WHAT IS A CATARACT?

Inside our eyes, we have a natural lens. The lens bends (refracts) light rays that come into the eye to help us see. The lens should be clear, but as we age, normal proteins begin to break down in the lens, gradually developing a cataract and causing blurred and cloudy vision. There are other medical factors that can cause a cataract to develop more rapidly.
