More people have cataracts than realize it simply because they do not understand what they are and what the symptoms are.

A person’s vision can become blurry due to clouding that happens within the eye’s lens. In most cases, the process is slow and the blurriness is gradual, but in some situations, the compromised vision comes quickly. As cataracts develop, individuals may experience some of these additional common symptoms:

  • Double vision
  • Drastic changes in their eyeglasses prescription
  • Glares and light sensitivity while reading or driving
  • Seeing fewer details on objects
  • Vibrant colors becoming dull
