Cataract Symptoms

Signs and symptoms of cataracts include:

  • Clouded, blurred, or dim vision
  • Increasing difficulty with vision at night
  • Sensitivity to light and glare
  • Need for brighter light for reading and other activities
  • Seeing “halos” around lights
  • Frequent changes in lens prescription
  • Fading or yellowing of colours
  • Double vision in a single eye

Types of Cataracts

There are several types of cataracts, including: 

Nuclear Cataracts

A nuclear cataract causes the lens to gradually turn to a yellow or brown colour.

A cortical cataract begins as whitish opacity on the outer edge of the lens and slowly extends throughout the entire lens over time.

A posterior subcapsular cataract starts as a small opaque area near the back of the lens and quickly progresses.

Congenital cataracts are present at birth or developed during childhood. They don’t always affect vision, but if they do, they’re typically removed quickly.

Cataract Surgery Explained 

Cataract surgery is an effective treatment that typically follows these steps:

  • Your surgeon will use a numbing agent or medication to numb the area before the surgery. 
  • Using a blade or laser, your surgeon will create a small incision in your eye and, if necessary, break up the cataract lens.
  • Using a suction device, the surgeon removes the cataract lens and inserts a replacement intraocular lens.
  • Your surgeon will close the incision and allow you to rest for at least 15 minutes before approving you to head home.
