About

A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s natural crystalline lens.
As this naturally clear lens becomes cloudy, light cannot focus clearly at the back of the eye called the retina.
As a result the images you see become blurred or out of focus.
This blurring may occur gradually or occasionally rapidly.
Most commonly cataracts affect adults over the age of 60.It is part of the natural ageing process.

Symptoms

Some of the symptoms cataracts cause are:

Blurred or dim vision
Worsening Night Vision
Increased sensitivity to bright light and glare
Haloes around lights at night
The need for brighter light to comfortably read
A change in glasses prescription that doesn’t really help
Constantly cleaning your glasses to clear your vision

Causes

The most common cause of cataracts is due to the natural ageing of the eye.
Other causes include

A family history of cataracts
Medical issues such as Diabetes
Medications such as steroids
Chronic exposure to unprotected sunlight
Previous injury to your eye
