How Does a Cataract Affect Your Vision?

Patients are living longer, happier, and healthier lives now than ever before. Unfortunately, with that longevity comes diminished eyesight. Men and women over the age of 40 begin to develop vision-impairing cataracts. So, how does a cataract actually affect your vision? They do so in their formation.

What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts are clumps of protein that have congregated together within the eye, creating a clouded effect. Usually, your eye is made up of proteins, each within their specific area. However, as you age, those proteins gravitate towards one another and form a cloud. These are cataracts. They impair your vision by forming a blurry clump in front of your eyes.

If you’re experiencing cloudy vision, you may have a cataract. Visit Your Eye Specialists for symptoms, diagnosis, and eventual treatment. 954-452-9922

How does cataract affect your vision?
I'm 86 years old, and next year I'm going for my driver's license. I wanted my eyes checked so I could pass the test because they were getting a little bit blurry. I came to Aventura Eye Specialists, and they fixed my eyes so that I don't have to wear glasses. I see perfectly!

Dr. Vedula best lasik surgery

How does cataract affect your vision?
I came to Dr. Vedula for lasik surgery. I've seen multiple doctors in the area, and I found him to be the best. I had an astigmatism and he assured me that I was able to have it done. He's changed my life forever. I now have 20/20 vision. I wake up in the morning without glasses, and I can go out dancing and to the beach. I highly recommend Dr.
