Symptoms of Cataract

Cataracts occur when the natural lens of the eye becomes cloudy, causing vision problems such as blurriness, glare, and difficulty seeing at night. This condition is often associated with aging, but it can also be caused by factors such as genetics, diabetes, and smoking. If left untreated, cataracts can significantly impact your ability to see clearly and perform daily tasks.

Frequently Asked Questions.

The primary treatment for cataracts is surgery. During cataract surgery, the clouded natural lens of the eye is removed and replaced with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL). In some cases, early-stage cataracts may be managed with changes in eyeglass prescriptions or lifestyle adjustments, but surgery is often necessary as the cataract progresses.

Your eye doctor can determine if you need cataract surgery through a comprehensive eye exam. If cataracts are significantly affecting your vision and impacting your daily activities, such as driving or reading, surgery may be recommended.

Cataract surgery has a very high success rate, with approximately 95% of patients experiencing improved vision following the procedure. Most patients achieve significantly clearer vision and experience a better quality of life after cataract surgery.

In most cases, patients are advised not to drive immediately after cataract surgery. Your doctor will provide specific instructions based on your individual situation, but typically, you’ll need someone to drive you home after the surgery. Once your vision has sufficiently improved and you feel comfortable, you can usually resume driving, which is usually within a few days to a week after surgery.

While many patients experience improved vision after cataract surgery, some may still require glasses for certain activities, such as reading or driving at night. Your need for glasses will depend on factors such as the type of intraocular lens implanted and any pre-existing vision conditions you may have. Your doctor will discuss your specific visual needs and expectations during the pre-surgery consultation.
