What are cataracts?

A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. The lens is a clear part of the eye that helps to focus light onto the retina, a layer of cells at the back of the eye that receives light and converts it into nerve signals that are sent to the brain. When the lens becomes cloudy or opaque, it is called a cataract. Cataracts can occur in one or both eyes and can develop slowly over time.

  1. Cataracts cause colors to appear dull
  2. Increased glare with bright lights especially headlights
  3. Constantly blurred or fogged vision 
  4. Increased difficulty with near vision
