What are Cataracts?
So, let’s break down cataracts. A cataract is a common eye condition that occurs when your clear crystalline lens becomes rigid and opaque, leading to a milky, hazy, or yellow-ish discoloration. As this develops, it can affect your vision quality and even cause blindness in severe cases.
If you have cataracts, some symptoms you could experience include:
- Faded or muted colors
- Blurred vision
- Double vision
- Frequent prescription changes for your glasses or contact lenses
- Light sensitivity
- Glare or halos appearing around light sources
- Refractive errors like nearsightedness or farsightedness
