7 Signs You Might Have Eye Cataracts

cataracts

Cataracts are a common condition of the eye. They can appear in one eye or both eyes. By the time most people are eighty, they will have developed at least one cataract. In normal eyes, the lens is clear. With cataracts, the lens becomes cloudy and affects vision in a variety of ways. At Eye Doctors of Arizona, we can diagnose cataracts and offer treatment for them.

Cataract Signs

While the below signs can indicate cataracts, it is best to visit an optometry professional for a proper diagnosis. Common signs of cataracts include:

  • Blurry or cloudy vision
  • Colors that no longer look bright
  • Night vision becomes impaired
  • Artificial lights seem overly bright
  • A halo appears around the lights
  • Double vision
  • A frequent change of prescription eyeglasses or contacts

In the early stages of cataracts, eyeglasses and contact lenses can improve vision for a while. If you are having difficulty reading print, you can try using a magnifying glass or a brighter lamp to see well. The anti-glare coating can help you drive at night if glare is an issue. If your cataracts are affecting your life, surgery may be necessary to remove them. We can discuss with you all your eye care options after we perform your eye exam.

Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I recommend Eye Doctors of Arizona. The entire staff is always happy, pleasant, and helpful. Dr. Heller is wonderful... always thorough, and accurate. An excellent doctor. I was fortunate to meet his second son, Ben, who will be joining the practice soon. Now with their two offices, it is even more convenient to book appointments."
