Cataracts are the lenses of your eyes that have become cloudy or foggy. The changes in your lenses (cataracts) usually are slow and gradual, but sometimes can become more obvious within a few weeks. The common and noticeable symptoms are glare and halos with night driving, difficulty seeing small print (like your glasses are dirty) and even problems seeing street signs or where you have hit your golf ball in bright sun. Sometimes new glasses prescriptions can help improve the vision, but it does not remove the fog and haze caused by the cataract. However, when the vision becomes blurred and hazy to the point that you are not able to perform your daily activities, it is time to discuss removing the cataract with your ophthalmologist.
