CATARACT

is a cloudiness that develops in the lens of the eye. It is often caused by old age. Other causes include diabetes, hypertension, trauma and exposure to UV light or radiation.

As Cataracts become more opaque, visual acuity is lost. Vision becomes blurry, while contrast and color become less vivid.
