Cataracts affect the lens of the eye and your ability to see clearly. The lens is located in the front chambers of the eye and all light must come through it before reaching the inside of the eye and retina. Pf something goes wrong with the lens, it will affect all your vision.
Specifically, the lens becomes cloudy with cataracts. In most cases this is due to natural aging. It can occur in one eye at a time; this means that it won’t necessarily develop at the same rate in both eyes, but both eyes can be affected at some point.
Because cataracts are most often due to aging, they most often occur to older adults, especially those who are 80 years old or older.
Cataract formation denotes the optical degradation of the natural crystalline to a point where vision is impaired. Cataract surgery involves the operative steps to remove and potentially replace the degraded natural lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL).
