Cataracts - Overview

Cataracts - Overview

If the lens becomes cloudy, the light reaching the retina is blurred and distorted, and your vision is affected. This clouded lens is called a cataract, and it must be removed before vision can be restored. A clouded lens can be compared to a window that is frosted or "fogged" with steam. Cataracts are not cancerous. They can be treated with a surgical procedure that has become a fairly common procedure in the United States.
