What are the signs or symptoms when you suffer from cataracts?

My father now is in his late forties and hasn't seen the eye doctor about five years. Now, he feels blurred vision and dulled color vision. Does that mean he suffers cataracts? What are the signs of a cataract?

    Signs and symptoms of cataracts include: Clouded, blurred or dim vision Increasing difficulty with vision at night. Sensitivity to light and glare. Seeing "halos" around lights. Frequent changes in eyeglass or contact lens prescription. Fading or yellowing of colors. Double vision in a single eye. At first, the cloudiness in your vision caused by a cataract may affect only a small part of the eye's lens and you may be unaware of any vision loss. As the cataract grows larger, it clouds more of your lens and distorts the light passing through the lens. This may lead to signs and symptoms you're more likely to notice

    1. As a cataract becomes more opaque, clear vision is compromised. 2. A loss of visual acuity is noted. 3. Contrast sensitivity is also lost, so contours, shadows and color vision are less vivid. Veiling glare can also be a problem, as light is scattered by the cataract into the eye. 3.The affected eye will have an absent red reflex. These are the symptoms in the encyclopaedia. If these are the signs your father eyes present, he is advised to take a contrast sensitivity test, and if a loss is demonstrated, an eye specialist consultation is recommended. It may be advisable to seek medical opinion, particularly in high-risk groups such as diabetics, if a "halo" is observed around street lights at night, especially if this phenomenon appears to be confined to one eye only. The symptoms of cataracts are very similar to the symptoms of ocular citrous.
