Cataracts are not usually painful. However, they can cause discomfort by making your eyes more sensitive to light. Cataracts are a standard part of the eye’s aging process.
Eventually, they can cause:

  • Vision that’s cloudy, blurry, foggy, or filmy.
  • Sensitivity to bright sunlight, lamps, or headlights.
  • Glare, especially when you drive at night with oncoming headlights.
  • Prescription changes in glasses, including sudden nearsightedness.
  • Double vision.
  • Need for brighter light to read.
  • Difficulty seeing at night (poor night vision).
  • Changes in the way you see color.
