The clear lens of the eye (behind the iris) focuses light to provide sharp images. If this becomes cloudy and hardens causing a loss of sight, this is called a Cataract.
Cataracts are painless and gradually develop over a long period of time.
Over 50% of people aged over 65 have some form of cataract development and most cases can be treated successfully with surgery where the lens is replaced by a clear plastic one.
It can be caused by age, trauma, diabetes, long term steroid therapy and excessive exposure to UV light or can be hereditary.
