A cataract is clouding of the lens in one or both eyes. As the natural lens ages, it goes from crystal clear and flexible to hard and less transparent. Cataracts are part of the normal aging process and one of the most common causes of vision loss as we age.
With cataracts, vision becomes blurry and images are not as bright or colourful as they used to be, the eyes can become more sensitive to glare from the sun or oncoming headlights. Daily activities such as reading, driving and computer work are difficult without the aid of glasses.
Cataract surgery is a simple, painless procedure to regain vision and is the only effective treatment currently available. There are no medications or eye drops that can halt or reverse this process. In cataract surgery, the clouding lens is replaced with a clear artificial implant.
