There are different types of cataracts the most common are nuclear, posterior subcapsular, and cortical cataracts. The severity of symptoms will depend on which type of cataract you have. In general, symptoms worsen over time regardless of which type it is. Advanced cataracts can include difficulty watching TV or recognising faces and can lead to blindness if left untreated. It is recommended to have your vision checked if you notice any symptoms.
