Here’s what you would experience if you have a cataract. 

You may have a cataract if you have any of the following

  • Your vision starts to blur, this starts slowly and generally progresses gradually. This could be for distance and/or near and often appears like a cloud in front of the eyes which doesn’t change throughout the day.

  • There is often an overall reduction in the brightness in the evening time.

  • You may find bright headlights very disturbing because of light distortion and glare caused by the cataract.

  • Your vision may not improve despite wearing the correct glasses.

  • You may find that your near vision actually gets clear without glasses.

  • If your cataract is advanced you may find a whitish opacity in your pupillary area.
