Cataracts are common among aging populations. In their early stages of development, cataracts don’t interfere with vision. However, as cataracts continue to develop, they cause visual disturbances. Here are some ways to tell if you have cataracts:
Many people who have cataracts have trouble seeing at nighttime. One of the reasons for the impairment of their night vision is due to light sensitivity, as well as the glares associated with headlights and other types of light. Individuals may also see “halos” around lights.
Another early indication of cataracts is a loss of vividness in terms of seeing various colors. Colors appear less sharp and tend to have a yellowish tint to them. Because these changes are subtle, they can go unnoticed for an extended period of time.
Double vision and cloudy vision are also early indicators of cataracts. Double or blurry vision should never be ignored.
It is important to note that not all cataracts are the same, and symptoms may vary from person to person. In the case of congenital cataracts, people are born with them, or they develop them when they are children. The development of these types of cataracts could be hereditary or the result of an intrauterine infection or trauma.
