what are Cataracts?

For most people, cataracts are simply a normal part of the aging process that usually develops after an individual reaches 40, the typical age when the proteins of the eye's lens can start to degrade or lump together. The fogginess resulting from cataracts gradually worsens and keeps light from hitting the retina correctly. This clouding of the eye's lens leads to vision impairment, and often, total blindness if not detected early and treated properly. Owing to advancements in ocular techniques and technologies, there are many solutions available. Call our team at Focal Point Vision in San Antonio, TX to schedule an appointment, and learn how we can improve your eye health.

Cataracts FAQ

How do cataracts form?

The majority of cataracts form due to aging or injury, which can change the tissue making up the lens of the eye. However, there are a number of other factors, such as genetic disorders, health problems, other eye conditions, previous eye surgery, and diabetes.

How do cataracts affect your vision?

As cataracts are a cloudy segment of the eye's natural lens, they often cause blurry vision. As they spread, they will gradually block more and more light from reaching the retina, making it even harder to see. These effects are made especially prominent at night.

When should cataracts be removed?

Cataracts should be removed as soon as you notice them causing impediments to your eyesight. This can be in a number of forms, including excessive fogginess and double vision. If you notice your vision is constantly leaving you feeling disoriented or distracted due to cataracts, it is likely a good idea to schedule an appointment with one of our experts.
