Please read our important medical disclaimer.

I have the faint beginnings of a cataract in my left eye. The doctor said cataracts take a long time to develop so they advised me to return in a year. Lately I have a lot of trouble removing my contact lens (gas permeable) in that eye. Would this be connected with the cataract getting worse?         

No, and if you are over 50 years of age, "the beginnings of a cataract" might be normal aging changes.
