Frequently Asked Questions About Cataracts

Chesapeake Eye Center has compiled valuable information about cataracts that can be beneficial for individuals seeking knowledge on the topic. Our resources can provide insights about cataracts, their causes, symptoms, and treatment options.

What is Cataract?

Cataract is characterized by a progressive loss of clarity in the eye’s natural lens. The lens of the eye plays a vital role in focusing light onto the retina, which then sends signals to the brain for visual interpretation. However, when a cataract develops, it interferes with the passage of light, resulting in a decline in visual clarity.

Cataracts can cause various changes in a person’s eyesight, including blurred or cloudy vision, difficulty seeing in dim lighting, increased sensitivity to glare, and a loss of color vibrancy. These changes occur due to the clouding of the lens,

The precise cause of cataract development is still unknown, but it is understood that chemical changes in the lens contribute to the progression of this condition. Another major contributor to cataract formation is the natural aging process.

Additionally, frequent exposure to UV rays, eye inflammation, genetic factors, certain medications, and other ocular disorders can also lead to the formation of cataracts.

Cataracts generally do not cause pain, redness, or tearing. Instead, they manifest as changes in vision, such as blurred vision, double vision, ghost images, or the sensation of a “film” over the eyes. Light-related issues (such as difficulty with dim lights or sensitivity to intense lighting) and frequent changes in eyeglass prescriptions are also common symptoms.

Regardless if they cause discomfort or not, it is best to seek the advice of an eye care professional once any of these symptoms begin to manifest. This way, they can provide early medical intervention and prevent the progression of cataract formation.

No, they are not contagious like bacterial or viral conjunctivitis. Cataracts are not caused by an infection or tissue growth over the eyes. Rather, it is a condition that may develop rapidly over a few months or gradually over several years.

Surgical removal is currently the only proven treatment for cataracts. It is a delicate operation, but rest assured, it is one of the safest procedures performed today, with a remarkable success rate of 95%.
