As the eye ages, cataracts form in the lens of the eye due to clouding caused by protein deposition. This causes blurry vision, daytime and/or nighttime glare, difficulty with contrast and color. Cataracts may take years to develop or may worsen quickly. Our doctors diagnose and monitor cataracts, and make the appropriate treatment recommendations. As the cataract develops we make refractive and lifestyle changes to compensate. Eventually, surgery may be needed to remove the cataract.
