Cataracts are associated with the aging process and are most common in older adults. Cataract surgery is one of the safest and most effective surgical procedures performed today.
Having a cataract can affect your vision by making it blurry, foggy or less colorful. A cloudy lens may impair the ability of your eye to bend light rays that come into the eye to help you see. The only way to remove a cataract is through surgery, in which the eye’s lens is replaced with a clear artificial lens.
