Are you experiencing any of these symptoms:
- Is your vision blurry?
- Do colors appear dull?
- Are your glasses no longer correcting your vision?
- Does sunlight seem overly bright?
- Do you notice vision problems at night?
- Do you see halos around headlights or street lights at night?
If you have experienced any of these symptoms, you may have eye cataracts, a clouding of your eye's natural lens. Cataracts are a very common, natural part of aging that affect many of us. When the lens becomes cloudy, light and images are prevented from reaching the retina in the back of the eye, which sends those images to the brain.
Leading Cause of Vision Loss in People Over 55
The bad news is that cataracts are the leading cause of vision loss in people over 55 years of age. The good news is that, with today's advances in vision care, cataracts can be corrected with a simple, fast, no-stitch procedure. After having cataract surgery, many patients enjoy the best vision of their lives.
If you feel you may have cataracts, call the specialists at Eye Centers of Florida for an exam.
