Leaving developed cataracts untreated should be a big no-no.
In most cases, cataracts are bound to worsen over time if left untreated. In those cases, cataracts can gradually cause a continual reduction of vision.
While it is true that an immediate action is not yet urgent during early stages wherein a cataract does not interfere that much yet in your daily living, it is most likely bound to develop along the way. Some people become legally blind due to an untreated cataract.
Worse, it can go as far as causing total blindness if left untreated for long periods of time.
Untreated cataracts have the potential to be hyper-mature, a state wherein it is significantly more difficult to remove them as a procedure can likely cause further complications.
Despite all of the tools available and medical advancements, it is still improbable to predict just how quickly a cataract can worsen. With that, it is up to you to observe and be wary of your cataract to be able to map out a corresponding action once the need arises.
That’s why once you notice that your vision constantly worsens, it’s definitely time for you to immediately have your eyes checked as a prompt treatment might already be needed.
