Your doctor can find out if you have cataracts by checking your eyes. He or she will ask questions about your symptoms and past health. You may need tests to make sure you have a cataract. Tests can also rule out other conditions that may be causing vision problems.
During routine eye exams, your eye doctor will look for early signs of vision problems, including cataracts.
