How Cataracts Affect Your Lifestyle and Daily Activities

Accept it, as we grow older, our bodies naturally undergo serious changes once we enter the aging process and move closer to our senior years

One change that can occur in our aging process is the blurring of our vision once we get up there in age.

There’s no secret that most people, if not all, get cataracts once they hit their 50’s and 60’s.

A cataract is the clouding of the eye’s natural lens. It blocks the passage of light into the eye, causing blurry vision.

This can eventually lead to numerous difficulties in terms of daily activities such as:

  • Trouble in driving, especially at night
  • Problems in seeing at night
  • Loss of vision at times

When cataracts first begin to form, they don’t immediately impact vision just yet. However, once they continue to grow and get ripe, they can eventually interfere in your life by significantly affecting your sight.

Here are several symptoms associated with cataract:

  • Increased sensitivity to strong light and glare
  • Seeing halos around lights
  • Constant cloudy, blurry and double vision
  • Colors appear faded

The best chance one has for preventing cataracts is to simply avoid proven risk factors that can increase the risk of developing this eye condition. Cataract risk factors include steroid use, diabetes, severe exposure to sunlight and UV rays, unhealthy eating habits, and certain eye injuries and traumas.

As for treating cataract, there’s really only one way to deal with it and that’s by removing it through cataract surgery.
