What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts refer to a condition in which the normally clear lens of the eye becomes cloudy, causing glare, and affecting a person’s ability to see clearly. Cataracts rarely affect younger people, while people 60 and older are at the greatest risk of developing cataracts. Other factors, such as certain diseases and injuries, as well as heredity, can also increase your risk of developing cataracts.

Once you have a cataract that is affecting your vision, it will have to be removed. Cataracts can only get worse with time.
