Why should you worry about cataracts?

Are you at risk of cataracts? Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in the United States, which makes it critical to see an eye care provider regularly. Some risk factors of cataracts are:

  • Age, particularly for those over 40. 
  • Eye injury.
  • Medical issue, like diabetes. 
  • Genetics. 
  • Alcohol consumption. 
  • Smoking.
  • Obesity.       
  • High-blood pressure.

It is important to give your optometry provider an accurate medical history when filling out forms and update as needed; this will help your doctor identify if you could be at a greater risk of contracting cataracts.

What are the signs of cataracts?

Keep your eyes healthy and know how to identify cataract symptoms; many patients believe they are experiencing normal signs of aging and delay seeing their eye care provider. Regular appointments and dilation of your eyes during the exam can help identify cataracts. Some other signs that should send you to your optometry professional are:

  • Double vision.
  • Night blindness.
  • Light sensitivity. 
  • Halos around lights. 
  • Eye pain and headache.
