What is a Cataract?

A cataract is the clouding in the lens of the eye that can develop at any age. Developing cataracts is a natural part of the aging process. However, smoking, diabetes, previous eye infections, injuries or surgeries, exposure to the sun’s ultra violet rays, and certain medications (such as steroids) can increase the risk of developing cataracts. Symptoms of cataracts are mild at first, but can increase in severity as the cataract matures. When the Cataract matures it turns a yellowish color and makes it harder for the person to see. People with cataracts often complain of blurred vision, difficulty reading, glare, halos around lights (especially at night), and recurrent changes in their eye glass prescriptions. Also, cataracts can cause difficulty in seeing colors, because colors that were once bright become dulled when seen through the cloudy lens.
