the sun
- Poor night vision
- Double vision
- A sense of fading colors
- Frequently changing eyeglass prescriptions
Generally, these symptoms will only become worse with time and your vision will continue to deteriorate. If left untreated, cataracts will eventually lead to vision problems and blindness, so it's important that you find a qualified eye surgeon to perform cataract surgery.
