Six Signs that You May Have a Cataract
If you suffer from any of the following six symptoms, it may be a sign that you need to schedule a cataract surgery evaluation with the experts at Eye Centers of Florida:
Everything Looks Blurry
When light enters your eye, it is focused by the eye’s natural lens onto the retina, which is essential for vision. When the lens becomes cloudy due to a cataract, less light can pass through it. This means that less light can be focused on the retina, causing blurry vision. If cataracts go untreated, they can become even cloudier, resulting in foggy and filmy eyesight.
