Take the Cataract Self Test

Cataract Surgery

In the early stages of cataract development, the cataract may not interfere with your daily life. In this case, an adjustment in your glasses prescription and increased lighting may suffice to aid in activities such as reading. If your cataract begins to affect your vision, inhibiting your ability to do things you need or like to do, such as driving, cooking, reading, etc., you may need your cataract removed.

The only way a cataract can be removed is through surgery. There are no medications, dietary supplements, exercises, or optical devices that have been shown to treat cataracts. Cataract surgery is an elective procedure in most instances. This means that the time to remove the cataract is when it interferes with your visual needs. A comprehensive exam by and ophthalmologist is required to decide if surgery is necessary.
