(HealthDay News) -- A cataract occurs when the eye's lens becomes cloudy.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine says these visual warning signs could indicate cataracts:

  • Seeing double.
  • Having increased sensitivity to glaring light.
  • Seeing a halo that surrounds light.
  • Having vision that appears cloudy, blurry or seeing as if your eye were covered in a film.
  • Having trouble seeing in the dark or without bright light.
  • Not seeing colors sharply.
  • Having difficulty differentiating shapes and colors from a background.
