Does your vision seem like it's gradually worsening? Is it harder to see the things around you due to blurry or foggy vision?
These are some of the signs that you may have cataracts. At Azure Eye Center in Fort Worth, our caring and experienced team will help you with cataracts from diagnosis to cataract surgery.
A cataract occurs when proteins on your natural lens start building up and clump together in the middle, impairing your vision. The natural lens is usually transparent and easy to see, but it becomes cloudy when you have cataracts.
Most people develop cataracts as a part of aging, but you can also have cataracts due to a traumatic eye injury, diabetes, high blood pressure, or other reasons. You may not realize you have cataracts at first, as they can take many years to develop fully. However, once they become more advanced, their impact on your vision will become far more apparent and obvious.
There are many signs you could have cataracts. You may experience a few of these or all of them. These signs include:

If it is cataracts, they can help you understand when it is time to have cataract surgery.
