What are Cataracts?
Cataracts refer to the cloudiness that can occur on the lens of the eye. Cataracts are most commonly found in older adults. This is the leading cause of loss of vision among people over forty years old. Cataracts are characterized by a progressive impact on your vision. It may begin as a blurring, intensity of light and sun, and dullness in colors. It may appear as though you are looking through a piece of cloudy glass. Symptoms will continue to worsen if left untreated.
There are three types of cataracts that people can develop.
- Subcapsular Cataracts | These occur at the back of the lens in the eye. If you take high doses of steroid medication or have diabetes, you are at higher risk for developing this type of cataracts.
- Nuclear Cataracts | These occur in the central zone of the lens in the eye. This is the type of cataract most commonly associated with aging.
- Cortical Cataracts | These begin with opacities at the edges of your vision and move inward. The opacities usually appear as wedges in your peripheral vision with spokes moving inward toward the center.
