Cloudy vision caused by cataracts can be corrected with surgery.
What is a cataract?
A cataract is a clouding of the lens in your eye. It affects your vision. Cataracts are very common in older people. By age 80, more than half of all Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. A cataract can occur in either or both eyes. It cannot spread from one eye to the other. Common symptoms are:
- Blurry vision
- Colors that seem faded
- Glare – headlights, lamps or sunlight may seem too bright
- Halo around lights
- Not being able to see well at night
- Double vision
- Frequent prescription changes in your eyewear
