Cataracts Awareness Month
When to seek medical advice
You should see an optician if you have any of these symptoms:
your eyesight is blurred or misty
you find lights too bright or glaring
you find it harder to see in low light
colours look faded
If you wear glasses, you may feel your lenses are dirty and need cleaning, even when they don't.
Regular eye tests can provide an early indication of new problems and can also identify eye conditions such as Cataracts, Glaucoma as well as possible health issues such as diabetes.
Having an eye examination at least once every two years should be part of everyone’s health care routine. Many causes of sight loss are preventable if they are caught early by visiting an optometrist.
