Identifying the symptoms of cataracts can help you alter your lifestyle and lower the risks of worsening of the eye disease. Diagnosis of symptoms at early stages can be more helpful in treating the eye condition
Below are the common symptoms of cataracts:
1) Vision blurriness:-
Cataracts may have a little effect on your vision during early stages. As the eye disease gradually progresses, you may start to experience blurriness in vision. The symptom can worsen over time, causing your vision to become cloudy. Consult with the best eye hospital in West Bengal for treating the Cataracts.
2) Visible bulges, bumps in or around the pupil, cornea:-
As cataracts progress, they become visible in and around the pupil and cornea. In most cases, cataracts appear milky white and can cover the entire pupil and cornea area.
3) Dim vision:-
Cataracts can restrict the amount of light that enters the eye as they worsen. This can, in turn, result in the dimming of vision which leads to a poor quality of life.
4) Seeing small spots, dots:-
As cataracts progress, you may notice small spots or dots in your peripheral vision. These small spots can be similar to floaters. Not only can they impair vision but also cause annoyance.
5) Seeing halos around light sources:-
The clouding of the lens involved in the progression of cataracts can result in diffraction of light entering the eyes. As a result, you may see halos around light sources. This symptom can make it challenging for you to drive, especially during nighttime.
6) Sensitivity to light:-
Light sensitivity is commonly experienced by almost all people who suffer from cataract. People who have posterior subcapsular cataracts may experience pain due to the glare of bright lights.
7) Poor night vision:-
One of the serious implications of worsening of cataracts is low night vision. As cataracts advance, they darken with a brown or yellow tinge which lower night vision and make certain nighttime activities such as walking and driving more difficult.
8) Double vision:-
Diffraction of light from the lens can lead to double vision; i.e. seeing two or more images of a single object. This can cause difficulty in doing precision work such as reading, writing, driving, etc.
9) Yellowing of vision:-
The clumps of protein that cloud the lens can turn darker into yellowish or brownish as cataracts worsen. As a result, the light entering the eyes can have a yellow tint and it can make it difficult for you to tell the difference between colours.
10) Frequent changes in eyeglass and contact lens prescription:-
As cataracts can alter the positioning of the lens or the way light enters through, it is likely that your visual acuity will get affected. In other words, you may have to frequently change your eyeglass or contact lens prescription to correct bad vision.
