Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. While I am unable to find a chart that shows the appearance of the lens in various different stages of cataract formation, I have found a very well done cataract surgery slideshow that shows what the cataract is and then how it affects the vision. It is very well done and clearly demonstrates the symptoms and their affect on vision. It is located here: http://www.medicinenet.com/cataracts_pictures_slideshow/article.htm
I will keep searching for a chart as you've discussed, but I've not seen one to date. If this is acceptable to you and you don't have any other questions I can help you with...

My opinion is solely informative and does not constitute a formal medical opinion or recommendation. For a formal medical opinion and/or recommendation you must see an eye doctor. Thanks for your inquiry!
Hi sir... that was very informative.....thank you...But i am looking for the stages.....Here is a link that shows images of some key words i searched for.. perhaps you can skim throug the images to see which would offer me more of what i am looking for? My moms eyes don't look anything like clouding in the center... They appear to have a whitish line around the outside edges of the brown part of the eye..not the center..
Well, my MOms eyes do not look like the eyes that have cataracts that appeared on the google images of eyes that have cataracts so i am a bit confused.
....her pupils are not cloudy at all......
In other words, would getting straight glasses for seperate visions make her see better right away and if that solves the problem than it shows that her cataracts are indeed minimal and not advanced?
