Has your vision become cloudy or foggy over the years? Have you noticed colors don’t appear as bright or vibrant as they used to? Are you experiencing glare or halos around lights? If so, you may have a cataract in one or both of your eyes.
A cataract is a very common condition where the lens in your eye – similar to the lens of a camera lens – clouds up. Cataracts typically occur with age, however, can occur earlier in life if you are on certain medications, have diabetes, or had a significant eye injury.
The best way to prevent the early development of cataracts is to eat well and to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful light.
