Save your sight with a simple eye examination every year or two.

A Cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of your eye, which affects the clarity of your vision. You are more prone to Cataract if you’re over 45, have diabetes, use steroids, smoke or have had previous eye surgery or injuries. Click here to learn more

Warning signs of Cataract are a gradual loss of vision, blurriness, spots before the eyes and double vision.

The best way to treat a Cataract is with a simple surgical procedure that removes the old clouded lens and replaces it with a clear artificial lens.

Preventative measures include wearing sunglasses from an early age, modifying personal behaviours (for example, ceasing smoking) and having regular eye examinations to detect signs of Cataract early.
