What are Cataracts?

Blog Comments Off on What are Cataracts?

Cataracts occur when the lens in the eye, which is normally clear, becomes cloudy causing hazy vision. They are frequently found to occur as the lens naturally ages, but can also develop from certain medications, injury or diabetes.  Initial stages of cataracts can be managed with a visual correction.  However, when the cloudiness progresses to a stage where the vision cannot be improved by glasses, cataract surgery can be performed.  Today, cataract surgery is a very common outpatient procedure.
