What is the First Sign of Cataracts? Causes and Symptoms of Cataracts

As people get older, cataracts, a prevalent eye ailment, impact more and more people. They develop when the eye's lens begins to fog, making it difficult to see clearly. Too much UV exposure and smoking accelerates the growth of cataracts. Certain systemic conditions like diabetes or long term steroid use can also cause cataract development

Blurred vision, trouble seeing at night, sensitivity to light, and the perception of a halo surrounding lights are typical symptoms.

Visit an eye care professional as soon as you can for an eye examination if you experience any of these signs. Early detection and treatment can help you see better and maintain the health of your eyes.
