Dear Lybrate user
cataract is any opacity in lens or its capsule. This results from denaturation of lens protein. This damage to lens is permanent. If lens opacity is small and away from visual axis then glass may be helpful. After few months lens opacity involve the whole of lens. And this stage need surgical treatment.
