What Is a Cataract?
Cataracts form when the proteins in the lens of your eye break down and clump together. Typically, this process starts around age 40, but cataracts can show up earlier. At first, a cataract may appear as a small cloudy spot on your lens, but over time, it can grow and cloud more of the lens, taking on a yellowish hue and impairing your vision. Common symptoms of cataracts include:
- Blurry vision
- Haloes or starbursts around lights at night
- Dimming daytime vision
- Worsening nighttime vision
- Double vision in one eye
- Increased sensitivity to light
- Frequent changes in eyeglass prescription
