What Are the Symptoms of Cataracts?Not all cataracts impair vision or affect daily living. When they do, common symptoms include:
Who Do Cataracts Affect?Aging and exposure to ultraviolet radiation can cause cataracts. People may also experience cataracts after an eye injury, as a result of eye disease, after the use of certain medications, or as a result of medical conditions such as diabetes.
Genetics may be another risk factor for developing cataracts. People with a family history are more likely to develop them. The color of your eye may also contribute to the development of cataracts. People with darker-colored irises appear to have an increased risk of developing them.
How to Avoid Cataracts
How Are Cataracts Treated?If vision problems caused by cataracts are interfering with a person's quality of life, surgery is the only treatment option. Cataract surgery is very common and currently has the highest success rate of any surgical procedure in the United States. During the procedure, the clouded natural lens of the eye is replaced with a new, clear lens (intraocular lens) that has a prescription power specifically measured for the individual patient.

Intraocular Lens ChoicesSome lenses best correct at distance, some at near, some at both distance and near, and some for astigmatism. For these reasons, no one lens is right for every patient.
