7 Signs You Might Have Cataracts

7 Signs You Might Have Cataracts

Cataracts are considered one of the leading causes of blindness among older people. Having cataracts is like looking through a fogged-up window all the time. Talk to your optometry provider at Foster Vision in Portland to learn more about this condition and for cataract treatment options. Here are the top signs of cataracts to be aware of.

Blurriness

One of the primary symptoms of cataracts that sends people to our eye doctors is blurry vision. Most patients think that their sight is just getting worse due to age, however, that is not always the case. Schedule an eye exam with our doctors of optometry to determine the actual cause of your blurry vision.

Night Vision Issues 

Cataracts also commonly cause night vision problems. People with cataracts have a difficult time driving at night.

Halos 

Another sign of cataracts is when you see halos around bright lights. Things like street-lamps, headlights, or other bright lights can appear to have halos around them, making it difficult to focus on objects.

Sensitivity 

Cataracts also cause an increased sensitivity to light or glare.

Prescriptions 

You may notice that your eye prescription changes frequently. Your prescription-strength never seem to be strong enough when you have cataracts.

Double Vision  

Double vision in one or both eyes could also indicate that you have a cataract. See our eye care professionals to rule out any underlying medical issues when experiencing double vision.

Fading Colors 

If you notice that colors fade or seem yellow, it could be a sign that you have cataracts.  

Remember that eye trauma puts you at an increased risk for cataracts. Preserve your sight by wearing protective eyewear to reduce the chances of developing cataracts.

  • Dr. Anderson and his staff are so patient and friendly. Dr. Anderson prescribed me glasses and I had the toughest time picking out frames. They didn’t rush, but instead made helpful suggestions and now I have an awesome pair of frames, not to mention the fact that I can see ten times better than before. You guys are the best!
