But sometimes cataracts suddenly get worse, and you find it’s hard to drive at night. Only a professional can tell you if your cataracts have reached the point where they need to be removed. Is it time to make that appointment? Here are some questions to help you decide.
If you answered “yes” to questions on the list, it’s time to have that evaluation. If you see an optometrist on a regular basis, they check for cataracts as part of a comprehensive exam. However, most people see their eye doctor once a year, and sometimes cataracts can go from a tolerable issue to a serious lifestyle impediment in a matter of months.
While these symptoms generally indicate that cataracts are the problem, don’t assume that’s the case. Some of these signs can be the result of brain injury of other serious or even life-threatening medical conditions. That’s all the more reason for an appointment with our eye doctors. If cataracts are indeed the problem, they’ll talk to you about whether it’s time to schedule cataract surgery.
