How Cataracts Affect Your Vision

If your vision has gradually changed with age and things don't seem quite as sharp or in focus as they used to, you may be suffering from cataracts. A cataract is the clouding of the normally-transparent lens of the eye. This is due to a build-up of natural proteins in the eye that can become gradually larger over time.

Symptoms of Cataracts

  • Double vision
  • Dullness of colors
  • Frequent changes in vision correction prescriptions
  • Poor night vision
