Compltete eye examination


Cataract is the leading cause of treatable blindness in the world. It is the opacification of the natural lens inside the eye. The lens is a clear tissue found behind the iris, the coloured part of the eye. The lens helps to focus light on the back of the eye - the retina - forming an image. The natural lens is mainly made up of protein and water. When the protein component starts to opacify the lens becomes cataractous. It is usually age related but may also be seen in young people and even in new born infants.

Cataract comes with the following symptoms

• Cloudy or blurry vision. • Colours seem faded. • Glare. Headlights, lamps, or sunlight may appear too bright. A halo may appear around lights. • Poor night vision. • Double or multiple vision even if seeing with one eye. • Frequent prescription changes in your eyeglasses or contact lenses.

[These symptoms can also happen with other eye problems.]
