Cataracts occur when the lens of your eye develops cloudy patches. This can cause blurry, misty vision and in some extreme cases, can lead to blindness.
Cataracts are usually more common in older adults but have been known to affect children and in some cases, babies.
You might have cataracts if you’re suffering from any of the following symptoms:
- Blurred or Misty Eyesight
- Lights are dazzling/glaring
- Struggle to see in dim light
- Colours seem faded
Although it is unclear as to what exactly causes age related cataracts, studies have shown certain things increase the risk. These include:
- Family history
- Eye Injury
- Long-term use of steroids
- Excessive alcohol drinking
