What Causes Cataracts

As we age, our natural lens may become cloudy; this is a cataract.  Over time the clouding can become denser and will impair your vision.

 

We are all at risk for the development of cataracts as we age, but there are certain factors that may increase our risk, they include:

  • Over exposure to sunlight                        
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension                                                
  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Significant alcohol consumption
  • Family history
  • Steroid therapy

You can not diagnose yourself. Contact us today for a cataract evaluation. Once here we can talk about the next step.
