What are the Symptoms of Posterior Capsular Opacification?

  • Blurring of vision: this usually develops slowly, typically several years or longer after the original cataract surgery, although can occasionally happen as soon as a few weeks or months after cataract surgery. The blurring from capsular opacity is not correctible with glasses and gradually worsens. Posterior capsular opacification does not usually cause dizziness, although the reduction in vision can cause people to be unsteady and at risk of falls.
  • Glare or other visual sensations: you might notice that the vision is impaired in certain conditions such as bright sunlight, low light or street lights in the evening.
  • Double vision out of one eye: if you shut one eye and the other eye sees double or there is a second blurred edge around objects, you may have PCO.
