i've just had my report through from the hospital that did my eye tests (we were looking for signs of acute glaucoma as i get really odd aura with my migraines). everything was normal.... until they checked for cataracts. i have very mild cataracts in both eyes and i'm only 31.
i havent seen any obvious visual signs of them (i only get halos when i look at super bright, undiffused, strip lighting. none when i look at other lights) so they're very mild but i've been very light sensitive for a long time now so they may have been in my eyes for quite some time. but i shouldnt start to get any cataracts until i'm quite a bit older.......
has any other HMSers had cataracts start to develop early? any tips on how to limit the speed of their progression?
i'm not overly worried as many family members have (or had while they were alive) cataracts and they all progressed very slowly so chances are that mine will progress slowly too, and to be honest, theres nothing i can really do about them at this moment. my vision is still perfect in my left eye and only slightly myopic in my right so there's no vision problems at present but it is slighly concerning when i take into account my age and the fact that the cataracts will progress. i get a bit worried about how bad they'll be when i get older.....
any info or tips would be greatly appreciated!
