Cataract
A cataract is a clouding of all or part of the normally clear lens within your eye, which results in blurred or distorted vision. Cataracts are most often found in people over age 55.

Although cataracts develop without pain or discomfort, indications of cataract development may include blurred or hazy vision, the appearance of spots in front of the eyes, increased sensitivity to glare or the feeling of having a film over the eyes.

During an eye examination Visique Botany Optometrists will diagnose any cataract development. Currently there is no proven method to prevent cataracts forming, however, Visique Botany Optometrists can monitor its development and prescribe spectacles or contact lenses to maintain good vision.

If the cataract develops to the point that it affects your daily activities Visique Botany Optometrists can refer you to an eye surgeon who may recommend surgery to remove the natural lens and replace this with a new plastic lens.
