What To Do When You’re Recently Diagnosed with Cataract

Here at our Ohio cataract center, we get a lot of questions about the do’s and don’ts following diagnosis of cataract. Below is a quick guide to lifestyle changes that you may have to do once you have cataract.

  • Stick to your eye exam schedules. If you’re over 65 years old, you may have to do the exam once a year and every 2 years for those who are below 65.
  • Quit smoking if you do. Tobacco smoke is known to exacerbate symptoms of cataract.
  • Limit driving during the evenings if you start to experience problems with night vision, glare, and night vision.
  • Put your diabetes or irregular blood sugar levels under control.
  • Use sunglasses with maximum UV light protection.
  • Get the right contact lenses or eyeglasses to correct your vision. You might want to consider cataract surgery if you are having problems doing your regular activities.
