What is a Cataract?

A cataract is a natural aging process that occurs inside your eye. It’s a gradual clouding of your eye’s clear, natural lens that can eventually make your vision less sharp. Much like a camera, your eye depends on a clear lens to properly focus images. A cataract may gradually make your vision cloudy, blurry or dull.


What are some symptoms of Cataracts?

In the early stages of a cataract symptoms may be so mild that you may not even realize that your vision is changing. However, as the cataract progresses, you will eventually experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Painless blurring of vision
  • Starbursts around lights at night
  • Double vision in one eye
  • Poor night vision
  • Fading or yellowing of colors
  • Frequent changes in glasses or contact lens prescriptions
