Once your ophthalmologist analyzes your symptoms and clinical history, he or she will perform a comprehensive eye exam where your visual acuity will be measured and will observe in detail the morphology of your eyes (including the retina and the lens) with a special microscope called a slit lamp.
The treatment indicated for cataracts that do not seriously affect vision is the use of prescription glasses, but if your case is serious and the cataracts do not allow you to see properly, hindering your daily activities, the only alternative is surgery.
There are several types of surgery depending on your specific case, the degree of progress, and the type of cataract. Your ophthalmologist will tell you which one is the most suitable for you.
