Symptoms & Diagnosis

As a cataract begins to develop, you may not notice any changes in your vision at first. People often notice glare as one of the first symptoms.  Other common symptoms of cataracts:

  • Vision becomes cloudy, colors are dull
  • Glare while driving at night or in the bright sun
  • Halos or lines of light around a point source such as headlights
  • Increased light sensitivity
  • You may need brighter lights to read, see faces or enjoy your hobbies

Cataracts are diagnosed during your dilated eye exam. Your OCB eye doctor will see clouding of your lens on physical examination.  Testing will include checking visual acuity, refraction and sensitivity to glare. With glare testing, you will look at an eye chart and lights are introduced that simulate nighttime glare or sunlight.
