Instances That Suggests You to Have Cataracts
Having an eyesight problem like cataract can surely be a hassle, as it will not allow you to do more things that require clear vision.

If you are not sure yet whether you already need treatment, here are some of the Instances That Suggests You to Have Cataracts.
Eyesight Changes Too Often
Have you experienced times wherein you need to change your eyeglasses often because the recently prescribed eyeglasses do not fit your current needs? Maybe it is time for you to stop relying on eyeglasses, as it will just cost you a lot of hassle over time. It is best to look for a doctor and have a cataract surgery immediately. Inconsistent eyeglass grade necessity is a symptom of cataract.
Poor Overall Vision
You must understand that having an unclear vision does not immediately suggest you will need to have cataract surgery since some individuals might just need correction glasses. However, if you notice that even with using eyeglasses you still cannot see clearly, especially at night, you must see a doctor immediately. Not all people show the same cataract symptoms, so you must be aware of what is happening with your own eyesight.
The Color You See Fades
You must take note the at times individuals can see color differently from other individuals. Commonly, doctors perform a test to determine this by examining two patients. The doctor will show a image and if you cannot state what the real color is, you may need to be subjected to cataract removal.
Cataracts are notorious in causing multiple images. This may lead to difficulty in perceiving the right image. Seeing double of an object is termed as diplopia. Cataracts cause monocular diplopia – that is when one eye is covered the other still sees two objects
Difficulty driving at night
When driving at night cataracts can cause difficulty causing glare, haloes, and decreased overall vision. If you have difficulty with light at night or see glare and haloes this may be cause for a cataract removal. Glare and Haloes may not be solely due to cataracts so a exam with an ophthalmologist is required to find the correct cause.
Extra light to Read (Forget those Menus)
Cataracts can cut off incoming light into the eye, preventing the light from reaching the back of the eye. Therefore you may notice you require extra light when reading your favorite book in bed or menus in restaurants.
