    Yes, double vision is a symptom of cataracts. Cataract appears to be a kind of eye disease which has something unclear in the eye lens inside. In a word, any lens opacity can be called a Cataract. When the lens opacity is lighter, it will not significantly affect vision. If it is unnoticed or ignored and not included in the Cataract procession according to the survey, Cataract will cause blindness and visual disability in human, about 25% patients with Cataract. When you have the cataracts, I think the surgery could be the safe and effective way. You’d better find the good hospital to help you cure it. Your double vision may be caused by the side effect of dryness and redness from the cataracts. You need to use some eye drops to moisture it and get the clear vision. At the same time, the warm compress could also be the good way for you to get the clear vision. You need to have the good rest for the eyes.

    Well, yes, double vision can be a symptom of cataracts in your eyes. First, you should know what the cataracts are. Generally speaking, cataracts occur when there is a buildup of protein in the lens that makes it cloudy. According to some experts, it will just prevent light from passing clearly through the lens. And in some cases, it will just cause some loss of vision. For the symptoms, it will lead to some other eye problems, such as double vision, blurry vision, and watery eyes. So we can say that is very serious eye disease. For some people, they can take cataract surgery to cure it. Of course, if your situation is not severe, you can try some lutein to heal it. So just be careful about it.
