What Are Cataracts?

A cataract is a cloudiness of the lens in your eye that prevents light from being focused clearly on the retina, which can impair your vision. Cataracts sometimes remain small and unnoticeable. But with more developed cataracts, it’s like viewing the world through a foggy window.

Cataracts Are Natural

Cataracts typically form naturally as you age and, just like your skin, undergo age-related changes.
