Cataracts are a clouding of the eye's lens that causes bluriness and vision loss. The word cataract literally means waterfall and when severe, a cataract is like trying to see through a waterfall.
Cataracts occur when the protein that makes up the lens becomes clumped. Scientists believe there many causes such as smoking, diabetes, UV light and just general wear and tear on the protein. Fortunately, cataracts are highly treatable.
Cataract surgery, in which the clouded lens is removed and replaced with a clear plastic one, is now a relatively simple and highly successful procedure.
