Chan Eye Care, PLLC: Effective Cataract Treatment and Eye Care
There are different causes of vision loss in the world but cataracts are the most common reason for blindness. In fact, there are more cataract cases across the globe than there are cases of diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and glaucoma combined. According to Prevent Blindness America, over 30 million Americans will have cataracts by 2020.
What are Cataracts?
The eyes have natural lenses located behind the pupil and iris. When these lenses cloud, it’s because of cataracts. The condition starts out small, having little effect on vision. Those with cataracts may notice their vision blurring a bit, like as if they were looking outside through cloudy glass.
Symptoms experienced will depend on the type of cataract but the condition may make it appear like sunlight or light from a lamp is too bright. Colors may also appear less bright.
Cataracts develop because eye proteins break down as people age. Some of the proteins can clump together, making the lens cloudy. The cloudy area grows larger over time, making it difficult to see properly.
