Cloudy Vision May Signify a Cataract
Your eyes’ natural lenses are normally crystal clear. As you grow older, proteins begin to build-up in the lens, gradually diminishing your vision. This is a cataract. Most cataracts progress slowly, and many people can live for years with the condition without the need for surgery.
Symptoms of Cataracts
In the early stages, you may not have any cataract symptoms. As they grow in size and opacity, you may begin to notice:
- Cloudy or blurry vision
- Colors appear muted or dull
- “Halo” or haze around lights, especially at night
- Double or multiple vision
Regular eye exams can alert you to the presence of cataracts so treatment can be administered, if necessary. The only way to correct a cataract is through cataract surgery. Contact us today to learn more about cataract surgery in Rapid City.
