What are the symptoms of a cataract?

The most common symptoms of a cataract are:

  • Cloudy or blurry vision.
  • Faded colours;
  • Glare: Headlights, lamps, or sunlight may appear too bright. Sometimes, the person may notice a halo around lights.
  • Poor night vision.
  • Double vision or multiple images in one eye. (This symptom may clear as the cataract sizes increases.)
  • Frequent prescription changes to your glasses or contact lenses.

These symptoms also can be a sign of other eye problems. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, check with your ophthalmologist.
