What are cataracts?

Cataracts are a common eye condition characterised by cloudy areas forming in one or both of your eyes.

While the condition mainly develops with age, cataracts can also be caused as a result of injury, genetic factors, UV exposure, lifestyle factors or certain diseases, such as diabetes.

Caused by a build-up of protein in the eye’s lens, cataracts prevent light from passing through to the retina as normal. This then leads to a variety of sight-related issues such as blurry vision, glare sensitivity and colours appearing faded.

Do you need cataract surgery?

Cataracts can only be treated through surgery, removing the clouded lens and replacing it with an artificial alternative.

However, the urgency of when you need cataract surgery will vary depending on how your cataracts impact your vision and daily life.

Since the process of your eye’s natural lens clouding is very gradual, symptoms like blurred vision and difficulties seeing in low light will often worsen over time, eventually hindering your ability to perform normal day-to-day activities.

If your cataracts are already impacting your ability to perform activities like reading, driving or recognising faces, cataract surgery may be recommended to restore your vision.

As with any type of surgery, consulting a healthcare professional is your best port of call. They will be best placed to answer any questions you may have, assess the extent of your condition and work out the more appropriate treatment plan.
