A cataract is a clouding of the eye lens, which causes vision to become blurred and light entering the eye to appear blocked or scattered. If you have cataracts, it may feel like you are always looking through a foggy window. Symptoms can include difficulty reading, sensitivity to light and glare, seeing halos, double vision and poor night vision. During a comprehensive eye exam, we’ll perform a visual acuity test and utilize diagnostic tools to evaluate the overall anatomy of your eyes to accurately diagnose cataracts. In the United States more than 20 million people over the age of 40 have cataracts. Cataracts is often an age-related eye disorder, however factors such as diabetes, steroid use, smoking and excessive sun exposure can also contribute to the development of cataracts.
