I see halos and glares around lights..it would only happen at night and now it happens during the day and even indoors. I also have noticed that when I cover my left eye colors appear faded. I am seeing an ophthalmologist in a couple of weeks. I have noticed that my right eye is slightly misaligned...could this be causing the problems with my vision?
It could be the cause and it sounds like you are having some of the classic symptoms of cataract. Blur, glare and hopefully temporary eye misalignment.Great News! Cataract Surgery is something to look forward to...we can actually make a part of your body function very well.

Saw the ophthalmologist and definitely no cataracts, tests are completely normal. Dr. sees the slight inward turning of my right eye but says it could be normal and I am only noticing it now because of my vision problems. She has no explanation as to why I'm having these vision problems. Last night for example, every oncoming car's headlights shot out like lasers across my entire field of vision. Sort of like strobe lights. It was difficult to focus. Any ideas?
