A cataract is the gradual formation of clouding of the transparent crystalline lens inside the eye. It is painless and is not caused by improper wearing of glasses or eyestrain. However, when it forms in the eyes, light transmission becomes progressively scattered, causing slow impairment of vision. In its most advanced stages, cataract causes the black pupil of the eye to whiten or turn into dark brown. Symptoms of having cataracts include blurry or dimmed vision because light rays can’t focus on the retina.
If you are recently diagnosed with cataracts, you don’t have to worry too much as they are common among people over 60 years old. About 60% of the said population are diagnosed with the condition. Furthermore, cataracts are treatable. With the right cataract removal service, you will be on your way to a clearer, better vision once again.
