Tips for Improving Vision When You Have Cataracts
Some of these tips might help you adapt to mild vision problems caused by cataracts.
- Reposition room lights and use window shades to avoid glare (on TV screens, computer screens).
- Use table or floor lamps for close reading and other fine work, moving them closer to work or reading areas.
- Use more lighting or higher-watt bulbs for steps and hallways.
- Keep your eyeglass lens prescription current. Replace your prescription before considering cataract surgery.
