Cataract: All You Need To Know

Signs and symptoms of cataracts include:
  • Clouded, blurred or dim vision.
  • Increasing difficulty with vision at night.
  • Sensitivity to light and glare.
  • Need for brighter light for reading and other activities.
  • Seeing “halos” around lights.
  • Fading or yellowing of colours.
 No medication can eliminate existing cataracts, and no eyewear can completely counteract their effects.
Some ophthalmologists are seeking nonsurgical solutions. This is generally a safe, outpatient procedure.but at this time, no other solution has been found.
