A cataract is a clouding of the eye's natural lens, which lies behind the iris and the pupil. It happens when protein builds up in the lens of the eye, making it cloudy. This prevents light from passing clearly through the lens, causing some loss of vision. Cataracts are the most common cause of vision loss in people over age 40 and are the principal cause of blindness in the world.
HOW IS CATARACT DIAGNOSED?
The ophthalmologist can diagnose the issue with the help of eye exam where the doctor will check the dilation of the pupils and other parts of the lens and eyes. Other vision tests and a tonometry may also be conducted for diagnosis.
HOW IS CATARACT TREATED?
The treatment may involve use of prescription glasses or contact lenses if the condition can be corrected with this. But if the cataract interferes with your daily activities, you may need a cataract surgery.
