What is CATARACT
A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of eye, which affects vision. It can occur in one or both eyes. Most Cataracts are age-related and people after the age of 50 years should get their eyes checked by an ophthalmologist.
In our eyes, we have a natural lens that acts as a camera. The lens bends light rays that enter the eye in a manner that the rays fall on the retina and help us see clearly.
However, as age Progresses, the lens loses its transparency and starts to get cloudy, which leads the vision to deteriorate, and it is like looking through a foggy or dusty car windshield making things look blurry, hazy or less colourful.
