Cataract is the clouding of the lens in the eye that effects vision. Most cataracts are related to aging. Risk factors are diseases like diabetes, personal behavior such as smoking, alcohol use, and environmental factors like prolonged exposure to ultraviolet sunlight.
According to the 3rd National Blindness Survey done in 2002, the top three causes of visual impairment are cataract, error of refraction, and glaucoma. Cataract is the number one cause of reversible blindness in the country.
What are the symptoms of cataract?
- Cloudy or blurry vision

- Glare. Headlights, lamps, or sunlight may appear too bright. A halo may appear around lights.
- Poor night vision
- Double vision or multiple images in one eye
- Frequent prescription changes in your eyeglasses or contact lenses.
