Home Helpers National Cataract Awareness Month

Everyone's vision can change with age.

Sunrise, FL (PRWEB) August 06, 2013 - Cataracts currently affect more than 22 million Americans and are the leading cause of vision loss in people age 55 and older. Furthermore, it is estimated that more than half of people age 65 and older have some degree of cataract development.

A cataract forms when the eye’s lens becomes clouded with opaque film, blocking or changing the passage of light into the eye. In light of August being National Cataract Awareness Month, Home Helpers & Direct Link of Broward & Palm Beach is educating the local community on various symptoms of cataracts.

“As people age, they encounter various health problems, so it is necessary that families educate themselves and are prepared,” said Alan Silverberg, owner of Home Helpers & Direct Link of Broward & Palm “Being aware of cataract symptoms and what treatment options are available will provide the entire family with peace of mind.”

Below are some symptoms that families need to pay attention to in their aging loved one that may indicate cataract problems:

  • Cloudy or blurry vision
  • Colors that appear faded
  • Headlights, lamps or sunlight may seem too bright
  • Poor night vision
  • Have double vision in one eye

While these symptoms may also be a result of other eye problems, it is important to consult a physician before the problem worsens and find out if surgery is a necessary option.
