Cataracts Symptoms in Highland, New York | Seeta Eye Care CenterA cataract is when the lens of the eye becomes cloudy, causing vision impairment. Cataracts are a common development for people in their fifties and sixties, and they can have a large impact on the ability to perform many daily tasks. Our Highland cataract eye surgery specialists can assess your cataracts and provide excellent treatment with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) so you don’t have to give up on reading, hobbies, or driving.


Cataracts develop slowly over time, so the symptoms may change and progress. You may not even notice the cataract in the early stages. General symptoms of cataracts include:

  • Blurry or cloudy vision
  • Vision that is dim
  • Reduced night vision
  • Sensitivity to light and glare
  • The appearance of "halos" or around sources of light
  • Frequent prescription changes for eyeglasses or contact lenses
  • Colors seem to fade or yellow
  • Double vision in a one eye

If you notice any of these changes, don’t wait to contact our experienced Highland ophthalmologist. There are many options for cataract eye surgery that can eliminate the cataract and provide greatly improved vision.
