What is Cataract ? A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. Most cataracts are related to aging, Cataracts are very common in older people A cataract can occur in either or both eyes. It cannot spread from one eye to the other. If the eye lens is cloudy from a cataract, the image you see will be blurred . Colors seem faded and double vision or multiple images in one eye will be the common symptoms of it. Cataract is detected through a comprehensive eye exam that includes: Visual acuity test,Dilated eye exam and Tonometry. Maintained by Visual Aids Centre Owner: Vipin Buckshey

Slide4:

Causes of Cataract As we age, some of the protein may clump together and start to cloud a small area of the eye lens. Over time, the cataract may grow larger and cloud more of the lens, making it harder to see. Certain diseases such as diabetes , can also be a cause for it. Personal behavior such as smoking and alcohol use can also be a cause for it. Maintained by Visual Aids Centre Owner: Vipin Buckshey

Slide5:

Treatment of Cataract The symptoms of early cataract may be improved with new eyeglasses, brighter lighting, anti-glare sunglasses, or magnifying lenses. If above measures do not help, surgery is the only effective treatment. Surgery involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial lens. A cataract needs to be removed only when vision loss interferes with your everyday activities, such as driving, reading, or watching TV. Maintained by Visual Aids Centre Owner: Vipin Buckshey
