What are cataracts?

Cataracts are a common condition in which the lens of the eye becomes cloudy or opaque, causing blurry vision and glare from stray light, which can be extremely debilitating, especially when you’re driving in heavy rain, at night or towards a rising sun. More than 45% of adults over 50 will develop a cataract.

Cataracts may cause symptoms such as:

Blurry or foggy vision

Reversible loss of vision at advanced stages

Bleak colours or loss of contrast

Having cataracts can dramatically decrease your quality of life. If you’re not able to do some of the things you love because your sight is holding you back, you’ll know how frustrating it can be.

You might have experienced:

    Difficulty driving in low light or poor weather conditions

    Difficulty reading, even with reading glasses

    Worry or anxiety about falling or tripping

    Difficulties in performing your job safely where precision vision is essential (.e.g  driving, police

    or armed forces)

    The good news is high-quality treatment is available quickly
