Cataracts are the clouding of the natural lens that is found within your eye. This clouding usually occurs with age but it can also be the result of trauma or genetics.
Cataracts often cause a change in vision. Depending on the person, this change can be experienced differently. For some people, cataracts can make it difficult to see objects at a distance, such as street signs. For others, fine print may become difficult to read. Some people experience trouble with glare.
When cataracts start to impact on daily activities (e.g. driving, reading, golf, general mobility) you may need to consider having them removed.
