What are Cataracts?

Cataracts is a very common eye condition which generally develops with age. Cataracts is the “clouding over” of your lens, causing vision problems over time. By booking an appointment to see your optometrist, they can catch early warning signs and help you manage your symptoms.

Types of Cataracts

Cataracts, like a lot of other eye conditions, come in a variety of forms. Each one develop differently, but all could cause blindness without the help of an optometrist managing your symptoms.

  • Nuclear cataracts form in the center of your lens
  • Cortical cataracts form as wedge like shapes on the outer edges of your lens
  • Congenital cataracts occurs when you are born, usually stemming from genetics or health problems at birth
  • Posterior subcapsular cataracts form at the back of your lens

Treatment Options

Thankfully, because of how common cataracts are, there are a veritable slew of options available for patients looking to treat their cataracts.

Over the years, optometrists have developed glasses and contacts to correct vision problems attributed to cataracts. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, doctors can also recommend surgery to alleviate your symptoms.
