Many people do not know that they are losing their eyesight. It happens slowly over time as the cataract grows.

You may have:

  • Cloudy or blurry eyesight
  • Problems seeing contrast
  • Poor eyesight at night
  • Problems reading
  • Seeing two or more images
  • Problems seeing things that are far away
  • Colors that seem faded or images that have a yellow tint
  • Problems with light, such as:
    • Headlights that seem too bright
    • Glare from lamps or sunlight
    • A halo around lights
    • Trying to read in bright light
    • Problems when moving from a dark place to a bright place

These things can also be from other eye problems. If you have any of them, see your eye doctor right away.
