Is Your Vision Getting Foggy?

Cataracts are a common eye condition that occurs when your clear crystalline lens becomes rigid and opaque. When this happens, your lens can become hazy or milky, affecting your vision.

While cataracts can develop as you age, certain medical conditions, like diabetes, can increase its risk of developing and over time can make you legally blind. However, our team can provide you with ways of managing your cataracts.

If you’re struggling with cataracts, please call us today to book an appointment with our team and find the help you need.

Types of Cataracts

Nuclear cataracts affect the centre of your lens. As they develop, your lens may turn yellow or brown. During the early stages, nuclear cataracts can cause nearsightedness or even temporarily improve your near distance vision; but over time, it will become harder to see clearly.

Cortical cataracts develop on the outer edges of your lens and appear as white, wedge-shaped streaks. Over time, the cataract can cover your entire lens and impair your vision.

Posterior subcapsular cataracts develop at the back of your lens as a small opaque area directly affecting the path of light entering your eyes.

Congenital cataracts form during childhood or at birth. They can be genetic or caused by other conditions like myotonic dystrophy, galactosemia, neurofibromatosis type 2, or rubella.

Managing Cataracts

Please make sure you have regular eye exams to manage your risk of developing cataracts. Once we diagnose its existence, we can provide you with options on how to manage them.

Glasses and contact lenses can help manage refractive errors caused by cataracts. All you have to do is book an eye exam and we can get to work finding a prescription matched to your needs.

Cataract surgery is the only way to treat cataracts. During cataract surgery, your ophthalmologist replaces your cataract lens with an artificial intraocular lens, helping you achieve clear vision.
