Complicated: They all can cause decreased vision. If the glaucoma is "early" your doctor can stop its effect. The cataract can easily be corrected with surgery. The epiretinal membrane, if it gets worse, can also be fixed with surgery. Both the cataract and erm can cause glare symptoms, but more likely the cataract.
