Visual effects of Cataracts
July 19, 2012
As a cataract develops, sight is affected and you may experience some of the following:
- Visual acuity reduces and text begins to blur.
- Colours start to fade and you may not be able to see light green and blue.
- Halos appear around lights.
- You are troubled by glare and have trouble seeing into a low sun.
- Double vision may occur.
- A yellowish/brown tint may be seen on light colours, especially white.
