What is a cataract?

A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s natural lens. The lens is mostly made of water and protein. As we age, some of the protein may clump together and start to cloud a small area of the lens. This is a cataract, and over time, it may grow larger and cloud more of the lens, making it harder to see.

What are the symptoms of a cataract?

  • Glare and halos around lights
  • Faded colors
  • Frequent changes in glasses or contact lens prescription
  • Double or smearing of vision in one eye
