Cataracts

A cataract is a cloudy opacity in the lens of the eye. The lens is normally clear, and is a structure that sits behind the iris, or colored part of the eye. When we are born the lens is clear, and with age, trauma, medicines or other medical disease, the lens may become cloudy. The most common cause of cataract is age, and this is a natural change in the eye. Unfortunately there are no medicines or laser to treat cataracts. However, when the cataract is still mild, simply changing the glasses is typically all that needs to be done. When changing the glasses prescription no longer helps, treatment for a cataract is with outpatient surgery.
