What Are Cataracts?

A cataract is a clouding of the clear lens of the eye, and they usually result from the natural aging process. Cataracts often progress slowly, so you may not notice differences in your vision early in their development.

Common symptoms of cataracts include blurry sight, trouble seeing at night, and difficulty reading, driving, or focusing on fine details. While glasses and contact lenses can help with the initial symptoms, eventually cataracts will impair your eyesight enough that they require removal via surgery.
