Previous Next 2 of 8 Vision with cataracts

If you have cataracts, you might notice:

  • Cloudy, blurred or dim vision
  • Increased difficulty with vision at night
  • Light halos around objects
  • Fading or yellowing of colors
  • Double vision in a single eye

If you notice any signs and symptoms of cataracts, talk to your eye doctor. Although the early symptoms of cataracts can often be managed with eyeglasses, the only effective treatment for cataracts is surgery.
