Cataracts

18 Jul

Cataracts are cloudy areas that cover the lens of the eye. They can affect your ability to perceive fine detail and distinguish certain colors. Symptoms include blurred vision and glare. Risk factors besides age include smoking, diabetes, and prolonged use of corticosteroids. Cataract surgery, the most common surgical procedure in the U.S., replaces the clouded lens with an artificial lens implant.
