With a clear normal lens,
the images are focused clearly on the retina and vision is
sharp. With a cataract, the lens is cloudy, causing the image
to become blurred and yellowed. Vision is hazy and colors
Over fifty percent of
people over the age of 60 and quite a few younger than that
suffer from cataracts. A cataract is a progressive clouding
of eyes natural lens that interferes with light passing
through the retina. Sufferers usually describe the condition
as being similar to looking through a waterfall, or a piece
of wax paper, with a gradual blurring or dimming of vision.
Reading may become more difficult and driving a car can actually
become dangerous. Cataract sufferers may also be troubled
by bothersome glare, halos around lights, or even double vision.
Currently, there is not treatment to reverse or prevent the
development of cataracts. Once they form, the only way to
achieve clear vision again is to physically remove the cataract
from the eye.
