what are the signs of cataracts
Avatar_dr_f_tn
Hi,
How are you? Cataract or clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye develop due to aging,injury,and even from inherited genetic disorders that cause other health problems and increase the risk of cataracts. Signs and symptoms of cataracts include:clouded, blurred or dim vision; increasing difficulty with vision at night; sensitivity to light and glare; seeing "halos" around lights; frequent changes in eyeglass or contact lens prescription; fading or yellowing of colors; or double vision in a single eye. (ref:http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/cataracts/DS00050/DSECTION=symptoms)
Hope this helps. Take care and do keep us posted.
