What symptoms do people experience when a cataract develops?

As cataracts develop, several visual symptoms may occur. Many of these symptoms are not noticed with early cataracts because they are mild and the visual changes occur gradually. Common cataract symptoms include:

  • Blurry vision at distance and up close
  • Halos or starbursts around lights, mainly noticed at night
  • Glare from oncoming headlights or bright sunlight is extremely bothersome
  • Low light situations make seeing more difficult, such as a dim restaurant
  • Small print is difficult to read
  • Frequent changes are required in your glasses prescription
