Can only old people get cataracts? I'm 25 years old, and sometimes i can't see well because my vision is cloudy or i see double. Could I have cataracts?
Anyone can get them: Cataracts are a clouding of the crystalline lens in your eye. The most common reason for cataracts to form is age, however, people can be born with them, get them from trauma, or due to medications such as steroids. Cloudy or double vision can be due to cataract, but if it is intermittent, it is more likely due to dry eye, astigmatism, or another cause. Best way to know is a dilated eye exam. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Usually: If the eye behind the cataract is normal, and the surgery goes without complications (the usual case) then you will see well within days.

I am diabetic operated for cataract one year ago now i see some black clouds in vision. What should I do?
Get evaluated: Cataract surgery involves the optics of the eye. The retina is the part of the eye attacked in uncontrolled diabetes, with vascular dilation, edema and bleeding. If you see black clouds you might have hemorrhage, or even a detachment of the retina. You should see your ophthalmologist right away (not an optometrist). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Block light: The eye works like a camera. Glasses function like focusing the camera lens to give the sharpest image. However, a cataract (a clouding of the natural lens in your eye) is more like having dirt on the lens of the camera. This dirt will block the light and decrease the image quality even if the lens is in perfect focus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on anestheia: If eye drop anestheia (topical) is used without an injection, you will see lights but not specific details of the surgery. If an injected block of anesthetic is used (retrobulbar, peribulbar block), you might not see anything at all because the optic nerve itself might be affected by the anesthetic. I use topical and people are not bothered by what they see. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
