Signs & Symptoms

Cataracts don’t suddenly develop overnight. They generally start off small and only begin to noticeably affect your vision as they grow. The first symptom is usually that your vision becomes blurred, hazy or cloudy. Additionally, you may become sensitive to light, making sunlight, oncoming headlights or indoor lighting appear exceptionally glaring or bright. Colors may seem dim and you may notice halos around lights or double vision.

The symptoms people experience from cataracts may vary. Some individuals even report a temporary improvement in near vision when a cataract first develops, a phenomenon known as “second sight”.

Here is a list of possible signs and symptoms of developing cataracts:

  • Blurry or cloudy vision (that can’t be corrected with a change in eyeglass prescription)
  • Glare from lamps, sunlight, oncoming traffic when driving at night or indoor lighting
  • Colors appear dim and less vibrant
  • Halos around lights
  • Double vision
  • Poor night vision
  • Sudden improvement in near vision

If you experience any change in your vision, visit your eye doctor immediately.

We have taken extensive measures to keep our team and patients safe. We have implemented a locked door policy, temperature and oxygen check upon arrival, increased sanitization measures, and porch pick-up service.

We ask that if you or someone you live with has been ill in the last 14 days, traveled outside of Canada in the last 14 days or have been diagnosed or exposed to Covid 19 in the last 30 days or if you or anyone in your household is waiting for the results of a Covid 19 test that you refrain from entering our practice or booking an appointment at this time.

Thank you for understanding.
