There are a variety of factors that impact your risk of developing cataracts. Find out if you may be at an elevated risk of this serious vision condition.
Cataracts are a common age-related vision condition impacting more than 25 million Americans. When cataracts develop, your eye’s lens becomes cloudy, preventing it from focusing light properly on your retina. Over time, this results in a gradual deterioration of your vision and if left untreated, cataracts can eventually lead to blindness.
Cataracts are one of the most common age-related vision conditions impacting Americans today. Often, the initial symptoms are very subtle, making it hard to tell whether you need to seek treatment. This is one of the reasons why it is crucial that you receive annual eye exams after the age of 40. Early detection is the best way to prevent vision loss.
We’ve created the following quiz to help you determine whether you may be experiencing the early warning signs of cataracts. Take it to see if you may be ready for an eye exam and cataract screening.
At the Northeastern Eye Institute, we have a lot of goals, depending on the specific procedure in question. However, our overriding goal is simple: protecting your vision and ensuring you can keep seeing clearly for as long as possible.
The simple reality is that cataracts afflict tens of millions of older Americans. You can do everything right, get all the necessary eye exams, take all the recommended steps to protect your eyes and you can still suffer from cataracts.
Cataracts are as serious as they are common. While more than 90 percent of Americans over the age of 75 suffer from cataracts, cataracts represent a potentially devastating threat to the integrity of your vision. A cataract, which is a clouding in the lens of the eye, must be treated quickly, or it can leave you almost completely blind.
