4 Signs You Could Benefit From Cataract Surgery

Cataract development is a slow and progressive process, but eventually, this eye condition may cause symptoms such as double or blurred vision, light sensitivity, or muted colours. Here are four signs that you could benefit from cataract surgery.

Cataracts are a degenerative eye condition that is typically associated with advanced age, but people of all ages can develop cataracts. That’s why it’s so important to visit your Calgary eye doctor regularly, because they can determine if you do have cataracts, how much your vision is affected, and whether or not you require cataract surgery. 

Some of the benefits of cataract surgery include: 

  • Enhanced quality of life
  • Quick treatment time
  • Little downtime (you can resume your normal activities within a few days)
  • Increased independence and reduced risk of falls

4 Signs You Could Benefit From Cataract Surgery  

Cataracts develop gradually and over time they can impact your ability to perform day-to-day activities. When they start to affect your independence or quality of life, you should talk to your optometrist about scheduling cataract surgery. 

Here are four signs that you could benefit from cataract surgery:

1. Your Vision Suddenly Worsens

Many people can manage the symptoms of their cataracts on their own for a while. Often, using better lighting in your house or getting a stronger prescription can help. However, you may reach a point where your vision is blurry or sensitive to glare, and typical eyecare solutions don’t help. In this case, you might want to consider cataract surgery. 

2. Your Daily Life Is Significantly Impacted 

For many of our patients, the hardest part about having cataracts is the loss of independence. Often, cataract patients find that they have trouble doing daily activities, such as driving, watching TV, reading a book, or gardening. In addition, cataract symptoms can progress to the point where it affects your personal safety. In such a case, you should strongly consider cataract surgery. 



3. You Have Cloudy or Blurry Vision 

Do you find yourself constantly cleaning your eyeglasses, or rubbing your eyes in an effort to clear up your vision? This is a strong sign that your cataracts are progressing and it may be time to talk to your optometrist about cataract surgery. 

In addition, cataracts can lead you to have double vision. If this is preventing you from leading a comfortable life, or performing daily duties, then you should consider surgery.

4. Your Vision Has a Yellowish Tint

As your eye lens grows duller, your cataracts can darken, causing a yellow or brownish tint to develop. This darkening can make it hard to distinguish colours, perceive fine details, or even read. If you are affected by this, then cataract surgery may be the right next step.
