Appearance – What do cataracts look like?

You may be wondering what cataracts look like and if it’s possible for you and others to see them. Cataracts can appear in different forms and places, depending on the type of cataract you have and how long it’s taken to develop. Cataracts are rarely visible to the human eye and most people can’t see them in the mirror. Usually, only people with advanced/mature cataracts will notice a significant change to their lens, which may become milky white or solid brown. That’s why it’s important to visit your optician if you notice any changes to your vision.
