What Are Cataracts?
As we reach our mid to late forties, the lens begins to naturally lose its flexibility, and loses the ability to see near and far.
In addition, over years, the lens usually clouds and limits smooth transit of light. This clouding process is called a cataract, and usually occurs in both eyes simultaneously. Most cataracts develop as the eyes age naturally, but they can also result from trauma, genetics, prior surgeries, disease, or a congenital problem.
