What Are Cataracts?
Cataracts form when your eyes’ natural lenses become clouded and foggy with age, and sometimes by injury. These lenses are clear at birth, but over time the proteins inside of them break down, resulting in vision loss. Some symptoms of cataracts include blurry vision, objects appearing fuzzy or faded in color, seeing halos around light sources, and difficulty seeing at night. Glasses can temporarily fix your vision, but the only way to fully restore your sight is to remove your cataracts via surgery and replace them with artificial intraocular lenses (IOLs).
