Often described as a clouding of the lens in the eye, cataracts can affect the vision of people of all ages, but particularly older patients. While it may not cause you any problems at first, a cataract can lead to blurred or double vision, as well as sensitivity in glary conditions. These symptoms can usually be countered through the use of new visual aids, such as prescription glasses and contact lenses. In more extreme cases, cataract surgery may be recommended to stabilise your vision.
