Helping Manage Changes to Your Sight
Cataracts are often a common part of aging, affecting your vision and making it harder to complete daily tasks. While cataracts can make it harder to see, we can help manage this condition.
Visit InVision Eye Care, and we can help manage cataracts as they progress. Our team can recommend ways to help your vision function at its best.
What Is a Cataract?
A cataract clouds your eye’s natural lens, typically caused by age. Cataracts occur when proteins and fibres in the eye break down and clump together, making the lens opaque. Besides age, eye conditions, previous eye surgery or certain medical conditions like diabetes can lead to cataracts.
You may not notice a cataract developing initially, but this condition can lead to vision loss. As cataracts progress, it can feel like you’re looking through a frosty window during a Saskatchewan winter.
Other symptoms of cataracts include:
- A need for brighter light to see clearly
- Clouded, dim, or blurry vision
- Difficulty seeing at night
- Double vision in one eye
- Faded colours
- Light sensitivity
How Can You Manage Cataracts?
Managing cataracts begins with an eye exam and diagnosis—our team will complete several tests to see how well you can see and determine how far your cataract has progressed. We can take a detailed look at your eye to look for early signs of cataracts.
Managing cataracts depends on this condition’s progression. The early stages of cataracts are manageable with brighter lighting or a stronger glasses prescription. When cataracts significantly affect your vision, cataract surgery is typically the only way to help you see clearly once more.
