Do I Have Cataracts?
Cataracts are a progressive condition that typically develops along with one or more types of vision impairment. When left untreated, cataracts can worsen, significantly impede vision, and negatively affect quality-of-life. Recognizing the early symptoms of cataracts can help lead to a prompt diagnosis and effective treatment.
You may have cataracts if you are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms:
- Progressive loss of vision
- Increasingly poor night vision
- Blurry or cloudy vision
- Glares or haloes
- Double vision
- Faded or yellow-tinted colors
- Visible white or cloudy areas over the pupil
