While an ideal situation would involve our vision remaining 20/20 for the entirety of our lives, the harsh reality is that it usually deteriorates with age. The majority of the world’s population will, at some point or other, experience a decline in vision enough to require the use of glasses or contact lenses. Thankfully, corrective lenses are no longer viewed as undesirable. Modern society has normalized these vision aids to the point that they are now considered fashion accessory must-haves.
Sometimes people experience vision changes that glasses or contact lenses cannot correct. If your vision is becoming increasingly blurry and you are noticing more glare, you may have a cataract. It is important to see your optometrist to determine the cause so you can get the proper treatment.
