A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear natural lens of the eye. This clouding impairs vision and may result in many kinds of visual impairments.
Age, UV radiation exposure, smoking, diabetes, some medications, and genetic factors can all cause cataract development.
Cataracts are extremely frequent, particularly in the elderly. They rank among the main global causes of visual impairment.
Blurred or foggy vision, trouble seeing at night, heightened light sensitivity, seeing haloes around lights, and faded colours are common symptoms.
Although cataracts cannot always be prevented, you can lower your risk by not smoking and by donning sunglasses to shield your eyes from UV radiation.
A thorough eye exam, which could involve a dilated eye exam, a slit-lamp examination, and a visual acuity test, can be used by an eye doctor to identify cataracts.
In order to restore clear vision, cataract surgery involves removing the clouded natural lens and replacing it with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL).
No, following cataract surgery, cataracts do not recur. On the other hand, a straightforward laser surgery can treat posterior capsule opacification (PCO), a subsequent ailment that some patients may develop.
