Yes: Most good optometrists and ophthalmologist are well able to identify cataracts. I am not sure what is causing your visual changes but I would assume that a qualified I've professional would easily be able to identify if a cataract was the cost. I wish you the best of luck

Yes: An ophthalmologist conducting an appropriate eye exam can see cataracts. It's unlikely for someone at your young age to have cataracts. Consider further evaluation

Cataract exam: Yes, an EyeMD can see if you have cataracts by using a microscope. MD will also check to see if your tear film, macula, & optic nerve look normal to see cause of vision change. More info:eyedoc2020 blogspot com and http://www.visionaryeyedoctors.com/
