Regular Cataract Check-Ups

Cataracts are the clouding or fogging of the eye’s natural lens. They progress slowly, usually due to the natural aging process, but they can occur at any age. 

Cataracts can be manageable at early stages with eyeglasses, but they can impact vision and require surgery if they continue to progress. At Parkview Optometry, we monitor your cataract development through comprehensive eye exams and determine the next steps based on your needs.

It’s important to schedule regular eye exams so our team can stay updated on any changes in your vision. Contact us to schedule your appointment today.

Symptoms of Cataracts

Cataracts can have a range of different symptoms and affect vision in different ways, including:

  • Blurred or foggy vision
  • Decreased night vision
  • Seeing halos
  • Muted or dull colours
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Trouble seeing and reading at night

These symptoms may not always be caused by cataracts, but it’s important to see us for a check-up to get to the bottom of your symptoms. 

What Causes Cataracts?

Cataracts develop when the proteins in your eye build up in the lens. There are different types of cataracts, which occur for different reasons:

  • Age-related cataracts arise naturally due to age.
  • Congenital cataracts occur in babies and develop in the womb or early childhood.
  • Secondary cataracts occur as a result of other medical conditions, like diabetes. Or they can result from UV light, radiation, or other toxic substances.
  • Traumatic cataracts result from injuries to the eye.

Can Cataracts be Prevented?

There is no known way to prevent age-related cataracts, but you can help reduce your chance of developing cataracts by adopting healthy habits.

You can wear sunglasses and proper eye protection while at work or participating in risky activities, like certain sports. You can also eat a nutritious diet high in antioxidants, including berries, nuts, and dark green vegetables.

Ultimately, it’s important to undergo regular eye exams to monitor for conditions like cataracts, as well as glaucoma and other health problems, like diabetes.
