2. Cataracts

A cataract is a cloudy area in the lens of the eye that leads to a decrease in vision. This happens as people age, but it can be congenital or occur due to excessive sun exposure, smoking, eye injuries, using certain medications and diseases, such as diabetes. Other cataract symptoms include difficulties with night vision and seeing halos around objects.

If the cataract isn’t severe, a new eyeglass prescription may provide better visual acuity. Cataract surgery resolves the problem by removing the natural lens and replacing it with an artificial one.6Boyd, Kierstan. ‘What Are Cataracts?’ American Academy of Ophthalmology, 26 Feb. 2021, www.aao.org/eye-health/diseases/what-are-cataracts.7‘Slide Show: Age-Related Vision Problems.’ Mayo Clinic, Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research, 10 Mar. 2021, www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/adult-health/multimedia/vision-problems/sls-20076758’s=2.
