A cataract is clouding of the eye’s lens that prevents the eye from focusing on lights, colors, and shapes — causing images to appear fuzzy or blurred. The development of cataracts is a normal part of the aging process; however, cataracts may sometimes develop early as a result of disease, trauma to the eye, medications, or exposure to UV light. Cataracts develop in nearly everyone, but they occur more often in people with diabetes, and the only way to treat them is with cataract surgery. Although people can live with some cataracts if they are not that bad, if the cataracts become worse, they can impede your vision significantly.
A cataract cannot be treated with drops or diet, and it is not a film that covers the eye that can be removed. The most effective way to treat cataracts is to remove the natural lens of the eye and replace it with an artificial lens that is not cloudy called an Intraocular Lens (IOL).
