As you age, you become more susceptible to certain eye conditions, including cataracts. Nearly half of all individuals over 60 get diagnosed with this condition. Cataracts make the eye lens cloudy, which impairs your ability to see clearly. At Dr. Dorothy Park & Associates in Columbia, SC, our optometry team diagnoses and treats patients with cataracts.

Early Signs of Cataracts

  • Your vision will appear cloudy or blurry, which is one of the most recognizable signs of cataracts. This symptom might not be noticed right away, because cataracts take time to develop.
  • You may have a more difficult time driving at night. Cataracts can be responsible for distorting light coming into the eye, and you may notice what looks like increased glare with other headlights.
  • Colors might not seem as vibrant as they once were.
  • There is often increased light sensitivity, which includes all forms of natural or artificial light sources.
  • The appearance of halos around lights, which can be more prevalent as night sets in.
  • Cataracts are one of the common causes of double vision.
  • If you've had a more frequent need for a stronger eyeglass prescription, cataracts may be the reason why.
  • How We Treat Cataracts

Treatment for this condition will rely mostly on the severity of cataracts. Sometimes, you may only need a new pair of eyeglasses or contact lenses for vision correction. However, once cataracts grow large enough and impede daily functioning, cataract surgery may be your best option. Our eye doctor will determine if you need cataract surgery. If you do, we will provide your post-surgery care.
