A Cataract is the clouding of the lens inside the eye, which leads to a decrease in vision. It most commonly occurs due to aging, as lens proteins denature and degrade over time. Environmental factors, such as exposure to UV, can accelerate the formation of cataracts.
Cataracts usually affect patients above 50 years of age. Cataracts are treatable, and the procedure is quick and simple, with a short recovery period.
