Cataract is a clouding of the natural lens in the eye which leads to a gradual drop of vision. Usually it develops gradually and can affect one or both eyes. Symptoms are faded colors, blurry vision, halos, and night vision problems.
The main cause of cataract is age, but other causes are related to systemic disease, certain systemic medications, eye trauma, radiation exposure and genetic disorders.
