Cataracts And Loss of Sight
Updated: Dec 12, 2020
If you are suffering from vision loss you need an eye exam from a professional optometrist for a diagnosis and treatment as soon as possible. Only with an eye exam can an optometrist accurately determine the severity and progression of eye disease that you are experiencing.
Cataracts are caused by clouding of the lens in the eye which is the clear part of the eye that helps to focus light or an image in the retina. Through an eye examination, it can be determined if cataracts affect one eye or both; however, it is not “spread” from one eye to the next. The lens is made up primarily from water and protein in the eye, keeps the lens clear, and allows the light to pass through it. As we age the protein in the eye may lump and begin to cloud a small area of the lens. This could grow larger, clouding more and more of the lens in the eye by making it more and more difficult to see.
At TRILLIUM EYECARE our Optometrists diagnose for the presence of cataracts not only with an eye exam, but they will consult with you about the symptoms that you are experiencing. These symptoms may include faded colours, blurry vision, halos around light, problems with bright lights and seeing at night. Cataracts statistically account for 20 million people globally going blind and 33 percent of visual impairment worldwide.
