Cataract

A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. It can be compared to a window that is frosted or "fogged" with steam. Common symptoms of cataract include:

  • Painless blurring of vision
  • Glare, or light sensitivity 
  • Frequent eyeglass prescription changes 
  • Double vision in one eye 
  • Needing brighter light to read 
  • Poor night vision 
  • Fading or yellowing of colours

The amount and pattern of cloudiness within the lens can vary. If the cloudiness is not near the centre of the lens, you may not be aware that a cataract is present.
