Symptom #2: Light Sensitivity

If you never had issues with bright light such as lamps, sunlight, or car headlights bothering you before but now your eyes are much more sensitive to lights and always seems too bright, it may be one of the first signs that you have cataracts. Many patients with light sensitivity report that any activities with bright lights such as driving at night and watching movies in the theatres become extremely uncomfortable.

If you are having this issue, it may help you if you wear sunglasses or a wide brim hat to decrease the amount of light entering your eyes. You can also avoid activities that cause discomfort. If you suspect that you have a cataract, you can see a trained optometrist or ophthalmologist who will be able to examine your eyes in detail after dilation.
