Cataracts occurs when the natural lens in our eyes become cloudy and opaque. They can vary from extremely small areas of cloudiness to large opaque areas that cause a noticeable blurring of vision. Some indications that a cataract may be forming include blurred or hazy vision that cannot be corrected by changing the glasses prescription, or the feeling of having a film over the eyes that does not go away with blinking. A temporary change in distance and/or near vision may also occur. An increased sensitivity to glare, especially at night may be experienced. Cataracts develop without pain or redness.
A comprehensive eye examination by a doctor of optometry can determine if you have a cataract forming.
