• Are cataracts worsening my dizziness from Meniere’s disease?


    Question:

    I have Meniere’s disease (an ear condition that can cause vertigo/dizziness) and am getting cataracts. My dizziness is much worse even though I am taking medication for it. Could this be caused by the cataracts?


    Answer:

    It is very unusual for any eye problem to aggravate dizziness. I suppose if one had extremely severe cataracts it may increase a sense of disorientation that may make dizziness feel worse. However, I don’t think that cataract surgery will relieve your symptoms from Meniere’s disease.
