Are you in your mid 40’s or older and struggling with blurry vision, glare, faded colors, double vision, or needing to have your prescription changed frequently? You may have cataracts! Cataracts can occur in just one eye or both eyes. The scary part of cataracts is that they are quite common in middle age and older people. By age 80 more than half of Americans either have cataracts or have had cataract surgery! If you are getting any of these symptoms make sure to see an eye care professional immediately. If you have been diagnosed with cataracts you can slow down the progression by wearing sunglasses to block ultraviolet sunlight. Schedule an appointment at Auburn Optical today if you are struggling with these symptoms to get checked for cataracts.
