Cataracts can affect the vision of people of all ages, but particularly for those later in life. It is a clouding of the lens in the middle of your eye and generally causes blurriness or hazy vision, similar to “looking out through a dirty windscreen” as well as becoming more light and glare sensitive. The vision can usually be improved with prescription glasses, sunglasses and/or contact lenses.
When the cataract is more mature or beginning to impact on your quality of life is when cataract surgery is recommended with an ophthalmologist.
As part of our Optical Fingerprint™ assessment, the Insightful Eyecare team can diagnose cataracts and explore the best course of action for you. Book online for an appointment today.
