What are Cataracts?

Cataracts are clouding of the natural, clear lens of the eye. It usually develops as we age, but occasionally cataract formation may be seen in newborn babies and young ones too. These congenital cataracts could be the result of genetic tendencies, drug reaction caused during the developmental stage, eye infection, trauma or injury, etc. However, whatever may be the cause, cataract leads to a blurred or double vision which makes it difficult for an individual to perform his/her daily chores.

But, as a caution, you should not let cataract severe enough as any delay in seeking proper and timely treatment may leave you visually impaired for the rest of your life.

Risk Factors For Developing Cataracts Include:

  • Aging - 65 years and above
  • Prolonged use of steroids
  • Excessive exposure to UV rays
  • Diabetes
  • Eye injury/trauma
  • Alcohol abuse/ chain smoking
  • Obesity
