Cataracts can cause blurry vision, which can make tasks like reading or driving difficult. At New Vision Optical Wilmette in Wilmette, IL, we provide eye exams to learn more about your condition and treatment to help you see clearly. Before visiting us, learn about some symptoms of cataracts below:


What are Cataracts?

The first thing you may be wondering is what causes cataracts. Over time, the proteins in your lens break down and start to clump together. As a result, a cloudy area forms in the lens, known as a cataract. It is important to seek treatment for cataracts as soon as possible since it can cause blindness in addition to hazy or blurry vision.

Understanding the Symptoms

If you have cataracts, you may exhibit various symptoms. Some of these symptoms include:

•             Blurry vision

•             Double vision

•             Difficulty seeing a night

•             Halos around lights

•             Faded colors

When to Seek Treatment

When cataracts are significantly affecting your vision, we recommend visiting our optician. We will perform an eye exam to confirm if you have cataracts and suggest the necessary treatment. In the early stages, you may simply need an upgrade for your eyeglass or contact lens prescription. However, if the cataracts have progressed, surgery might be necessary. During the procedure, the cloudy lens is broken down into tiny pieces so it can be easily removed and replaced with a new lens to provide clearer vision.
