IS CATARACT SURGERY FOR YOU?
Cataracts occur with increasing age (too many birthdays).
Normally UV light causes the lens proteins to change, which decreases the quality of your vision.
You may experience changes in your vision, such as:
- Vision can be blurred.
- Glare can be a problem, especially when driving at night.
- Poor colour perception, especially in the blue spectrum.
Cataracts usually occur over years with slow vision changes, but sometimes cataracts can occur quickly causing a rapid change to your vision. There are three main types of cataracts: nuclear, cortical and posterior subcapsular. Some cataracts are a combination of the three types.
