Lantus Cataract Causes and Reviews


A Cataract is a clouding of the lens in your eye. It affects your vision. Cataracts are very common in older people. By age 80, more than half of all Americans either have a Cataract or have had Cataract surgery.

A Cataract can occur in either or both eyes. It cannot spread from one eye to the other. Common symptoms are

  • Blurry vision
  • Colors that seem faded
  • Glare - headlights, lamps or sunlight may seem too bright. You may also see a halo around lights.
  • Not being able to see well at night
  • Double vision
  • Frequent prescription changes in your eye wear

Cataracts usually develop slowly. New glasses, brighter lighting, anti-glare sunglasses or magnifying lenses can help at first. Surgery is also an option. It involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial lens. Wearing sunglasses and a hat with a brim to block ultraviolet sunlight may help to delay Cataracts.

Lantus Cataract Reviews

Tue, 09 Feb 2010

Lantus is nt working for me atall, sometimes it will be extremely potent leading to a horrible kind of feeling of blood sugar levels being pushed down. other times it will work the other way and be useless and ineffective. I'm currently trying to get on an insulin pump. I have found out that Lantus is a different ph to the rest of the boy which is clearly going to have some side effects! that is unbelivably obvious! yet why is it still being pushed onto patients. I'm not saying levemir is any better, the best alternative sounds to me like the way insulin pumps send small pulses of rapid acting insulin into the blood every 5 minuets, mimicking the way a normal pancreas would work and making it easier to adjust when things go wrng as opposed to being "stuck" with a certain amount of insulin in your body the moment you inject it.
