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
